The Atomic Ritual is a daily driver for skiers that are looking for a playful, and snappy ride in the ungroomed terrain. Atomics Ti Backbone Construction has a full wood core with titanium inserts that run the full length of the ski, for a powerful performance, but a lightweight feel. At 103 mm underfoot the Ritual has the routine of finding soft snow in the trees, practicing your powder 8s in a wide open bowl, and being strapped to a pack for a short hike up to the peak. Atomics Step Down Sidewall has the ability to absorb impacts from sweet airs, and gives you a grip on the snow when things get a little firm. With a 20% Rocker 65% camber 15% rocker profile the Ritual has great floatability in the soft snow, and a good spring to in between turns. With the construction and backbone technology the Ritual is best for a lighter weight skier looking for a snappy quick turning machine. If your routine is get up, ski your ass off all day, hit the après party at night, then do it again, the Atomic Ritual is a habit forming.
Bought the Rituals in late November and have not even desired to dip into my quiver of "specialty" skis. About 35 days so far on these rockets and they continue to amaze. We've had a lot of powder days up here in the Northern Rockies this season and the Rituals rip and float better than my 115 waisted pow-specific skis. Outruns on fast groomers (50mph) are just as fun. They even turn nicely in the bumps, skied out steeps, crud, mank, and float over wind crust. Many skis with metal are just too damp but the Austrians got it right by braiding the metal into the sheets of the ski's core. This is a lively ski thats just a pleasure in most type of conditions (I have not had any hard icy days yet this year!). I'm 6'1, 200lb ex-racer type who's skis about 90% off-piste (looking for pow, pillows, etc) and these Rituals are the best ski I have ever skied for my specific needs. They rip.
This is Rick. Just got off of Atomic's Ritual. I'd rate this ski 3 out of 5 stars. Someone who lives out West in a lot softer snow, this ski would be great. On groomers it gets really chattery, really doesn't like to be on edge, it's really to make short turns. It's just not a fun ski unless you have deep snow.
Hey. I'm Steve and I just got off the Atomic Ritual. This is a great advanced-to-expert ski for all-mountain. Great on steep slopes, great edges in really fast speeds and in long turns, short turns. It's an all-around perfect ski for any advanced-to-expert skier.
Hi, I'm Kevin. I just got off the Atomic Ritual. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. This ski kind of surprised me because it's a little big longer than I normally ski, it's a 190 length, and it does have metal in it, but yet I found it pretty forgiving for this type of ski. Normally I'd ski around a 183 or something in this. I prefer skis generally that don't have metal in them, but this ski was surprisingly forgiving, it was definitely stable at speed. It actually handled slower speeds relatively well. So, I think this is best suited definitely for the guy that's a little bit bigger, more aggressive skier, and is going to be skiing you know, all mountain, kind of big mountain, little bit of powder, crud type stuff. With the rocker, it's very easy to initiate the turn. But just a really good, solid, all around, all mountain ski.
Hi. I'm Mike. I just got off the Atomic Ritual. Phenomenal ski. 5 out of 5 stars. Really enjoyed this ski. High speed turner. Big, wide open turns. If that's your style, this ski is definitely for you. It holds an edge great. Good ski for the out west guy looking for some powder, looking for the crud, looking for all the junk out there that nobody else wants to ski. This ski is definitely for you. So, I enjoyed it very much, again, 5 out of 5 stars. Atomic Ritual.
Hi, this Hans with the Atomic Ritual. This ski was a little bit squirrely for my taste, I like to step on my skis a little more. It just felt squirrely, but definitely probably a ski for big mountain conditions, deep snow, I think would be a great ski. But again, 3 out of 5 for the conditions I skied it in.
Yo, this is Josh here. I just got off the Atomic Ritual. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. This is definitely going to be an intermediate to advanced level skier. It's a big mountain ski, likes to rip big, long turns. Really stable under foot, holds an edge really well, especially at high speeds. A one ski quiver for the guy who's skiing out west, or big mountains outings. 4 out of 5 stars.
