Atomic Redster S9 Gen S

The Atomic Redster S9 Gen S - currently the most sought-after cross-country race ski on the market.

With the Atomic Redster S9 Gen S, the ski manufacturer Atomic represents the next generation of cross-country racing skis. This new model is a milestone in skate ski technology and the new favorite of Atomic pro racers.

With this completely new XC ski, Atomic takes a new approach to the construction and design of skate skis.

The result is better handling and more power at the push-off in favor of longer and more efficient gliding. 

The Atomic Redster S9 Gen S comes with a completely redesigned profile and offers first-class kick-off efficiency. This is thanks to its sidecut and a shorter ski length, which offers an optimized stability. The new sidewall innovation “Racewall” eliminates the barrier between the ski edge and the snow.

The result is an even more direct power transmission, greater stability, and more speed when skate skiing.

In fact, with the Speedline geometry, a deeper sidecut meets more width at the ski tip and tail. That ensures for longer strides, improved control behavior and maximum cross-country skiing efficiency.

Because of the unique construction, the Redster S9 Gen S is only available with a ski length of 183cm or 72 inches. Atomic calls it the “Speedscale concept” because the shorter ski length increases your maneuverability and agility. Best of all, it doesn’t make any difference anymore how tall you are and what skill levels you have.

This could mean that the days with lots of skis of different lengths are a thing of the past.

The innovation of the Redster S9 Gen S doesn’t just sound promising in theory. In fact, the new Redster skate ski has already proven to be a complete success in practice! Simen Hegstad Krüger of Norway won a bronze medal in the shortened 50k (28.5k) due to very cold and windy conditions at the Olympic Games in Beijing.

And the Atomic ski manufacturing company has several other top results from World Cup racers in its book. By the way, in December of 2022 at the World Cup in Davos, Switzerland, Simen Krüger skied to victory on a camouflaged version of the Redster S9 Gen S.

This ski is combined with the new Prolink SHIFT-IN binding! Once you're on the trail and you know what the snow conditions are like, you can adjust the binding.

You can move the binding forward for more stability or backwards for better gliding without even stepping out. It's an advantage in variable snow conditions, but it takes practice until you feel secure to avoid a fall.

And it also remains to be seen if the other top ski manufacturers will carry over the Speedline geometry with a deeper sidecut.
