The Backland 107 is Atomic's answer to the question: What's a good lightweight touring ski that can still provide aggressive downhill performance? This ski is designed for those who put in distance and elevation on the uphill, and push their equipment on the way down. Stiff, strong, and snappy, this ski is at home on the steep and deep, as well as when put on edge and driven hard and fast.
- Powder Rocker – With a profile of 20% tip rocker, 70% camber, and 10% tail rocker, this ski is shaped to handle both soft and firm snow.
- HRZN Tech Tip – This tip technology provides an extra 10% of surface area to the nose of the ski, providing more float in powder and tracking ability through variable snow.
- Carbon Backbone – This "backbone" of carbon running the length of the ski helps provide rigidity and stability without adding excess weight to the overall construction.

These skis are extremely fun, intuitive, and versatile! Atomic combined a light wood core with two carbon tubes running the length of the ski to make for an incredibly lightweight ski that tours like a dream but handles resort chop better than many heavier skis. They carve extremely well on groomers for their width. Yet, their asymmetrical construction and rocker profile make them a dream in pow.
These are a great choice for anyone blurring the line between a resort-specific ski and a backcountry-oriented ski. This thing can tour great and float well. At 107mm it's a ski for any condition. Coming in at 1500g with a wood core and carbon backbone, this has great snap and pop in the turns while the HRZN Tech in the tip provides a ton of float. With more of a directional feel to it due to the flatter tail, this ski has a little more performance in the turns and can definitely be ridden by advanced/expert skiers.
The Backland 107 is alight ski, and thanks to its wood/carbon core construction, it still offers a more than solid downhill performance. It offers very good uphill performance at around 1650g per ski, and thanks to its shallow rocker profile and unique flex pattern (softer shovels that quickly become stiff), there isn't any sacrifice on their downhill performance. They certainly are not the lightest touring skis out there, but they are one of the most well balanced.
