The new Atomic Smoke Ti remains a fantastic ski for the intermediate to mellow advanced skier who will be cruising the groomed slopes at various speeds. Atomic has redesigned their system binding interface with new ARC technology. It helps the ski flex naturally, and easier than ever before. It has Shockilla elastomers that dampen vibrations, for a smooth and stable ride. A Float Deck helps the ski to adapt to variances in the terrain, by allowing it to bed naturally, all while keeping the boot/ski interface floating freely. The ARC systems Torsion Control guides the Float Deck to strengthen the torsional stiffness of the ski. An Anchor Point directs your power right at the center of the ski, for more control, and easier steering. The Cap Fiber Ti core, and Step Down Side Wall 2.0 Construction of the Smoke Ti has a perfect mix of forgiveness, and easy skiing combined with stability. It also increases the durability in the tip and tail while still giving you strong edge hold under foot. Atomic All Mountain Rocker has 15% of the ski with tip rocker to help you initiate turns quicker, easier, and it will absorb the negative energy, when the snow gets cruddy. Camber underfoot will give you rebound, and stability with your turns. The Smoke Tis 76 mm waist is best for testing your limits on the groomers, and making medium to short radius turns. If you are an intermediate to mellow advanced skier, looking for a ski that will be a great value, and be stable and quick to turn the redesigned Smoke Ti will have you putting out the fire.
Hi, I'm Kevin. I just got off the brand new Atomic Smoke Ti. This ski gets 5 out of 5 stars from me. Number one word for this ski definitely is value. There is an incredible amount of value in this ski, with the new ARC technology, the step down sidewall, the rocker in the tip, there is just an incredible amount of technology that actually translate the true on snow performance here. Initiates a turn very very quickly, very smooth on snow feel. Extremely forgiving, I was actually able to carve and initiate a ski from the backseat, but then when I got forward and pressured the tips, this ski really hooked up very quickly, very smooth on edge, and just very, very tenacious grip, but by no means overpowering. So, if you're an advancing intermediate looking for something to take you to the next level definitely check out this ski.
Hi, this is Trey with Atomic's Smoke Ti. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars, for me. I think it's a great ski if you plan on taking lessons and learning how to ski and get your skis out from underneath you, putting them on edge and actually following through on a turn, but if you're a beginner-intermediate who's just going to go out there and thinks they know how to do everything and just skid around and have.. just enjoying themselves, I think there's better choices out there. So, if you want to progress, it's an excellent ski. It really transitions into the turn nicely. It holds an edge great at this price point, but again, if you're just skidding around, choose a different ski.
Hi, this Hans. I just got off the Atomic Smoke Ti. Smoke Ti is a great ski for somebody that is at your lower intermediate level skier, wants to advance quickly. You can slide the ski, it will chatter a little bit at high speed. I give this ski a 3 out of 5, but definitely appropriate ski for that intermediate level skier.
Hi, I'm Steve and I just got off the Atomic Smoke Ti. I give this 5 out of 5 stars. This is an awesome ski for an intermediate, advanced-intermediate skier. It's 76 at the waist, but it's got titanium in it. It's very quick and snappy. It would be great for anybody skiing Midwest and East coast conditions that wants a ski that can really help them get better, make quick short turns, definitely get those skis more parallel and easier to kind of transition from edge to edge. It made skiing very easy, a lot of fun, because like I said, it transitioned very fast from edge to edge, but also it was very smooth on big, wide open turns. So, this would be the perfect ski for the intermediate, advanced-intermediate that's trying to get better and wants a ski that's going to help them do so.
It's Rick. Just got off of Atomic Smoke Ti. I'd rate this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's great for the intermediate to advanced skier. Holds an edge really well, slides out, go all over the mountain with this ski. At higher speeds it does tend to chatter, so that's why I only rated this ski 4 out of 5.
I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Atomic's Smoke Ti. For what this ski is I would give it 4 out of 5. It's a great skiing ski for its price-point. It's nice, it's stable. Very quick edge-to-edge. Very easy to turn. The new Atomic Arc binding system you really get a deep even flex out of the ski and you can feel it with every turn. If you're an intermediate and you're just going to spend most of your time on-piste looking for a ski to really help you step up your game, this would be a great one. 5 out of 5.
Q: I currently own the K2 Omni 4.5 and I'm looking to upgrade. My skill level has improved to Intermediate/Advanced since I purchased the K2s. I mostly ski, on-piste, in Vermont and I love speed and carving, however I was hoping for my next ski to be better at handling the occasional powder. (the K2's were not great during my last visit to Utah.)
Do the Atomic Smoke TI's fit the bill? Any other suggestions?
A: At only 76mm underfoot, the Atomic Smoke TI's (while solid for your skill level) will not provide you with a much better experience on the occasional pow days. I would recommend checking out the Rossignol Experience 83's instead, as you will get a similar performance with a lot more floating power.
