Our most playful, floatiest, easiest to handle ski yet! The Line Sick Day 125 surfs powder while still maintaining plenty of control on firm snow. There’s no friends on a powder day except for these two skis on your feet. Its innovative light weight construction makes it one of the lightest alpine skis on the market while proudly maintaining 100% of it’s downhill performance and, most important: Durability. Bomb proof in the bomb holes!

Whether you’re hiking the backcountry or skiing in-bounds, lighter skis saves your energy for more fun taking more runs. The wider tip & narrower tail in addition to the Early Rise keeps you effortlessly floating in the powder, with one-of-a-kind intuitive steering like your surfing a long board into the sunset. 


The deep sidecut and reliable flex pattern provides impressive grip on firm snow previously not possible. Jump on these boards and you’ll be carving, floating, slashing, smearing, spraying your way to the best sick day of your life.

The next generation of backcountry bindings, the Atomic Tracker 16 provides the power, precision and on-snow feel of a high-performance freeride binding, with the benefits of a very convenient hiking system.

Atomic's engineers and athletes wanted to create an Alpine Touring binding that sat low to the ski, could handle being mounted on a wide ski and was not only easy to switch between ski and tour but was also very secure.
