Product details

Atomic Backland 85 is the perfect all-round ski for touring, with a specific shape for climbing and HRZN Tech for great flotation in fresh snow.

A wildly lightweight and versatile ski designed for all-round ski touring, Backland 85 is built with Atomic’s Ultra Light Woodcore construction, keeping it nice and light for uphill climbing. Further reducing weight, the Carbon Backbone runs the length of the ski like a backbone, providing exceptional agility and stable edge grip on the descent. Specifically shaped underfoot to allow for easier travel when climbing, especially on longer traverses, 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. The cut-out notch in the tips makes transitioning the pre-fit skins from Atomic a snap.

A well-balanced touring ski from the Atomic brand that is phenomenally strong and edgy. Thanks to the light wood core and the energetic carbon backbone, the weight gets a spot reduction without sacrificing downhill performance. As a narrow ski, the 85mm under foot and 172cm in length serves perfectly for a front side-oriented skier, but there is enough gradual rise in the rocker with HRZN tech for added surface area to lift a skier up and over any fresh layers they might encounter on their way down.

Recommended for anyone who wants to shed the weight without losing any performance! The 17m turn radius is ideal for hitting tight couloir chutes, trees, and moguls. This one combines Atomic's WC race-inspired construction of one of their narrower winning models with a more versatile 85mm waist that is super suitable for tracking.
