Taking the reigns from the ever-popular Backland 100, the Backland FR 102 from Atomic ushers in a new era for Atomic's flagship do-it-all ski. With a revamped construction, the Backland FR 102 features more wood with less fiberglass, metal, and resin, reducing its carbon footprint while maintaining a damp feel. Increasing the amount of rocker to 35% compared to 30% in years past, maneuverability is increased ever so slightly, helping you navigate through tight and technical terrain. The HRZN 3D Backland tip reduces unnecessary weight in the tip, resulting in easier turn initiation while increasing float in deeper snow. Finally, the Dura Cap Sidewall assists with durability and increases edge pressure, helping with edge hold in firm and steep terrain. With a design that strikes a fine middle ground between all the ski categories, the Backland FR 102 is a versatile ski that can handle any adventure you embark upon.

  • FreeTour Profile strikes a versatile balance between weight and stability,
  • HRZN 3D Backland tip uses a perforated and beveled tip to help with turn initiation and decrease the swing weight.
  • Ultra Light Woodcore combines Caruba and Poplar with a hardwood mounting insert to keep weight down without diminishing performance.
  • Dura Cap Sidewall assists with power transfer to the edges while helping to fend off rock strikes.
