Atomic Redster G9 + X 12 TL 2019

Reviewed by PROSKILAB

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

The Redster G9 from Atomic is definitely one of the best skis on the market in the "Giant Slalom" category of race-inspired skis designed for a non-racing public.

"Consistent and reassuring", almost "perfect", it shines in this category in virtually every respect. The professional reviewers noted in particular its "very reassuring" character, with incisive turn entry and fantastic stability at high speed. Efficient and docile, you'll feel really confident whatever the conditions.

The only criticism concerns the tail, which was judged somewhat soft. There was a lack of energy in turn release for this category, making the exit more technically demanding. That's why it needs good positioning with forward pressure.

The Redster G9 is a good ski that will satisfy all adrenalin-seeking fans of high-powered long turns.


Review: Pros

  • Consistent
  • Sound behavior, reassuring
  • Good overall performance
  • Initiation, dynamic turn entry

Review: Cons

  • Soft tail
  • Lacks rebound
  • Turn exit requires some technical prowess
  • Needs good positioning

Manufacturer's remarks

Featuring the latest Servotec race innovation for more precise steering and irreproachable stability at high speed, the Atomic Redster G9 is our up-market giant slalom ski, designed to link fast and powerful long turns on the groomed trails. The Servotec technology maximizes agility for ultra-fast switching and maximum stability at high speed.
Its reduced sidecuts are associated with maximum stability at high speed, but thanks to the Servotec technology, you have the impression of riding a tool with a more pronounced profile.
The full sidewall construction runs the whole length of the ski for more precise turns.
