Atomic has taken a new approach to just about everything related to ski-touring: skis, skins, bindings and boots. The Backland Ultimate is no exception. It’s a skimo race boot that incorporates Memory Fit, a revolutionary molding-technology that has made Atomic famous among skiers with ugly feet. The entire boot, including the shell, can be thrown in an oven for a few minutes (do not attempt). Cold compression wraps cool the boot around the contours of your foot to create the ultimate fit profile. Memory Fit is a moldable shell design that is soft and pliable when hot, but stiff and responsive when cold. A washable sock-style liner is employed in the Backland Ultimate to provide simplicity and supple comfort throughout a day of touring or racing. A large single-throw lever dictates walk or ski mode in a simple and durable fashion. The carbon cuff and frictionless pivots allow the boot to walk like a running shoe. A grippy Skywalk rubber sole encourages booting up ridgelines. The Backland Ultimate is Atomic’s proud debut into the world of race-boots and it will quickly be a favorite for some.

  • 80° of articulation is well beyond the capabilities of the average human ankle.
  • Carbon Cuff adds stiffness and precision while a Grilamid shell durably handles walking duties.
  • Free/Lock 3.0 is one of the easiest and simplest boot closure designs out there.
  • Serviceable, frictionless pivots are rock solid for skiing precision and walking freedom.
  • Skywalk Rubber Sole summons Luke Skywalker-like traction and speed.

Question from Aitor Murua
 
Buenos dias,
Llevo 5 años con la carpa alíen 1.0 y tengo que cambiar. Estoy contento con la bota pero me seduce la atomice blackland ultimate por el hecho que se puede termodonformar la bota y el botín. Tengo una pequeño juanete en el exterior del pie, y siempre termino el día deseando quitarme la bota. Mi pregunta: ¿Cómo se conforma la bota y el botín? Se puede hacer en casa o hay alguna aparato especifico para conformarlos?
Y por otra parte, con la Alien 1.0 terminaba con el pie totalmente mojado, ya que no tiene lengüeta delantera. Con la Atomic Blackland ultimate como habéis solucionado este tema?
Gracias. Me quedo a la espera de sus noticias

Hey Aitor, gracias por llegar. El plástico MemoryFit debe ser moldeado por un profesional con el equipo adecuado que la mayoría de las tiendas de esquí no tienen (es un método de moldeo patentado que utiliza Atomic). ¡Es una idea bastante intrigante y hemos encontrado un gran éxito con Backland Carbon! El trazador de líneas no nos ha presentado ningún problema, aparte del hecho de que es bastante ajustado. Se moldea muy bien, aunque el brazalete es mucho más bajo en el frente que su Alien 1.0, así que a menos que lo esté usando en motos de carrera, es probable que no tenga el poder de su Alien 1.0.

Question from Alonzo
 
Hello,

Does upward pressure created by the cord when the cuff buckle is closed help to keep the lever locked into ski mode, or does the cord tension from the lever in ski mode just provide tension to the cuff? In other words, could the boot be locked into ski mode with the cuff left loose (or unbuckled altogether)? Thanks, you guys are the best.

Cheers.

Answer from Rebekah S
 
Hi Alonzo,

The cord on the boot is connected to the ski/walk lever. When you pull the lever to walk mode, it loosens the power strap. There is a spring and lock that keeps the boot in ski mode, so essentially you can have the boot in ski mode but have the power strap loose. Here's a picture of the spring assembly in the lever.

Hi Alonzo, just to add some color: you can loosen the strap and have the boot in ski mode which will give you some movement, but it's not fully open as compared to being in walk mode.

Question from J P
 
I'm looking at these boots and the PDGs, can you speak to how they compare in stiffness? Skiability? Thanks,

Answer from jbo
 
Hi J P, the PDGs are a little bit taller and stiffer in forward flex which may translate into skiing performance depending on your style.

Question from Jonas
 
What is the sole length of a size 26.5 Backland Ultimate?
On your sole length page you write 278 mm but for every other Backland model the sole length is 288 mm for size 26.5.

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Jonah. Thanks for reaching out! Yup, 278mm is the BSL for the 26.5 Backland Ultimate. Race boots typically have a shorter BSL than their equivalently sized "heavyweight" brethren, even with the same internal length. If you fit the 26.5 Backland Carbon then you'll fit the 26.5 Ultimate.
