Technical info:
Automatic is the new freeride ski from Atomic and is, according to the manufacturer, supposed to be something in between the freestyle model Bent Chetler and the Atlas powder ski. The Automatic combines a relatively short turning radius and a fair amount of rocker with camber at the waist. The tips are high and the tail is raised. It has a somewhat soft flex in the back, while the front ski is stiffer. These skis have a lot of taper at both ends, which gives short sidecut despite the long length. The weight is average.

On snow:
If you find that the Bent Chetler is too soft and unstable, or that the Atlas is too brutal, you should check out the Automatic with its 116 millimeter waist. Of these three models, the Automatic has by far the best all-round qualities. It has the playfulness of Bent Chetler and the freeride features of the Atlas - versatile and easy to maneuver. However, we miss that massive feeling in big turns, both in hard and loose snow conditions. It suits those who want to have an all-purpose ski that can handle reverse landings.
