Atomic Backland 85 is a perfectly balanced touring ski for all skiers, with a specific shape for hiking and HRZN Tech in the tip for great floatation in powder.
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.
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.
If you want a balanced touring ski for all your touring days then Atomic Backland 85 is your stick – light for climbing, floaty in powder but also strong and edgy enough for getting you there and back. Inside you’ve got an Ultra Light Woodcore made from poplar/caruba and the ski is shaped for an easy hike and safe grip, especially on longer traverses. Then you’ve got HRZN Tech Tips with 10% more surface area for awesome floatation in powder plus less tip deflection and better tracking through chop. Extra stability comes from carbon fibers along the ski – allowing you to lay down the power on and off piste. We also offer pre-fit skins to match.
