The Atomic Vantage 95 C is a perfect ski for any intermediate to advanced skier looking for on trail and off trail versatility. The 95mm waist can carve up the frontside with the best of them, while still maintaining a high amount of floatation and off trail power, for anything off piste, but the deepest of powder days. Atomic's Carbon Tank Mesh adds a layer of rigid woven carbon across the ski that increases the overall strength of the ski, without adding any extra weight to the ski. The Vantage 95 has the Light Woodcore that is made from Poplar wood to be very strong, but also very light that adds to the snappiness of the ski. The Vantage 95 also is made with Atomic's Firewall Sidewalls that run the entire length of the ski that have flex groves in them that give you power transmission and edge grip. The All Mountain Rocker Consists of the front 15% of the tip that is rockered, and the rear 10% of the tail has rocker to improve the soft snow skiing ability, and maneuverability, while the middle 75% of the Vantage 95 has camber in increase the edge hold and rebound on the firm stuff. If you are looking for an incredible value ski that skis well for a wide range of skiers, in a wide range of conditions the Atomic Vantage 95 C makes a fine selection.
This ski is branded to be the evolution of the Theory. It's a totally different ski. The Theory was much livelier and better off road. The lack of tail rise in the Vantage 95 makes them dull and sticky in bumps. Disappointed.
Hey, this is Hunter. Just got off the Atomic Vantage 95. This is a 5 star ski. It's out of the park. For your advanced all-mountain skier who likes a playful snappy ski, you can still skid a turn. It's great in kind of all conditions. Really snappy edge-to-edge. You can bury a carve with it but you can still scrub speed when you need to so it's really versatile. Light underfoot. A great offering from Atomic. Really enjoyed it. 5 stars.
Hi, I'm Ryan. I just got off the Atomic Vantage 95. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. It's a ski I really, really enjoyed. Very confidence-inspiring at higher speeds. It truly is an all-mountain ski. Works well in the bumps and the trees, out in the groomers. It's a great ski that can take you everywhere on the mountain. Really good for your intermediate to advanced level skiers.
Hi, I'm Thom. I just got off the Atomic Vantage 95. I give this 5 out of 5 stars. Just a super enjoyable ski. It's real target is your kind of mid-intermediate up through high level advanced skier. But the thing just goes into a turn real easy. It's got a lot of pop. It's one of those skis that has a lot of energy to it. It's not gonna be this damp kind of racy ski. It's a really lively poppy feeling ski. And at 95 underfoot, it's super versatile in terms of taking it all over the hill. So, if you're just looking for a fun, light and lively ski, this is absolutely it. 5 out of 5.
I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Atomic Vantage 95. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's very poppy, it's very snappy. I think it makes a great all-mountain ski for that advanced-to-expert skier, especially the lighter weight variety. If you're a little bit heavier, I found it to be a little bit soggy but if you're a lightweight guy, this is a great ski for you. 4 out of 5 stars.
Evan here. Just got off the Vantage 95. I give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's going to be great for your intermediate to advanced skier just looking to rip all-mountain turns. Definitely more of your frontside but with that waist width it tends to turn into a little bigger mountain skiing. Great ski though. Fun. Can ski it fast, can ski it slower. Better on long radius turns. I give it a 4 out of 5.
Hi, this Hans. I just came off the Atomic Vantage 95. The Vantage 95 is a replacement for the series in the last year. Great all-mountain ski for your intermediate to advanced skier. It will do pretty much everything right. Softer in the tip, nice rocker profile to it so when you get into the softer snow and crud it will ski well. But holds really well in high speeds. I give this ski a 4.5 out of 5.
A: It is always nice to get a ski a little bit above your current level, so as you progress you will have the right ski. The Vantage 95 is stable without being too demanding for a lightweight skier like yourself. The 162cm would be the best size for your weight and ability.

Q: OK, now that I bought a pair of Atomic Vantage 95 C size 178cm's, what would be a good safe binding for it. I'm 5'10 180 lbs 59 yrs old, medium aggressive, my din is 6 on my Dynastars cham 87's and that seems to work good. Since its a light ski should I go with a lighter binding? Thanks for the help, Garman
A: The Salomon/Atomic Warden MNC 13 would be my first choice for you. It offers up a strong amount of energy transfer, with solid retention, and consistant release values. The 100mm brake size would be the perfect fit. We have some avaialble here at the moment.

Q: What about size, do they ski short or long? I'm 59, 5'10 180 lbs, advanced intermediate, like to ski groomers and all mountain. Skiing 172cm dynastar cham 87's. Thinking the 178cm's would work, the 170's might be to short. What say you?
