Atomic Blackeye Ski System with Bindings (Men's)
If you ski primarily on groomed terrain, but can't resist a fresh stash of powder when you see one, the Atomic Blackeye Ski System was designed for you. This ski has a little more in the waist width so you don't sink, and the tip is rockered for easier turn initiation in deep snow. The turn radius is still aggressive, so when you're tearing down a groomed run you can still get those tight, precise turns. The Atomic Blackeye is made with a tip-to-tail wood core that's damp, smooth, and responsive.
- Design: All-Mountain
- Dimensions: 123.5-82-108.5
- Camber: Reverse-camber rockered tip/ Traditional camber blend
- Turn Radius: 15.5m (size 167)
- Binding: XTO 12 binding included
- Skill Level: Intermediate
- Tip-to-tail wood core provides damp, smooth ride
- Step Down sidewall for good edge hold through turns
- All-Mountain rockered tip for easy turn initiation in deep snow
- Integrated binding included for good power transmission to ski
- Protrak chassis translate power from binding to ski for quick response
- Titanium laid into ski for increased torsional stiffness

"Hello...we have a 14 year old who's comparing the K2 Rictor, Atomic Blackeye TI and Rossi Exp 83 (167 or 168cm). His older brother recently got the K2 Rictor and is very happy so he'd like something that would ski in all conditions, like the Rictor but prefers not to have the exact same ski. He is an advancing intermediate skier who does spend most of his time on grommers but wants to be able to ski off trail and in a bit of powder when it comes...out west or here around KY. We do bigger trips out west but also ski local slopes in Indianna and Snowshoe West Va. He's truly torn...would you be able to share your recommendations?"

Question by Polly Marquette on 1/22/2013 - 3:50 pm
""All three are great skis. The K2 Amp Rictor Ski System with Bindings is a great ski but is not as wide as the other two and is for a more advanced skier. So, its down to the Atomic Blackeye Ski System with Bindings and the Rossignol Experience 83 Skis. I would recommend the Rossignol Experience 83 Skis. It is 1mm wider than the Atomic Blackeye Ski System with Bindings. This will make a good difference when skiing in the powder in the west. It also does not include a binding. This gives you more freedom to match it up with a binding to more of your preference. They both have a lot in common as far as the technical features and I see why this could be a hard choice. ""

"174 or 181? 5' 11" 175lbs advanced intermediate who spends 80% on Piste and skis all runs at medium to fast speeds. "

"If you were squarely in the "expert" category I'd say 181 simply because they'll be more stable at higher speeds. Since you are more "advanced intermediate" I'd recommend the 174. It's going to offer you the stability you're looking for, without being too difficult to control. "

"I am an advanced skier. 5'10" 150lbs. I have been skiing the past decade on the Atomic C9 170cm. I want to move to the atomic blackeye but I keep going back and forth between the 167 and 174 sizes. I like to ski fast, ski some moguls and some glades; jumps are fun. Mostly east coast skiing with some trips to Colorado. I would appreciate your suggestion."

""I would recommend the 167's for sure. You're going to want the shorter skis for moguls and glades. The snow is harder on the east coast so the shorter ski would perform better for you.""
