Recreational Racer
Redster G9

The Redster line is Atomic’s spin on the recreational race ski. It’s for people who love making big, fast turns on fresh morning corduroy. They have a full sidewall, a full camber, and run full throttle down the hill. While they’re not as unyielding as a dedicated race ski, these are aggressive. And they might prove to be a little too much for skiers who aren’t comfortable with a forward stance and high edge angles. 

They have a less aggressive sidecut than most modern shaped skis but still will be much forgiving than a FIS ski. That being said, they’re definitely intended only for on-piste use. Crowded slopes or ungroomed slopes aren’t going to be much fun to ride on these. But, you can always switch to a pair of more practical off-piste skis and run away to the rough snow when things get crazy.
