Atomic Backland 80 SL (Backcountry Touring Ski 2021/2022)

Product Summary

Due to its lighweight construction the Atomic Backland 80 SL is easy to handle not only downhill but also during longer ascents. This ski is just right for good skiers. Stable but not overpowering. The Backcountry Touring Ski prefers perfectly groomed runs over fresh powder. However due to its medium-width waist, this ski is also a good shout for riders who like to venture off piste from time to time. The ski is available from 149 to 177cm.

The ski in details

The ideal balance of uphill climbing and downhill performance, Atomic Backland 80 SL features SL Fiberglass to keep the weight of the ski down.

A great ski for alpine touring, Atomic Backland 80 SL is built with superlight SL Fiberglass, Ultra Light Woodcore and a Carbon Backbone to reduce overall weight for efficient uphill performance. A bit narrower than the Backland 86 SL, this smooth, stable, and super lightweight ski loves to climb. Solid on the way down, the All Mountain Rocker allows the ski to blast through variable conditions and the Carbon Backbone provides exceptional agility and stable edge grip on the descent. A cut-out notch in the tips allows for quick and easy skin transitions. Super lightweight, smooth, and stable this ski sits between Backland UL and regular Backland skis.
