The competition X Games ski, Atomic Punx 7 is leading the charge in park and pipe.
The Atomic Warden MNC 13 binding combines the strength and precision you need on piste with the smooth progressive power transfer you need in deeper snow. MNC stands for Multi Norm Certified, which means it works with all types of soles – DIN, Touring and Walk To Ride (WTR) – and fits every normed boot in the market. So it’s ideal if you want one binding for your all-mountain and backcountry skiing. It has an Oversized Platform and U-Power Toe – a super-wide platform that provides maximum lateral power transmission plus precise steering, natural flex and strong dampening. It’s also 30% wider than comparable bindings so works well with progressive wider skis like Vantage. Finally it has self-retracting Freeski Brakes that eliminate hang-ups on switch landings.
Put through the wringer at the X Games, this ski has been given the personal seal of approval by no less than Andreas Håtveit and Gus Kenworthy. They were particularly stoked by the catch-free take offs thanks to the slight early rise Park Rocker in tip and tail. Add an Atomic Full Sidewall and hard ash and light poplar woodcore – you’ve got a stomping combination of flex, durability and shock absorption.
