Like its predecessor, the Aspect, the completely overhauled Atomic Backland Aspect is the perfect all-round touring performer. With a slightly smaller 85mm waist than the Drifter, combined with an Ultralite Woodcore, it’s lighter so especially good for climbing. That said it’s still awesome on the way down, thanks to a super stable Carbon Backbone – a lightweight insert that runs the length of the ski providing outstanding agility and edge hold. It performs well in any snow, and works perfectly with our range of 100% mohair PreFit skins or new MultiFit AM Rocker Skins. You’ve got the option to attach a regular DIN binding and, with the All Mountain Rocker and Step Down Sidewall, you’ll find it an incredible downhill performer – as good on the piste as it is in the backcountry.
