The “72” refers to the waist width, which is naturally thinner than similar 82 models in Atomic’s double deck product line. Between the individual decks lies an elastomer layer which reacts to pressure. When the skis are stressed the elastomer stiffens, therefore increasing stability while giving the rider better overall control on the slopes. This technology allows for increased maneuverability at low speeds, and can assist with acceleration out of turns. As the Sport model, these skis have added flair in the form of a styled black and red design.
