The ski in details

The Atomic Backland 89 SL W is a superlight, all-around touring ski for women who seek uphill agility and endless downhill possibility in a lower-impact design.

The Atomic Backland 89 SL W is a superlight, all-around touring ski for women who seek uphill agility and endless downhill possibility. A result of a scientific life cycle assessment, Atomic has created a ski with a lower-impact design to cut CO2 emissions by 30% without sacrificing an ounce of performance. This new material makeup utilizes more wood, less fiberglass and resin, and new waste-reducing sidewalls for a light, stronger, profile that thrives in any terrain. The revolutionary All-Terrain Profile changes the thickness curve, torsional stiffness, and flex pattern to create a ski shape with the utmost versatility, even on harder snow surfaces. The genius behind the Backland SL line is an ultra-light woodcore, crafted with caruba and poplar woods, combined with a stabilizing Carbon Backbone for powerful downhill performance. The wider 89mm waist and the uniquely beveled tips of HRZN 3D – the next generation succeeding original HRZN tech – offer more float and better handling in variable snow, enabling the ski to dominate powder, hardpack, groomers or any condition in between. For the ultimate touring set up, choose an Atomic PreFit skin to match.
