Used in the Ski Mountaineering World Cup – and the successor to the Ultimate 65, the original ski running powerhouse.
A new slim tip that cuts like a blade through chop and crud, and with a cut-out tip for fixing skins quickly when time matters.
Two ultra-lightweight carbon inserts create stability and transfer power to the snow for unmatched performance downhill.
Made from Poplar and Caruba wood, this core keeps weight down to a minimum for a real competitive edge while climbing.
The Atomic Backland UL 65 is a flyer – the lightest, fastest ski in our new series for Endurance Touring. Successor to the Ultimate series, Backland UL is designed to give you a competitive edge on the way up and great stability downhill. We’ve optimized the overall construction: adding a slim AT Tip 2.0 that cuts like a blade through chop and crud, with a cut-out tip for fixing skins quickly during races. And inside it features Fiber Grid, a new layer that makes the ski more durable. That’s on top of the Ultra Light Woodcore which means the ski weighs in at 680g – one of the lightest ski running skis on the market. It’s also Carbon Powered with two ultra-lightweight carbon inserts, giving you stability and better power transfer to the snow on the downhill.
