Rare is the time we sacrifice peak-bagging prowess for pure power on the descent, but luckily with the Backland 95, you don’t have to. Borrowing geometry cues from Atomic’s larger powder skis and core construction secrets from its lighter-weight brethren, the Backland 95 is a big mountain ski put on a substantial diet. Or maybe a mountaineering ski that was put on a fattening diet? We're not certain. What is certain though is the Backland 95 brings substantial influence from both free-ride touring and ski mountaineering to create a ski that is capable of it all. A free-rider's spring ski, a mountaineer's powder ski, maybe your only ski. At any rate, the lightweight Poplar and Caruba core keeps things light and powerful while a full-length sidewall increases durability and edge-hold. The tip is spooned on the sides to make turning a breeze. The Backland 95 is Atomics' contender for the quiver-of-one.

  • AT Tip 2.0 is shaped to reduce hooky tips in challenging snow, allowing you to ski the way you want to no matter the conditions.
  • HRZN Tech is a lateral tip rocker (think of a spoon) that increases effective surface area in the tip for increased flotation, decreased deflection, and easy turn-initiation.
  • Carbon Backbone increases power transfer, dampens vibrations, and keeps the ski light.
  • Full sidewall increases edge-grip in steep, firm snow while reducing chatter and vibrations at high speed.
  • Ultra-Light Woodcore is the Poplar and Caruba backbone in the Backland 95.

Question from Matt
How would you compare this ski between Salomon MTN 95?
Answer from Trace Leches
Hey Matt! The Backland 95 seems more like a powerful bruiser and the MTN Explore 95 is more of a technique-based steep or powder ski. If you wanna go fast and charge, the Backland 95 is probably your ticket. If you want to go fast in soft snow and like to execute some technical turns on hard snow, the MTN Explore 95 is probably more up your alley.

Question from Pablo
What about Skins and the HRZN tech tips?
Doesn't do this tech a way for snow to slide in between skin ant tip?
Answer from jbo
Hi Pablo, good thought. The uplifted tips are off to the side and not underneath the skin material when using the race-notch. If you adapt other skins, I suppose it depends on how you cut them, but I would not leave any material way out on the red part of the tips.
