With a specific shape for touring and HRZN Tech technology in the tip for excellent flotation in powder, the Atomic Backland 85 W is a perfectly balanced touring ski, intended for all female skiers.
A fast-and-light setup that still has some chops on hard snow and steeps, the Atomic Backland 85 W Skis + Hybrid 85 Skins are the perfect choice for that week long traverse or spring volcano tour. At 1060 grams, the Backland 85 definitely favors efficiency on the uphill, but Atomic knows how to retain downhill performance in their light skis and does so by keeping the torsional stiffness high and adding a carbon backbone for structural integrity. Pre-cut, 100% mohair Hybrid climbing skins are included, so when you're ready to point it in both directions, put this one in your cart.
