Atomic have extended their popular Backland range and added the excellent Backland 107 W to the mix – a women’s free-touring ski in a super-light package.
Weighing in at just 1450g per ski, skinning will feel like a breeze. It really is a triumph of ski tech that a broad ski such as this can genuinely feel so light. And if you’re lucky enough to be regularly finding bottomless fresh on your backcountry missions or looking for a first time pow ski, you’ll be stoked you opted for the Backland 107 W with her girthy dimensions. Maximum floatage guaranteed on those well-earned descents!
With such a wide tip and relatively light overall weight, you might expect a touch of the dreaded ‘flappage’ when giving it the rapid guns in hard snow, but not a bit of it. “Sturdy at speed and super easy to turn – the Backland 107 W is a bouncy, easy-driving ski that’s happy to play all day long,” says Amy.
Built to retain stiffness with an Ultra Power Woodcore and a backbone of super-strength carbon, the directional Backland 107 W makes for a super-smooth transition from the groomers, under the ropes and off into the backcountry.
If 107mm underfoot is a bit too much ski for you, then check out the narrower Backland 98 W – also new for winter 2021, it’s a tighter-turning ski with a shorter radius and even less weight making it the ideal choice for more technical descents.
