A lightweight, powder-ready ski that’s a favorite of freeride pros for big-mountain spine lines and free-ride touring.
The Atomic Warden MNC 13 binding combines the strength and precision you need on piste with the smooth progressive power transfer you need in deeper snow. MNC stands for Multi Norm Certified, which means it works with all types of soles – DIN, Touring and Walk To Ride (WTR) – and fits every normed boot in the market. So it’s ideal if you want one binding for your all-mountain and backcountry skiing. It has an Oversized Platform and U-Power Toe – a super-wide platform that provides maximum lateral power transmission plus precise steering, natural flex and strong dampening. It’s also 30% wider than comparable bindings so works well with progressive wider skis like Vantage. Finally it has self-retracting Freeski Brakes that eliminate hang-ups on switch landings.
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.
Made from Poplar wood, this core optimizes the ski's weight without sacrificing any shock absorption or stability.
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 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.
