Atomic Backland Expert W Touring Boot (closeout)

Atomic re-designed their Backland boots for 2020 and we are impressed. With a focus on ease for the uphill, performance on the downhill, and overall simplicity, we are impressed with Atomic's upgrade of a classic boot. 

Frictionless pivot and over 70 degrees of articulation mean this boot walks almost as well as your high top hiking boot. And at 1160 grams (size 26.5) it might just be lighter than your hiking boot as well. Combine this with a customizable and breathable liner, and your feet will be in heaven as the vertical feet pass you by effortlessly on the skin track. Prolite construction keeps the boot light without sacrificing any power for the downhill portion of your ski tour. A higher boot cuff provides greater leverage and control over your skis as well. A new BOA system secures your foot evenly in the boot while the all new Free/Lock 4.0 system means that a single lever is all that is required to transition from walk to ski mode.

Is renting right for you?

Rentals are a great way to lower the cost for your first time trying the sport and narrowing down what you are looking for. We rent both super light fitness setups for resort uphilling as well as all mountain skis better for backcountry and soft snow.

There are a few limitations of renting. Most importantly the demands on your feet for walking uphill in a hard plastic require a level of boot fitting and customization that is impossible to get in rental boot. This could set you up for some discomfort. There are too many models of skis out there to try them all, so demoing to buy has become impossible. In the end, once you are hooked for the sport, working with our backcountry experts will be the most efficient and least expensive way to get dialed in the perfect setup for you.
