Atomic has tweaked the Vantage lineup a number of times in the last 5 years, each time further refining the smooth, versatile performance of the skis. Landing on the newest version prior to last season, they gave the 2019-2020 editions a slight topsheet update but no other changes. The benefit for you, the skier, of all that devoted R&D is a strong, forward-thinking all-mountain ski that is not some whacky experiment. Like a 42-ounce ribeye tomahawk (yes those exist, and the last price we saw was 120 bucks), the flavor of the Vantage 97 TI has been refined by the keenest chefs in the business. A bit stronger and more powerful than the carbon-centric version, the 97 C, the 97 TI requests to be skied aggressively by a rock-solid all-mountain human. Time to chow down. Similar skis: K2 Mindbender 99 Ti, Salomon QST 99, Dynastar Legend X96.
