Atomic Backland UL skis are for the growing world of Endurance Touring and ski running. They’re ultra light to give you an edge on the way up then stable for the downhill section, while their HRZN Tech tips make them unbeatable for tracking through chop.
With the 2020 Backland UL 78 model, Atomic has optimized the overall construction of the Backland UL 78, adding a new slim AT Tip 2.0 that cuts like a blade through chop and crud, with a cut-out tip for fixing skins quickly during races. The All-Mountain Rocker helps as well. This model has an Ultra Light Woodcore and weighs only 980g per ski for a competitive edge on the climb. It’s also Carbon Powered with two ultra-lightweight carbon inserts for stability and better power transfer to the snow on the way down. Awesomely fast and light uphill, this is a mountaineering alpine touring ski with the kind of downhill performance that will have you hunting out lines you used to think were too big and too far.
This brand new pair of 2020 Atomic Backland 78 UL skis comes paired with a brand new, pre-cut pair of 2020 Atomic Backland Hybrid 78 climbing skins. The Hybrid 78 skins are made from a 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. They come perfectly sized to fit these skis, right out of the box. Now all you need is bindings!
