Delivering a damp, powerful, and stable ride, the old Backland 95 was a fan favorite for many years. Wanting to build upon this proven platform, Atomic went to work and changed the rocker profile and raw material sourcing for this latest iteration. Keeping the same turn radius but increasing the rocker to 30% (compared to 15% in years past), the Backland 95 has gained flotation in powder and maneuverability in tight spaces without too much compromise on stability. The HRZN 3D tip is purposefully broad, helping the tip float to the top in deep snow while the thin, perforated structure reduces swing weight, making the Backland 95 easier to flick around when needed. The Dura Cap sidewall provides enhanced durability as well as creates exceptional power transfer to the edge of the ski, helping with edge grip in steep and icy places. Conscious of the climate crisis we are in, Atomic has created the Backland 95 with a lower-impact design, cutting carbon emissions up to 30% for a single ski. For a versatile hard charging quiver of one, or as part of a quiver, the Backland 95 is ready for it all.
- Carbon backbone gives the ski a solid flex without adding unnecessary weight.
- Ultra Light Woodcore is light and durable.
- Lower-impact design utilizes less impactful materials.
- Dura Cap sidewall provides excellent power transfer to the edges of the ski.
- HRZN 3D tip is redesigned to provide better flotation and maneuverability.
- All Terrain profile provides versatility for a broad array of conditions.
