Backland 85 W + Hybrid skin
Atomic Backland 85 W is the perfect ski for alpine touring, with a specific shape for climbing and HRZN Tech for great flotation in fresh snow.
A wildly lightweight and versatile ski designed for women drawn to alpine touring, Atomic Backland 85 W is built with featherlight Ultra Light Woodcore construction, keeping it nice and light for uphill climbing. Further reducing weight, the Carbon Backbone runs the length of the ski like a backbone, providing exceptional agility and stable edge grip on the descent. Specifically shaped underfoot to allow for easier movement during climbing, especially on longer traverses, the All Mountain Rocker profile and HRZN Tech in the tip allow the ski to float in fresh snow and charge through chop and crud with less tip deflection. The cut-out notch in the tips makes transitioning Atomic Pre-Fit skins a snap.
These Atomic Hybrid Skins perfectly match the Atomic Backland / Backland W, Backland UL 85 and Backland 86 SL skis. The two sizes of skins fit 179cm and 165cm-length Backlands perfectly – and fit to all other sizes with a simple, single cut. They use 100% mohair for a strong grip and smooth glide, and feature easy-to-handle Hybrid Glue 2.0 that keeps your skins from sticking together and renews with a quick wash with a Hybrid cleaning kit.
The Backland 85 ski will work very well with a full pin binding such as the Marker Alpinist. We have also set up a number of these with the Shift or Techton bindings. Either Elaine or Colin should be in the shop most days ( unless its a blue bird powder day) If you want to talk through options.
