The Atomic Maverick 95Ti feels like a classic all mountain ski that can work well for a variety of skier levels, from strong intermediates right up to experts that can handle everything thrown at them.
The double titanal plate that runs through the soft wood core might make it sound like a handful to turn, but it’s far from that. In fact they are so responsive at the start of the turn that initially they feel like a light weight piste carver, but ramp up the speed and they grip and hold an edge incredibly well whilst remaining solid and stable throughout the turn.
The 95mm width under foot hits the notes for anyone looking for that one ski quiver – a seasonaire perhaps, or just someone looking to get off-piste when conditions allow but also spends a lot of time carving the groomed slopes. What they excel at is the ability to switch between different types of terrain without the rider having to massively adapt, they just seem to suck it all up.
Atomic might be one of the largest ski manufacturers on the planet, but in the Maverick they seem to have produced a ski that has its own personality, it feels crafted, solidly built. In the turns they feel light and responsive, yet ramp up the speed and they feel damp, stable and reliable.
For skiers that want one ski to do it all, maybe across a season, where you dream of powder but if it’s not there, you can have fun anyway – check out the Maverick 95Ti and don’t let the name mislead you, because in our opinion they conform to all our expectations for an all mountain ski.
