Atomic's all-terrain Backland 88 is shaping the future of the sport while realizing the limits of the planet.

The result of a scientific life cycle assessment, the lower-impact design reduces overall production waste and cuts CO2 equivalent emissions by 30% (compared with the Backland 85, 2021). Incorporating more lower-carbon raw materials and waste-reducing sidewalls, this construction significantly reduces environmental impact while optimizing the ski’s versatility on every type of touring terrain.

All-Terrain Profile uses more poplar wood, less fiberglass, and less resin to create a ski shape that offers greater stability. HRZN 3D features a uniquely beveled tip that adds float in powder and seamlessly integrates into the Dura Cap sidewall for a hyper-responsive tip-to-sidewall-to-edge connection.

A versatile ski built for those skiers who enjoy touring the entire mountain, the Backland 88 delivers soulful performance in any terrain.
