The Atomic Cloud 12 takes Atomic’s high-end racing technology and applies it to a top-of-the range piste ski for confident female skiers who want to make the most of what the pistes have to offer. If you can’t get enough of railing those turns on hardpack or carving early morning groomers, the Atomic Cloud 12 is worth a look. Featuring race-winning additions like Servotec and a titanium stabiliser combined with a lightweight wood core, the Cloud 12 allows you to nail your turns without sacrificing weight or comfort, particularly when conditions get bumpy. Servotec is a particularly interesting addition; touted as power steering for skis, it consists of a visible rod along the front surface of the ski and elastomer under the binding. The elastomer and the rod work together, compressing before you turn and releasing while you’re turning to make the whole experience feel much more natural, lighter and less forced – just like power steering! It also helps dampen vibration from bumpy pistes, making skiing at high speeds smoother and a little more relaxing.

Added extras include a World Cup Race finish for extra speed points, as well as a strong but lightweight poplar wood core, which when combined with that titanium stabiliser creates a ski that feels light and nimble but solid and stable enough to run at high speeds on the steepest pistes.
