Manufacturers are constantly expanding their lines of skin skis and Atomic is no exception. 2018 welcomes this brand new Redster C9 Skintec. It is a true high-end classic ski that returns with a lighter construction compared to its previous version. The ski is more maneuverable and offers better performance off the tracks.
What are the specifications of the Atomic Redster C9 Skintec cross-country ski?
Featuring a new ultralight Nomex core, the difference between this version and the former one feels obvious from the first run on. Technically more accessible, the ski balance is improved, it doesn’t stick to the snow when you’re pushing laterally off the track. The 100% mohair skins ensure a solid grip and more importantly they deliver an excellent glide. Sidecuts were also slightly redesigned to offer more performance without sacrificing the comfort feel on the ski. The camber coupled with flat “power kick” sections make the ski efficient on all types of snow. The lighter weight makes the ski more steerable and easier to use in variable conditions. The Redster C9 Skintec aims for a large audience of skiers looking for a high-end skin ski. If the price seems high, we think it’s worth it on the long term. You can easily keep it for a few years if you maintain it well and you can replace the skins when they’re worn.
Who is the Atomic Redster C9 Skintec cross-country ski designed for?
The ski is very easy to use considering the amount of performance it delivers. We recommend it to skiers who focus on build quality and who want the best gear available. The ski glides very well and that makes the difference with other skin skis. Every brand is working hard for making the fastest and easiest ski. It looks like Atomic just won the battle. The manufacturer is slowly but surely taking the lead in this new domain.
