Atomic realized a few years ago that "all-mountain" skiing meant something different in North America than it did in Europe, and set out testing and getting feedback from a diverse group of skiers in the US and Canada (our local hangout, Crystal Mountain, was one of the venues). Skiers wanted not only strong edgehold and confidence on-piste, but the ability to bust out some moves past the backcountry gate or in the trees should the day warrant it - and the Atomic Maverick 88 Ti Skis was one of the stars of the testing sessions. With a light and nimble construction backed up with a bit of Titanal, a Dura Cap Sidewall for direct-to-edge power that still resists chipping at the tips and tails, and an All Mountain Rocker with only a whisper of tail rocker, the Maverick 88 Ti goes head to head with the dedicated "carver" group, but does so much more.
All Mountain Rocker – 15% Tip Rocker / 75% Camber / 10% Tail Rocker
Flow Profile – Flow Profile blends the perfect amount of rocker and camber for optimal effective edge contact during every turn. Utilizing the latest generation of HRZN Tech Tip, Flow Profile delivers the ideal combination of camber, shovel taper, and tip rocker to create a ski that hooks up on hardpack as well as floats in fresh snow.
HRZN Tech Tip – HRZN Tech adds 10% more surface area at your ski tips. For awesome flotation in powder plus less tip deflection and better tracking through chop.
OMatic Construction – The ultimate balance of stiffness and flex throughout the length of the ski. Precision milled poplar wood, lightweight fiberglass, and titanal layer or carbon insets. OMatic delivers effortless performance, balance, and stability from tip to tail.
Light Woodcore – Made from poplar wood, this core optimizes the ski's weight without sacrificing any shock absorption or stability.
Ti Powered – Layers of Titanal alloy above and below the core mean smooth cruising even on chattery ice.
Dura Cap Sidewall – Sidewall for power transmission combined with a small cap for durability.
