Atomic Blackeye Ti (2013/2014) ReviewSeptember 5, 2013
- Not as versatile
- Off-piste performance
Atomic's Blackeye Ti is a reliable, predictable carving ski for everyone from intermediate to advanced skiers who want a worry-free day.
A ski for lift-served skiers who prefer groomed and hardpacked to packed powder conditions.
Atomic’s Blackeye Ti is a reliable, predictable ski that feels right at home as soon as you start to ski it. A relaxed carving ski for everyone from intermediate to advanced skiers who want a worry-free day (especially if they’re weekend warriors), these boards took no learning curve to get used to, and provided all of our testers with an enjoyable experience.
If the Blackeye has a drawback, it is the lack of versatility and predilection to make the same damp, mid-radius turn no matter where you take it. Overpowered by crud and anything off-piste due to a lack of float and liveliness, it does provide for a wonderfully forgiving feel for motoring under the lifts. Hardcore edgers will be better served by Atomic’s great Redster collection, or some of the other more expert aimed skis in this test.
