Testers' Ratings

The new Atomic Redster X7 WB immediately pleased our reviewers who tried it on chopped snow. This ski was awarded for its excellent manoeuvrability in its category and received the "Reviewers' Choice" award for the 2019/2020 season. You can do almost everything with this ski – it is "progressive, light and manoeuvrable," writes Laura Jardi, "it requires little effort for great performance," confirms Alex Favaro. "Very easy when entering medium and short curves," concludes Federico Casnati. For its category, this ski "shows performance when the speed and slope increase," says Giovanni Manfrini, who considers it almost too demanding for the target audience. Its rather narrow edge line penalises it a little on chopped snow, where it tends to lose stability at high speed (Alex Favaro), it actually tends to be rigid under certain conditions (Stefano Belingheri). It is therefore recommended to those who are looking for a ski to progress quickly and slide on multiple slopes without having to exaggerate as regards speed.
