Manufacturer's Description

Like its predecessor, the Aspect, the Atomic Backland 85 ski is the perfect all-round touring performer. With a slightly smaller 85mm waist than the 95, combined with an Ultra Light Woodcore, it’s lighter so especially good for climbing. That said it’s still awesome on the way down, thanks to a super stable Carbon Backbone – a lightweight insert that runs the length of the ski providing outstanding agility and edge hold. It performs well in any snow, and works perfectly with our range of 100% Mohair PreFit skins or new MultiFit AM Rocker Skins. And, with the All Mountain Rocker and Step Down Sidewall, you’ll find it an incredible downhill performer – as good on the piste as it is in the backcountry.
