W ATOMIC BACKLAND 98 - 2022Regular price $699.99
If you're looking for a versatile touring ski to span the entire season (in the Pacific Northwest that means November to November), this is your jam. At 98mm in the waist and with a HRZN Tech Tip, the Backland 98 does just fine in fresh snow, and at 1,200 grams per ski it goes uphill like crazy, too.
All Mountain Rocker – 20% Tip Rocker / 70% Camber / 10% Tail Rocker
HRZN Tech Tip – HRZN Tech adds 10% more surface area at your ski tips. For awesome flotation in powder plus less tip deflection and better tracking through chop.
Ultra Power Woodcore – A combination of beech and lightweight poplar for power and stability without excess weight.

Dura Cap Sidewall – Sidewall for power transmission combined with a small cap for durability.
Atomic Base – High-density sintered bases that are fast in a variety of snow conditions and accept wax readily
Atomic Edges – Atomic edges are made from steel five times more wear resistant than standard steel, for strength and perfect grip.
