The Atomic Vantage 90 CTI will be one hot selling ski for the advanced to expert skier this season. Atomic's new Carbon Tank Mesh does a fantastic job of increasing the strength of the ski without increasing the total weight of the ski. The Carbon Tank Mesh is a woven structure that sits on top of the core on the entire length of the ski. A Titanium Backbone boosts up the torsional strength and additional power for charging through crud or charging down a steep groomer. The Vantage 90 includes Atomic's new Firewall Sidewalls that are thicker over the binding mounting platform for additional power transfer, and they have flex groves to provide a rounded, even flex. All Mountain Rocker will initiate turns quickly, keep you on top of the fresh snow, and absorb negative vibrations caused by crud. Camber underfoot delivers a high amount of rebound to spring you into your next turn. Rocker in the tail improves the powder skiing ability of the Vantage 90. The 90mm waist feels very edgy on the groomers, and will give you excellent flotation in all but the deepest of powder. If you want a ski that is highly versatile for any type of skiing, and will do them all very well, you should grab your Atomic Vantage 90 CTI while you can.
I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the new Atomic Vantage 90 CTI. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It was nice and stable. It's great for that strong intermediate to expert level skier. If you're looking for something that can really charge the bumps, take on some fresh snow and lay down a turn, this is a great ski for ya. 5 out of 5.
Hey, this is Hunter. Just got off the Atomic Vantage 90 CTI. This is a 5 star ski. It's a 6 star ski. This is one of the best skis I've skied on in years. Tip it over and rip it and the thing shreds any terrain, any turn. I haven't have this much fun on a ski in a while. If you want to go fast and had a good time it's the ski for you. 5 out of 5 stars. I love it.
This is Hans. I just came off the Atomic Vantage CTI. The CTI has a new technology - it's called Tank Carbon Mesh. It will really give the ski a lot more rebound with the carbon in it. It also holds better on higher speed. With a 90 underneath the foot, it's a perfect ski to ski east coast, west coast to midwest, I believe it's a ski that will do everything right. I give this a 4 out of 5 and it's designed for your good intermediate to expert skier.
Evan here with the Atomic Vantage 90. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's going to be great for your advanced to expert skier looking to rip some all-mountain turns mainly on the frontside though. Very stable at high speeds, not hard to get in and out of turns. Really a great time. 5 out of 5.
Hi, I'm Thom and I just got off of the Atomic Vantage 90 CTI. This is a 5 out of 5 ski for me all day long. This thing is just super, super fun. It's geared at your high level intermediate up through expert level skier and really the sweet spot is that big. It's not a super challenging ski to ski but when you put it up on edge it absolutely rips a carve. It's got a lot of pop, a lot of finishing power to the turn and just such a fun ride. So, if you're looking for something super versatile aimed at on-trail but also pretty versatile off-trail, check it out. 5 out of 5.

Q: I am an intermediate getting to advanced skier and I am 6 ft 2inches tall and about 195 pounds. What length ski should I go for if I'm looking to buy a versatile all mountain ski that is great on hard packed groomers but also handles a good powder day.
A: At your height and weight the ideal size range for you would be 178-185cm. I would recommend the 184cm length for you especially on a ski that has tip/tail taper and the rocker that the Vantage 90 CTI does.

Q: Hi folks. I'm an advanced-intermediate skier. I'm 5'9", 250lbs. Should I be looking at a ski that is 180cm+, due to weight? Or is 176cm fine? My legs are strong, but I worry too long a ski will keep me from enjoying it. I also want to get down the mountain, though.
A: At your weight the 184cm length is going to be your best option, especially if you have strong legs. The issue you will run into with the 176 is that you have the weight and strength to overflex the ski which will make it feel less stable and harder to control because it will want to slide instead of hold an edge. With the rocker and tip taper of this ski the 184 ski still very nimble and won't require to you to fight the ski, especially at the end of the day when your legs are tired.

Q: Hello I have my ski selection down to 2 ski's and need help. either the Atomic Vantage 90 CTI (176) or the Rosingnol Experience 88HD (180) I am a solid intermediate, maybe advanced intermediate. I can ski pretty aggressive but need a of work on my technique. I and 6'1" 187 lbs. 49 years old and been skiing for 4 years.
A: Both are great skis, if you are looking for a ski that is a little stronger off the trail the Vantage 90 CTi would be the better choice for you. If you are looking for a little stronger of a carver the Experience 88 HD would be the better ski for you. You are correct on the sizing for both of them.

Q: What do the terms "frontside" & "park" mean in ski reviews
A: You are lightweight for your height, and can create a lot of leverage on your ski thanks to your ability and height, making the 176cm the optimal size for you. This length will give you stability and flotation without being too demanding.

Q: on the fence as between 176 and 184. I'm 5'11", 185 lbs.; solid int/adv. ski mainly mid-Atlantic, sadly, with 1-2 trips to CO/UT per year. looking to improve to solid adv/exp. don't want too much ski, but want something that hopefully will get me to the next level. also do you have a binding preference for this ski? thanks in advance for any guidance!
A: Based on your weight and ability the 176cm will be the optimal size for you. The Salomon/Atomic Warden or STH WTR 13 with a 90mm brake is a great binding for this ski.

Q: I'm 170lbs, 6'0", Intermediate advanced. I'm an aggressive skiier, mostly front mountain, will do back mountain sometimes. What would be a good ski length for me for the Vantage 90s? I'm thinking the 176 or 184.
