Technical info:
Automatic 102 gives associations to the wider freeride ski with rocker and tapering, but they lack the metal reinforcement that many of the other skis in the same category have. The flex is soft and there is a lot of sidecut in the back ski. Otherwise, the large camber stands out. It is a light, so this should be a ski for those who wish to mount touring bindings on the allround ski.

On snow:
Automatic is a freeride ski that is a bit too narrow to be a powder favorite. So why buy it then? Well, it's quick and easy to maneuver on all kinds of snow and functions very well on the slopes. Admittedly, it is a little weaker on the edge grip and stability at speed, compared to its titan reinforced competition. But it partly catches up on playfulness and maneuverability. A good choice if you are looking for a touring ski, and ideal if you're buying your first freeride ski.
