Not really...you could find something much better, IMO
Take em on the groomers, they feel stable to rail on em, pick your feet up over rollers, pop em off little airs in the chop, bulldoze some steeps, and enjoy one of the lightest most radical skis out there.
Atomic Coax Ski with Todd Ligare
Backcountry.com athlete Todd Ligare talks about one of his favorite all mountain skis, the Atomic Coax!
Good all mountain ski
Pretty nice all mountain ski. Good in most conditions. Seemed to be a little hesitant in mixed snow.
I have been more and more stoked with rockered skis, but was satisfied with the performance of the Coax. if your looking for a traditional shaped mid fat, this ski is great, it has a bit of early rise once the flex is engaged, so it has some shmeer qualities. I tested this ski on a corn day with good results. carved nice, and had an easy feel. Its not going to float like a super fat in the pow, but it seems to remains responsive in all conditions.
My Stats135lbs5'9''Expert Skier (competing in a freeride comp)This was the only ski without rocker I demoed during my demo day, it was 183cm, and the conditions weren't the best early in the morning, but I still didn't like the Coax. It was horrible at short turns if they were possible, not stable, very unforgiving and inspired a lack of confidence. I didn't want to push it on this ski. They did ok in larger turns. Also the ski doesn't float very well. For this ski, I skied my test runs in opposite order. Two thumbs down.
