The ideal balance of uphill climbing and downhill performance, Atomic Backland 86 SL features HRZN Tech for great flotation and smooth, stable handling.
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.
Incredibly lightweight, highly versatile and designed for alpine touring, Atomic Backland 86 SL is a wider ski built with superlight SL Fiberglass, Ultra Light Woodcore construction and a Carbon Backbone to reduce overall weight for efficient uphill climbing. The result of this material combination is a ski that is super lightweight, but extremely smooth and stable on the descent. 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. And the cut-out notch in the tips makes for quick transitioning of pre-fit Atomic skins.
