Atomic says about the Backland 85 UL
Fast and light, Atomic Backland 85 UL is a top-end, supremely lightweight endurance touring ski and one of the lightest touring skis Atomic makes. Slightly wider than the Backland 78 UL and powered with reengineered futuristic Carbon Fiberglass construction, this ski delivers snappy kick turns and speed on the skin track. The Ultra Light Woodcore construction provides extremely lightweight skiing performance and exceptionally efficient, fast climbing. All Mountain Rocker allows for smooth and stable performance on the descent while HRZN Tech in the tip floats in fresh snow and charges through chop and crud. And for racers, the cut-out notch in the tips makes transitioning Atomic pre-fit skins super quick and easy.
