What Black Crows says about the Atris

“This is the third edition of this iconic Blackcrows ski that first appeared in 2014. For this new 2023 version, it is slightly refined, to gain even more accessibility and versatility. It is truly the everyday big mountain ski, for skiers who like powder but who want impeccable behaviour in all conditions. The lines have been revised and will distinguish it from its predecessors for the discerning eye, but the essential is inside, for a ski that achieves its objectives and delights the heart of the most demanding.”

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Atris:

Tips: 7
Shovels: 7-7.5
In Front of Toe Piece: 7.5-9
Underfoot: 10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-8.5
Tails: 8-7

Overall, the flex pattern of the new Atris feels very similar to the previous version of the Atris. The areas just outside of the bindings do feel a touch softer, while the shovels feel slightly stiffer.

Stay Tuned…

We just received the new Black Crows Atris, so keep an eye out for updates and let us know of any questions you have about this ski.

  1. I’m always skeptical when I see the words “more accessible” in print, especially without seeing anything about stability. My questions are: how stable is it in comparison to the previous iteration? How’s the edge hold? And it it made in Yugoslavia or Austria?

    • Brent,

      We will definitely address these questions in the full review and Deep Dive of the new Atris once we’ve spent enough time on it. I’ll also make it a priority to compare the 21/22 and 22/23 Atris in our Flash Review, but we need to get this ski on snow first.

      The Atris is made in Slovenia, actually.

  2. Brent, pretty sure if Nikolai schirmer doesn’t have a problem with its stability straight lining over 70 mph down icy Norwegian couloirs then I don’t think you will. .

  3. I had a half day on these at a Freeride test weekend in Engelberg at the beginning of April. I have not skied any of the previous versions so cannot compare. It was one of the skis I was looking forward to trying and have to say I loved it, very easy to pivot and quick to change direction. Having said that, the conditions were very low viz skiing one piste marker to the next on very chopped up and snow covered pistes. Only got them in a little pow but seemed to have good float, couldn’t really get any speed up given the conditions. So if I have learned anything from all the Blister reviews I have read, it’s that I can’t tell yet whether this is the ski for me but promising early signs. Look forward to the review.

      • Embarrassingly, as much of a ski nerd as I am I did not realise there were changes from the previous version and thought it was just topsheet changes – as a result I never even looked at the numbers so did not realise they were 105 rather than 108!

  4. How would you compare this to the Moment wildcat 101 or DW104? I’m looking to replaces my rustler 10’s because they are too short but i’m having a hard time deciding what to get because I like the rustlers but i just want something different!

    • Hey, Jglads – in order to help you out, we’d need some more info here. Please fill out the form for snowsports personalized gear recommendations in the Blister Clubhouse, and we’ll be happy to help you out.

  5. Really interested if there’s improvement in on piste performance. I found the older version fun off piste but to left me wanting more grip on the hard stuff. Would love to hear comparison vs the Hotshot. Thanks.
