Backland 65 UL Alpine Touring Ski

Atomic's Backland 65 UL Alpine Touring Ski is a super lightweight, uphill oriented stick that will have you crushing ascents like a champ, whether you're a competitive skier or just like to move uphill at impressively quick speeds. The ski's ultralight nature comes from a poplar and caruba wood core, and Atomic added carbon inserts to ensure the ski remains stiff and stable on the descents. A rockered tip paired with Atomic's HRZN Tech tip technology adds more surface area to the ski's tip so you can plow through chop and softer snow with ease, while the skinny 65-millimeter waist and underfoot camber nimbly navigates hardpack. The tips features notches that perfectly accommodate Atomic's Rocker 65 skins for quick and efficient transitions.

Recommended Sizing Guide

Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
