Backland Ultimate Ski Boot
For the endurance-oriented backcountry skier who bags peaks for breakfast, Atomic created the Backland Ultimate Ski Boot. The lighter and leaner younger sibling of the original terrain-crushing Backland, the Backland Ultimate weighs in at just 1lb 11oz per boot, making them Atomic's lightest offering to date.
This uphill machine has a tough yet lightweight Grilamid shell with a Carbon spine to assure power and precision when you're ripping turns down your fourth peak of the day. Atomic's Memory Fit 3D technology features a heat-moldable shell, cuff, and liner, for a fully customizable fit that's sure to please just about any odd-footed fellow on the skintrack, and the impressive 80-degree cuff rotation offers more range of motion than your ankle could ever need. Skywalk Rubber and a rockered sole give you solid traction on icy traverses and slick bootpacks, so you'll have no problem when it's time to pop the skis off for the trickier part of the ascent.

- Q & A
This boot is unreal.. Slip in, run uphill, then feel confident as heck skiing downhill.. Light as a feather yet skis like an XTD type boot.. Amazing technology!! Love it!
Remember tho, pin bindings only! Shift does not work with this boot.
Incredible Price for the features
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Yo have to spend another $800 to match the features this boot offers and even then, you will not find another boot in this category with the ability to do a full memory fit-the shell and liner mold to your foot which means wide feet can push the shell out from 98mm stock to 104mm.
