THE VERDICT

Built with the kind of World Cup winning technology that has made Atomic a leader in alpine racing, the Redster DD XT is one fierce, hard snow arcing monster of a machine. Bottomline: If you don't have a real race background, you can't handle this ski.

FULL REVIEW

The Redster DD XT is built on the same chassis, and with much of the same World Cup winning technology as Atomic’s top end race skis. With unbreakable edge hold, no speed limit, and confidence-inspiring dampness that dares you to lay over hard arcs on everything from buffed cordurory to boilerplate ice, this is an exciting ski.

If you don’t have a real race background, or are a superior carve technician, this is too much ski for you. Look for something a little more forgiving and silky smooth, such as the Blizzard Quattro RS. Otherwise, start you engines here!
