Description

The Backland 78 touring skis are one of the best price-performing touring skis in Atomic's Backland lineup. It is very slender with its 78 underfoot layout, this lightweight ski (1200g at 170cm) has more of a focus on the uphill. This would make an awesome fitness/ mountaineering ski with its low swing weight and its directional shape.

Atomic didn't skimp on the Backland 78's downhill performance either. Featuring a dura cap sidewall, HRZ tip technology to let you plane through fresh snow, and an ultra-light wood core construction that gives you a ski that very easy to maneuver (17.5m turn radius at 17cm). The Backland 78 has all the best features from the Backland series at a low price point.

Huge fan of this ski. I mounted this bad boy up with light binding and this became my go to training ski for fitness. It's so fast and light, yet skis surprisingly well. I'm a huge fan of the shape and general performance. Typically with small skis, you're conceding that you'll be "surviving on the down". The Backland 78 gives me much more confidence than expected and I actually enjoy skiing down having raced up the hill so fast!
