Atomic Backland 86 SL is the perfect all-round ski for touring, super lightweight for climbing and HRZN Tech for great flotation in fresh snow.
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.
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.
A super light and versatile ski designed for alpine touring, Atomic Backland 86 SL is built with our Ultra Light Woodcore construction, keeping it nice and light for easier uphill climbing. Further reducing weight, the Carbon Backbone runs the length of the ski like a backbone, providing exceptional agility and stable edge grip on the descent. The construction and overall weight of this ski sits between Backland UL and regular Backland skis. Specifically shaped underfoot to allow for easier travel when climbing, especially on longer traverses, the All Mountain Rocker profile and HRZN Tech in the tip allow the ski to float in fresh snow and charge through chop and crud with less tip deflection. The cut-out notch in the tips makes transitioning our pre-fit skins a snap.
