At just over 1000g (157cm) the Atomic Backland 78 is an uphiller's dream. The paulowina-poplar core strengthened with carbon manages to create a stiff mountaineering-oriented ski that skis surprisingly damp. The Backland series has grown better each year, and at a competitive price point, won't break the bank as you gear up for your ski adventures.
A rocker tip keeps you afloat in fresh snow and traditional camber underfoot gives you the power moving into and out of turns you need, and with a 15m turning radius, the turns will come quick and powerfully! Stability and edge control on smooth groomers, spring corn, or in deeper variable conditions is a must when you don't know what you'll find out there. We all need a ski we can depend on, that's strong enough to hold us through weird snow, awesome snow, and everything in between.
At 78mm underfoot and close to 1000g, this ski is often used for racing, as the downhill skiing is just as important to the race as the uphill skinning! Having a 78mm ski instead of the typical 65mm race ski is a huge advantage for your descents which can be made safely and quickly with more control.
Pair it with the Atomic Backland binding and custom Atomic skins for the lightest set-up short of certified racing gear! The 78's are a go-to all season long, well into spring when your missions take you off piste and exploring steeper terrain.
