Atomic Backland FR 117

This top model has a 117 mm waist, Carbon Backbone and Powder Rocker profile. It also now features revolutionary HRZN Tech in the tip for more surface area and even better floatation.

It’s stiff enough for aggressive skiing on deep storm days or shredding big mountain spines. It delivers on harder snow thanks to the camber underfoot. And in comparison to Automatic, we’ve made Backland FR even lighter without sacrificing stability, thanks to a Light Woodcore. This also makes them awesome freeride touring skis: great for reaching those best spots – boot packing or skinning.
