With their great performance-to-weight ratio, Atomic's 2019 Backland skis are phenomenal hybrids: perfect for powder skiing and freeride ski touring, depending on what bindings you mount – and still stable on harder snow. They’re also built with Atomic's revolutionary HRZN Tech, bringing you more surface area for incredible floatation in the powder.
Inspired by the former Automatic 117, the 2019 Atomic Backland 117 freeride ski is poised to win the hearts of big mountain skiers everywhere. Featuring the same 117mm waist, Titanium Sprocket Power Boosters and Powder Rocker profile, it’s now 10% stiffer, making it ideal for aggressive skiing on deep storm days or shredding Big Mountain spines. It also features Atomic's HRZN Tech horizontal tip rocker profile, making it the most well-adapted powder ski Atomic has ever built. And yet, it still delivers on harder snow thanks to the camber underfoot. A Light Woodcore optimizes the ski’s weight without sacrificing shock absorption or stability, making them awesome Freeride Touring skis, great for reaching the best backcountry spots.
- Dimensions: 140.5 - 117 - 129.5 mm / R 19m
- Powder Rocker Profile: 30% Tip rocker / 55% Camber / 15% Tail Rocker
- Tapered Tip and Tail: Refined Five Point shaping promotes tracking in dense snow and versatile speed control.

- Lightweight and highly resistant topsheets (made from 50% rapeseed oil)
- Step Down Sidewall: Sidewall underfoot and cap at either end of the ski for the best balance of edgehold, swing weight and durability.
- 7000-series sintered bases that are fast on any snow, can stand up to anything, and are easy to maintain.
