Atomic says about the Backland Pro UL
The Atomic Backland Pro UL is simply the best value of any boot in the fast and light Backland UL family. The carbon-loaded shell provides solid downhill skiing performance and the Frictionless Pivot and Free / Lock 4.0 ski-to-walk system deliver epic natural movement for hiking boot like comfort while climbing up hill, and alpine boot performance when the cuff is locked in ski mode. The durable Boa® Fit System ensures a precise fit that can be effortlessly adjusted on the go. Designed for quick transitions, the new Speed Strap cuff closure system integrates the buckle and power strap all in one for lightweight, single action engagement. A washable, breathable 3D Gold Tour UL liner is equipped with Dura Shield which adds protection to the liner and greatly improves its durability for long term use. This is the ideal boot for ski tourers who are mindful of overall weight.
