The Atomic Quick-Click tongue system allows you to transform your Backland boots from excellent up-hillers to excellent down-hillers. Or you can get a compromise tongue to handle a little of each. Choose from the options below, which are interchangeable amongst all the Backland models. The tongues are divided into groups of two shell sizes, e.g. one tongue will work from size 26-27.
Stiff Orange – The performance tongues found in the Backland Carbon boot
Soft Black – The soft flexing touring tongues that ship with the Backland Carbon Light.
Questions & Reviews
I lost the orange hard tongue for my size 26/27 Atomic Backland Carbon boots (fell off my pack today while ascending Kachina Peak in Taos NM). I think the boots are 2 years old (purchased in spring, 2018). I'm trying to squeeze a few more days in this spring and hoping you can help me find a pair of tongues that will fit in those boots. Thanks!
Hey Mark, at the moment we are sold out of the orange tongues in your size, but if you would like to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org we can either special order a pair for you or put you on a notification list when we get them in. If time is of the essence and any tongue will do, the black ones will also fit in your boot, they'll just be a softer flex.
Are the backland tongues sold as pairs? If so, is it possible to buy a single tongue? I bought a pair of backlands from a store and they came with one stiff Orange and one flexible black tongue. Ideally I would like to order one of each. Thanks. Marcus
Oh boy. Yeah, they come as pairs. I'm assuming you have already but I'd try talking with the store you purchased them from.
Hey Marcus! I bought a pair used with only 1 orange tongue. If you still have a spare orange tongue I would possibly buy it off of you or sell it to you. Where you at?
