Testers' Ratings

Since it was introduced, the Atomic Redster TR has always been highly appreciated by our reviewers for its stability, its cut handling and its ability to adapt to wide turns. This ski is aimed at Class-2 skiers – skiers who still have a technical margin in front of them – but our reviewers considered it "out of category" and rather adapted to a more advanced audience. "It's a light ski but it has a considerable structure," said Favaro, "the entry into curves surprised me – it quickly enters the curve and makes it easy to loop". Its ease at the start of turns is surprising, but always fast and safe, thanks to its edge lines and the not-too-wide tip; Stefano Belingheri says that the ski is "very stable and easy to control; it responds very well to gradients". Giordano Magri praises its edge grip: "fun, easy, more powerful when you're on the edges". For the suggested level, it proves to be excellent for all types of turns, but it is more stable and easy in large turns where it "has good adhesion to the terrain at any speed, [is] precise and controllable preferably on hard snow," concludes Giovanni Manfrini. For high-level skiers, it's the ideal ski to go off all day while for Class-2 skiers, it's more difficult to master, "technically and physically demanding" (Giovanni Manfrini), difficult when entering turns if you manoeuvre the ski, it allows for barely any mistakes.
