The new Atomic Backland 85 UL is 10% ligher than its predecessor and features HRZN tech – our widest Backland UL ski and strongest downhill performer.
Two ultra-lightweight carbon inserts create stability and transfer power to the snow for unmatched performance downhill.
Incredibly lightweight Poplar and Caruba wood keeps Backland’s weight down but without compromising downhill performance.
Full sidewall under the binding, from base to top sheet, for controlled power transmission and great edge grip.
HRZN Tech adds 10% more surface area at your ski tips. For awesome floatation in powder plus less tip deflection and better tracking through chop.
Atomic Backland 85 UL features the World-Cup proven construction of our ski-running UL 65 – in an 85 mid-waist ski that’s ideal for lightweight alpine touring. It’s our widest UL so it’s nice and floaty. The All Mountain rocker and HRZN Tech in the tip then makes skiing through chop and crud so much easier. And it’s still really light for climbing with an Ultra Light Woodcore and carbon inserts. The cut-out notch in the tips also makes fixing our prefit skins quick and easy.
