The Atomic Backland FR is a new ski pole to go with our new Backland FR skis. And like our skis, it’s been designed and developed with the help of freeski legend Chris Benchetler. A good freeride pole needs to keep you light, nimble and focussed on the job. So we’ve made it from lightweight aluminium alloy, we’ve given it a Bike Grip that won’t slip and an 85mm Powder Basket for better floatation. But in the backcountry a good pole needs to do more than help you ski well, so we’ve built-in a handy ski-binding screwdriver for adjustments and repairs on the move. The pole also has a Carbide tip to protect against rocks and trees, and you can adjust it from 110cm to 130cm.
