The Atomic Maverick 86 C Skis are a solid upgrade to the long-running Vantage line, with subtle changes designed to improve the versatility of the skis in "North American" conditions (translation: not just perfect groomers). Innovations like Atomic's Flow Profile, tuned OMatic cores, and HRZN tips improve the ski's ability to float in powder and make short radius turns in difficult terrain without lowering the fun quotient on the groomed. The Maverick 86 C is the perfect choice for the front side skier who wants to expand their playground, and wants one ski to do it all.
All Mountain Rocker – 20% Tip Rocker / 70% Camber / 10% Tail Rocker
Flow Profile – Flow Profile blends the perfect amount of rocker and camber for optimal effective edge contact during every turn. Utilizing the latest generation of HRZN Tech Tip, Flow Profile delivers the ideal combination of camber, shovel taper, and tip rocker to create a ski that hooks up on hardpack as well as floats in fresh snow.
HRZN Tech Tip – HRZN Tech adds 10% more surface area at your ski tips. For awesome flotation in powder plus less tip deflection and better tracking through chop.
OMatic Construction – The ultimate balance of stiffness and flex throughout the length of the ski. Precision milled poplar wood, lightweight fiberglass, and titanal layer or carbon insets. OMatic delivers effortless performance, balance, and stability from tip to tail.
Carbon Backbone – An ultra-lightweight carbon insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilizing backbone. This provides exceptional agility and edge hold with no extra weight.
Dura Cap Sidewall – Sidewall for power transmission combined with a small cap for durability.
Atomic Base – High-density sintered bases that are fast in a variety of snow conditions and accept wax readily
Atomic Edges – Atomic edges are made from steel five times more wear resistant than standard steel, for strength and perfect grip.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
