Atomic Affinity Storm (2013/2014) ReviewOctober 1, 2013
- Easy swingweight for short or long radius turns
- Binding system designed to fit a woman’s body mechanics
- You’ll get bucked into the back seat at high speeds
A great choice for intermediate to expert women who spend 60 percent of their time on hardpack and 40 percent off-piste.
The widest ski in Atomic’s frontside-oriented Affinity collection, the Affinity Storm, which comes with a pre-installed binding system, is an intermediate to expert ski that’s made for groomers but handles all-mountain terrain, too.
Atomic’s Affinity Storm handled steeps and crud with unexpected confidence, but this ski really excelled on hardpack, where it truly belongs.
You’ll get through a little bit of powder OK thanks to a slightly rockered tip, but keep this ski benched on big storm days.
Sure, it’s got a narrow waist meant for groomers, but this ski dominated in crud and chopped snow, too.
Atomic’s Affinity Storm comes in three, well-suited lengths: 151, 159, 167.
