The mid-waist Backland FR that charges in deep snow but also works on hard pack.
The Atomic Tracker 13 MNC ski binding is built for the backcountry, with awesome downhill performance and ultra-direct feedback. Compared with the Tracker 16 it’s a little lighter and has lower release values (DIN 5-13) but it’s identical in construction so it’s still MNC certified and compatible with all boot sole norms: DIN, Touring and Walk To Ride (WTR). The Low Profile Chassis features a low stand height for greater stability and enhanced terrain feedback, and the Oversized Platform enables maximum power transmission and responsiveness, giving you more precise turns even at higher speeds. Thanks to the Hike & Ride Switch, you no longer have to take your skis off when switching between hiking and riding modes – all it takes is a simple push with your ski pole.
The Atomic Warden 13 MNC is a whole new generation of ski binding. Inspired by the backcountry, it has the same Oversized Platform and toe as our Tracker binding, but is the first binding to be TÜV approved for all three types of soles: DIN, Touring and Walk To Ride (WTR). That means it fits every normed boot in the market. It’s 30% wider than comparable bindings, so works particularly well with progressive, wider skis like our Vantage, Century and Automatic. It also features self-retracting Freeski Brakes that eliminate hang-ups on switch landings. The Warden combines the strength and precision you need on-piste with the natural flex, strong dampening and smooth, progressive power transfer required when skiing all over the mountain and through any snow.
The Atomic Backland FR 109 ski delivers the very best in Big Mountain powder performance. It’s the mid-wait model in our Backland FR range of freeride powder chargers – with a 109mm waist, pronounced camber under foot plus a Carbon Backbone and Powder Rocker that’s big in the tip and smaller in the tail. It 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 Rocker Skins on this low-weight powder performer and it works great as a Freeride Touring ski, too.
