Notice: Atomic released a new boot under the name "Atomic Backland Carbon Boot", which you can find here.
Atomic pulled out all the stops for the new Backland series of touring boots. This figurative expression not only refers to pipe-organ knobs, but also to financial constraints, production impediments, and reasons that may stop you from buying them. This includes the most common reason for not-buying a ski boot: poor fit. With a unique heat-moldable shell, the Backland Carbon boots may fit just about everyone.
Here are the main points that might stop you from not-buying:
Update for 2017/18: Atomic updated the color scheme and added a handy pull tab on the ski/walk lever.
