ATOMIC

VANTAGE 107 TI (137-107-124) 18.4m@180 (TC,TR,SV,TW) Wood/Metal.  Light enough to double as a touring ski, but with the performance you demand both on and off piste, the Vantage 107 Ti uses Titanium Tank Mesh to keep the power level up without creating excess weight and contoured tips to give you a floatier, surfier feel in powder.

VANTAGE 97 TI (131.5-97-120.5) 19.1m@180 (TC,TR,SV) Wood/Metal. The Vantage 97 Ti features construction that delivers a ski that is loaded with power that feels light on your feet. Titanium reinforces the ski in strategic areas of the ski that improves the edge grip when conditions get firm.
