PRODUCT INFORMATION

"The most progressive backcountry ski we've ever made."

DESCRIPTION

The new Backland Drifter is the widest, most progressive ski in our all-new Atomic backcountry touring ski series. It has the best all-terrain downhill performance in the range, but it’s still ideal for the dual disciplines of touring: an Ultralite Woodcore makes climbing easy and energy efficient, with PreFit skins for the Drifter or easily-trimmed MultiFit AM Rocker Skins. A super-stable Carbon Backbone running the length of the ski minimizes weight, while providing outstanding agility and edge hold on the descent. It performs well in any snow, too. 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.

TECHNOLOGY

Carbone Backbone

One reason Backland is so versatile is the Carbon Backbone - an ultra-lightweight carbon insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilizing backbone. This provides exceptional agility and edge hold, but also keeps the ski's weight right down. and allowing you to charge the chop with confidence.

Ultralite Woodcore

Incredibly lightweight Poplar/Caruba woods keep Backland's weight down but without compromising downhill performance.

All Mountain Rocker

A tip rocker designed to give you great performance in varying conditions and over any snow.
