Pros:Fast, easy to carve, good edges

Cons:Little bit stiff

The Bottom Line: I recommend these skis to the advanced skier that skies more than 15 days a year. They're worth the price, but too much for the once a year skier.


I was lucky enough to win a pair of 200cm Atomic Beta Cruise 9.22's at the Club in Vail. These are expensive skis, for serious skiers. I had never before skiied Atomic's, but they came well recommended. These ski's are also only one step down from the 10.22 ski's that many professionals carve on in major events.

The 9.22's are parabolics, and are wider than the average parabolic ski. There is a huge difference between the parabolic ski, and the traditional downhill straight ski. The parabolic is skinny in the center, with flared ends. This causes the ski to make a circular contact area with the snow due to the skier's weight bending the ski into the mountain. This design is what makes parabolics very easy to turn. This is the first pair of parabolics that I have owned, but I have tried some K2's, and I like the Atomics much better. They don't take any effort to carve, and it is very easy to keep the ski under you.

I am 6 feet tall, and I have skied for almost 20 years now, so I use ski's in the 200cm range. I would suggest however, trying out a shorter ski than normal with the Atomics. The longer the ski, the faster, and more stable the ski. However the Atomic is a speed demon by heart, and extremely stable.

I would recommend using a suspension type binding with these skis. The are very rigid, and a good binding will absorb some of the mountain. I am using the Tyrolia Power Select Freeride SL 110 bindings. They have an adjustment in the front which actually alters the curvature of the ski ever so slightly. I have been very happy with the combo so far.
