Dropping a midseason release in 2012-13, Atomic made waves with this brainchild of Jossi Wells. “This ski is incredible. So responsive and fun,” said one tester. With subtle rocker in the tip and tail as well as traditional camber underfoot, the ski is designed to have a catch-free feel. “Love the light swing weight and how playful this thing is,” said another. Step-down sidewall construction and a wood core translate to durability and shock absorption. Couple that with a low price point, and the Infamous earns itself an Editor’s Pick in its first year on the market.
