Skiing has been around for ages and for the most part the core technology has remained the same; skis, ski boots and 2 polls. Atomic’s D2 Vario skis bring a new and unusual approach to the sport. Embedded in the center tip of the ski is a flexible rubber. As pressure is applied to the skis the rubber expands making for a wider surface and ultimately better control in turns, at least that’s what their marketing says. I’d love to see these things tested by a hardcore, 60MPH+ downhill skier and see what they think.
The Atomic D2 Vario Skis are available now for $1,660
