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

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
