Manufacturer's Description

The full-fat Backland FR for deep storm days, inspired by the former Automatic 117.

The Atomic Backland FR 117 is the fattest Backland FR – our new series of freeride powder chargers. Backland FR is the successor to our Automatic series created with freeride pros Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Dana Flahr. This top model has a 117 mm waist, Carbon Backbone and Powder Rocker profile. It also now features revolutionary HRZN Tech in the tip for more surface area and even better floatation. It’s stiff enough for aggressive skiing on deep storm days or shredding Big Mountain spines. It delivers on harder snow thanks to the camber underfoot. And in comparison to Automatic, we’ve made Backland FR even lighter without sacrificing stability, thanks to a Light Woodcore. This also makes them awesome Freeride Touring skis: great for reaching those best spots – boot packing or skinning.
