When it comes to technical sports like skiing, the earlier the kiddos learn their Pizzas and French Fries, the better. Atomic's Backland Junior extends the reliability and versatility of their ubiquitous adult touring line to future uphill champions aged approximately 9-11. The Backland Junior is a true all-mountain ski, combining a directional turn shape with so-called "piste rocker" (a mix of mild tip rocker and extended camber) that, thanks to its wideish waist, will still make short work of softer snow. Dura Cap sidewalls boost durability for those inevitable early-season scrapeups, while a solid densolite foam core keeps grams to a minimum so your family won't get too jealous of the lift riders. This is a ski that won't overturn, slide out from underneath the skier or fold on its first rock collision, making it a worthy pair with your favorite junior hybrid or touring bindings.
- Medium turn radius is friendly for beginner skiers.
- Dura cap sidewalls keep these skis going throughout the season and beyond (can anyone say, hand-me-downs??)
- Densolite foam core is affordable and lightweight for the kids' first uphill skiing exploits.
- Piste rocker profile helps these skis pop, carve or pizza-for-dear-life on conditions from fresh groomers to several inches of fresh snow.
- Structured topsheet provides a high-quality, durable finish.
