Technical info:
The 109 is the middle ski in Automatic´s freeride series . It has a light wood core with carbon reinforcement. The sandwich construction, where the edge is folded down at the front and back, is there to prevent wear and tear. It has a lot of flex, especially in the back ski. High camber and symmetrical tapering are the main features on the Automatic. The skis have relatively much sidecut, and the carve zone is short.

On snow:
Atomic Automatic 109 is a type of modern freeride ski that has come in vogue. A long front ski with rocker and taper ensures good float in powder. It does not have the long turning radius of a typical big mountain ski, and it flutters a little at high speed. But in return you get a playful and versatile ski that also delivers on the groomed slopes. The high camber makes it a little less nimble in the turning transitions.
