Atomic did not forget about the fairer sex when developing its new line of alpine touring boots. The Women's Backland is packed with most of the same technology as the carbon version, but with a softer flex and better colors. The boots ascend like a dream, with scant weight and a nearly frictionless pivot while in walk mode. A simple flip of the rear lock lever puts you in downhill mode, where the Grilamid shell and Platinum liner comfortably drive your skis. The Backlands are a complete boot from top to bottom.

  • Breathable Platinum liner (212g) can be laced for a glove-like fit, reducing blisters.
  • Gently rockered sole with Skywalk rubber make quick work of any rocky commutes.
  • Simple and reliable Free/Lock 2.0 lever helps smooth your transitions.
  • Comes with a Quick Click tongue (44g) that is soft enough to allow big strides.
  • If necessary, the Memory Fit baking process helps adapt the plastic to your foot.

Updates for 16/17: The Backland W gets a new paint job, but otherwise remains the same.

Updates for 17/18: The new Backland W gets another fresh coat of paint on both the shell and liner, but otherwise remains the same as prior years.

Question from maude
 
How does the flex/stiffness on this boot compare to the Atomic Backland Carbon (which I've read is ~120)? Second question, is this boot compatible with most automatic crampons?

Answer from Jeff m
 
Maude, Atomic (or anywhere else in my search) has a stated flex for the Backlands. Flex ratings are not based on any fixed scale and as a result are pretty subjective. In the case of the Backlands, there would be 2 flexes depending on which tongue is in the boot. The stiff tongue does stiffen the boot a lot and may be about a 110 flex. The woman's boot is softer and comes with the soft tongue, so maybe around a 90 or less flex. Also, for even easier time walking you can remove the tongue for a unrestricted full range of motion.

Question from Carrie
 
Are these boots compatible with other than a pin binding?

Answer from Trace Leches
 
Hey Carrie! That's a negative, just pin bindings on these ones! The Scarpa Gea RS and Sportiva Sparkle have better binding compatibility (though still somewhat limited, in that they won't pop into standard alpine bindings) which would give you a bit more freedom with your binding choice!
