Skier's Choice Draft Picks
Round 3 – Park Selection, Pick 11Atomic’s old stalwart of a park ski, the Punx, features a wood core, traditional camber, symmetrical sidecut and slanted sidewalls. This is a durable ski that carves well in both directions and features no gimmicks. I don’t look for rocker or alternate sidecuts in my park ski, just something solid to get me from groomer to lip to landing and back to the lift. But my favorite part about the Atomic Punx is the name, which always puts the Van Halen song of the same title into my head, ensuring a good session.
|Description||It's no coincidence that Jossi Wells, Andreas Håtveit and Elias Ambühl have all rocked the X Games and Dew Tour with the Punx. Because every detail of this award-winning ski is tailored towards one goal: mastering difficult tricks in both the biggest half pipes in the world and the most challenging slope and big air courses ever built. The core strengths of the Punx include a 100% symmetrical shape, which maximizes ski control – whether performing a regular or switch landing – , its low weight, which makes fast spins easier, and a high-performance wood core and “Resist Edge”, which makes the ski super strong and durable. The Punx is the top ski for riders in Pipe and Park who enjoy using competition level products put through the ringer in the most competitive venues on the planet.|
