Atomic releases limited edition and signed Eddie the Eagle ARC ski

To coincide with the new film, Eddie The Eagle starring Hugh Jackman, Atomic has released a limited edition ARC ski signed by Eddie himself.

Atomic initially sponsored Eddie for the Calgary Olympics in 1988 and he continues to use Atomic products to this very day.  To celebrate Eddie’s sportsmanship, bravery and tenacity, Atomic has custom designed a ski to be consistent looking to the ones that Eddie started on in the ‘80s.

These skis are limited to only six examples, of which one pair will be presented to Eddie himself as thanks for his hard work promoting snowsports in the UK to all ages. Together with chosen partners, Atomic will be making five pairs available to the general public through competitions.

The ski itself is based on Atomic’s new piste ski, the Redster XTi – a powerful fusion of Slalom and Giant Slalom ski featuring Full Sidewall, Race Rocker and Power Woodcore that adds a ton of stability and dampens vibrations at speed. This combination of technology, along with the titanium insert, gives the ski the well-known Atomic edge grip and versatility to conquer any demanding piste in any weather condition.

Jason Summerfield, who looks after Atomic in the UK;

Atomic and Eddie the Eagle have a longstanding, close relationship and we have worked together on several charity functions so we felt it was only fitting to celebrate the launch of the film and Eddie’s endless support of UK Snowsports with a very special, limited edition ski.
