A lightweight, powder-ready ski that’s a favorite of freeride pros for big-mountain spine lines and free-ride touring.
An ultra-lightweight carbon insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilizing backbone. This provides exceptional agility and edge hold with no extra weight.
Incredibly lightweight Poplar and Caruba wood keeps Backland’s weight down but without compromising downhill performance.
Runs across the full length of the ski for precise steering, ideal for high-performing race and piste skis.
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 117 is the widest model in our Backland range, created with freeride pros like Sage Cattabriga-Alosa. Sporting both Carbon Backbone and Powder Rocker profile, it also features revolutionary HRZN Tech in the tip for more surface area and even better floatation. It’s wide enough for aggressive skiing on deep storm days or shredding big mountain spines. It also delivers on harder snow thanks to the camber underfoot. And we’ve made Backland light without sacrificing stability thanks to an Ultra Light Woodcore. This makes them a perfect freeride touring ski, great for accessing untouched terrain, whether you’re skinning or carrying them on your back for a boot pack.
