Atomic says about the Backland 86 SL
Incredibly lightweight, highly versatile and designed for all-round ski touring, Atomic Backland 86 SL is a wider ski built with superlight SL Fiberglass, Ultra Light Woodcore construction and a Carbon Backbone to reduce overall weight for efficient uphill climbing. The result of this material combination is a ski that is super lightweight, but extremely smooth and stable on the descent. The All Mountain Rocker profile and HRZN Tech in the tip allow the ski to float in fresh snow and charge through chop and crud with less tip deflection. And the cut-out notch in the tips makes for quick transitioning of pre-fit Atomic skins.
