Lightweight Touring Ski
Backland 100

The Backland 100 is the lightest and zippiest ski from Atomic that still prioritizes downhill performance. It comes equipped with the whole range of the Backland fleet’s features. It’s more than capable of tackling nearly any snow you would want to ski on. They’re sprightly skis that conquer the mountain with agility rather than bullheaded charging ability. They also come with pre-cut climbing skins.

 

It’s worth keeping in mind that the Backland definitely rides like a lightweight ski and won’t ever ride like your favorite pair of big mountain chargers. But it’s on the more stable. If you had to find the best use for the Backland 100’s, it would be drawn-out days of alpine exploration. They offer the freedom to take a couple more laps or enjoy long days with equally ambitious descent objectives.
