Intially founded in 1955 by entrepreneur Alois Rohrmoser, Atomic had become a one-stop supplier for skis, bindings, boots and poles by 1989 and today is one of the strongest players in the winter sports market.
Atomic ski boots have a robust reputation for providing a healthy fit/performance balance, delivering all-day comfort with a positive foothold, plus scope for skier development for those aspiring to the next level.
We start by finding the right size:
Atomic bases its boot-fitting ethos on beginning with the best possible fit. At Profeet we measure your feet accurately: length, width and volume, and assess any anomalies such as bunions, bone spurs and hammer toes etc… which may affect the fit of your boots and potentially cause discomfort. Then we select the correct boot shell size for your foot.
The Atomic range is designed to address 3 forefoot widths:
- Ultra = narrow (last less than 98mm)
- Prime = medium (last around 100mm)
- Magma = wide (last of 102mm and above)
We then select the right boot for your skiing style and ability
Ski boot construction varies with different densities of material used to create a boot to suit your ability. A beginner skier requires a softer flex, a more aggressive or advanced skier may suit a stiffer boot – though this is not always the case – strength, anatomy, fitness level and even age play a role in flex selection.
The Flex Index describes the overall stiffness and stability of the ski boot
