Successor to the Automatic 109, the mid-waist Backland FR that charges in deep snow but also works on hard pack.
Affinity features our lightweight poplar woodcore that optimizes the ski’s weight without sacrificing any of its shock absorption or stability.
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.
Blends an ABS sidewall construction with a revolutionary across-the-ski (horizontal) rocker to add 10% more surface area in tip and tail. This delivers less tip deflection and better tracking through chop and crud, without adding any swing weight – making it the best design yet for powder.
The Atomic Backland FR 109 ski delivers the very best in Big Mountain powder performance. It’s part of our new Backland FR range of freeride powder chargers – successors to the massively popular Automatic series. At 109 mm with pronounced camber under foot, plus a Carbon Backbone and Powder Rocker that’s big in the tip and smaller in the tail, this is our mid-waist model. It now also features revolutionary HRZN Tech in the tip for more surface area and even better floatation, so it’s built for charging in deep snow and chop with total confidence. That said, with a Step Down Sidewall 2.0 it’s also smooth and stable even on harder terrain. Mount some Tracker bindings and MultiFit Powder Rocker Skins on this low-weight powder performer and it works great as a Freeride Touring ski, too.
