Atomic Backland 85 UL features the World-Cup proven construction of our ski-running UL 65 – in an 85 mid-waist ski that’s ideal for lightweight alpine touring. It’s our widest UL so it’s nice and floaty. The All Mountain rocker and HRZN Tech in the tip then makes skiing through chop and crud so much easier. And it’s still really light for climbing with an Ultra Light Woodcore and carbon inserts. The cut-out notch in the tips also makes fixing our prefit skins quick and easy.
