A rockered all-mountain ski built for everything the mountain inspires you to do.
The Atomic Ritual Ski delivers an energetic, rockered ride for all-mountain skiers with more than a little experience under their belt. It has a powerful flex that holds fast through choppy conditions, a mid-fat waist for sticking bombed-out landings, and a shape that's agile enough to take on tight chutes or wide-open powder fields at full throttle.
Designed with an All Mountain Rocker profile that provides versatile performance both on and off trail, the Ritual has a rockered tip and tail to bust through crud, float atop pow, and carve sweet, buttery turns through soft snow. Thanks to its regular camber underfoot, the Ritual grips hardpack and tight, techy terrain like a beast for a super-smooth ride down any terrain. Atomic engineers also gave this sweet all-mountain rockered ski a bigger radius at the tip and a smaller radius at the tail for easy turn initiation and optimum grip out of turns.
Equipped with Step Down Sidewall construction for solid strength and durability, you can count on this bad boy to provide you with seasons of wicked fun riding. A wood core features a metal laminate that runs the entire length of the ski like a backbone to supply greater stability and strength at high speeds.

Great all mountain ski
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I bought these skis after demo-ing the Soul 7 and the JJ. I actually think the Ritual is a much better all mountain ski. While the Soul 7 and JJ may be a tiny bit better in deeper, untouched powder (the 103mm waist is still plenty of width if you know what you are doing), the Ritual is, in my opinion, better everywhere else including skied out powder, crud, etc. Perhaps the biggest surprise is how good a ski it is on groomed runs as you make your way to the fun stuff.
I am 5'11' and weigh 160lbs. While it does not have a lot of rocker, I would agree with other reviewer that is does ski a bit shorter than you would expect (alternatively it is a very nimble responsive ski). I have the 182's but would advise someone to go for the 190's if you are going to be mostly in the side or backcountry.

I'm 5'11" and weigh around 170 lbs. I like to ski steep technical lines. The 182's felt ok if just a little short. Dou you think the 190's would be to much ski?
I think the 182cm would be a good length for you purely based on your build. However, if you favor steep riding, want something with a little extra power, and have found the 182 to feel a touch short in the past, the 190 very well could be the answer. Everyone on here talks about the technical specifications of gear ad nauseum myself included) but we all know there is not substitute for experience. If the 182 felt short when you demoed them, I would feel confident jumping on the 190.
