The Atomic Maverick 86 C are the narrowest waisted skis in the Atomic’s Maverick line up. With an 86-millimeter waist, you get a nice combination of carving performance and all-mountain versatility. Making the ski even lighter and more approachable is the combination of Atomic’s Duracap construction, its Carbon backbone (hence the “C” in its name) and its HRZN technology in the tips. The Maverick 86 C makes a great ski for bumps and trees and has a very approachable flex. It can be skied at a wide variety of speeds as well as do a variety of turn shapes and styles, so it appeals to a wide variety of skier ability levels, from intermediate, to advanced and expert skiers. If you are in the market for a versatile, front-side ski that is not to demanding and does not require for you to be on your “A” game all the time, then the Atomic Maverick 86 C will be a match made in heaven for you.
