We were all new to backcountry skiing at some point. If for you that day is on the horizon, the Atomic Backland Sport boot should be on your shortlist of new gear. Well priced and well built, this boot can get you out there as you begin a new chapter of your adventurous life. With a range of motion that covers 74°, the walk mode is smooth and non-restrictive. An Energy Backbone construction turns that great walk mode into a decent downhill performer. If you want a little more performance from your boot you can swap out the original soft tongue for a stiffer version. The Memory Fit 3D liner is comfortable, performance-oriented, and possibly best of all, it's washable! The two-buckle design saves on weight and does not shy away from big days. Perfect for the junior explorer, this boot is available in smaller sizes and offers a weight-conscious option to all. Save some coin, save some weight and be sure to save plenty of days to play in the mountains with your Atomic Backland Sport boot.

Questions & Reviews
These boots have a rather narrow last and I would like to stretch them wider. Can you tell how well the plastic of these boots stretches when heated? Do they hold stretching well or they shrink back after some time?
Great question! This liner is similar in weight and warmth as others in this range (minus the Backland Ultimate (much thinner liner for racing). I personally ski the Backland Carbon and find the liner to be pretty average in terms of warmth. However, that is pretty dependent upon each person!
