Backland 107 Alpine Touring Ski
The Atomic Men's Backland 107 Alpine Touring Ski is a great choice for skiers who enjoy getting out into the backcountry on deep days and also want a ski that can rip on days spent in the resort. Weighing in at under seven pounds per pair, this set of sticks certainly won't hold you back on pre-dawn ascents or long weekend tours, but their lightweight nature doesn’t take one bit of performance out of your hard-earned descents. A generous 107 millimeter waist will keep your tips afloat in powder, and the rockered tip and tail ensure the ski stays playful and easy to maneuver in bottomless snow and groomers alike. And, Atomic's HRZN Tech in the tip boasts 10% more surface area for extra float and a surfy feel without compromising the ski's lightweight nature.
The Backland 107 is constructed around a lightweight yet strong wood core that won't weight you down on the ups and keeps the ski damp and smooth on the descents. A full-length carbon insert furthers the downhill capabilities of the Backland by creating a stable, agile ski that's quick and easy from edge to edge. Complete with full sidewalls for torsional stability and better precision through each turn, these skis are ready for you to express yourself on hard-earned, untracked lines.

Love at First Ski
I bought these skis sight unseen and fell in love with them my first day on the slopes. Since then, I found myself never skiing my other skis and grabbing the backland every time I went up to the resort. With 100 days or so on this ski, they are still skiing like the first time, super durable. They rip groomers, powder, and crud. You name it, they do it... really well. I can't imagine skiing anything else.

I put about 60 ski days on the Backland 107 last year and man was I impressed. I come from a ski racing background, so it's crucial for me to ski on something that can arc some turns and that is exactly what this ski does. Mounted with shift bindings I skied this ski almost everyday from the mountain to the backcountry. I skied the 189, I am 6 feet tall, and the 19.5 meter radius allowed me to rip groomers better than any other ski ever has. The ski is not super stiff but has loads of pop. The horizon tech gave it a surfy feel in the powder and the 107 was more than enough for any deep day here in Oregon. Can't recommend enough. The only thing I didn't like about the ski was how it cut through super choppy terrain at high speeds. Due to the light weight, which is great for touring and pretty much every other aspect of skiing, the ski would deflect off of chop instead of mashing through. Obviously if you want a super hard charging ski Atomic has the Backland 117 and the Vantage 107 Ti, which I am very excited to try out this year.

From resort days to backcountry missions, this is the one ski that can do it all. Very capable on firm and mix snow and a perfect balance of light weight and agility for tough conditions and long days. Find out more at https://shop.atomic.com/en-us/products/backland-107-aa3937.html
