    Product feature
    1. Construction
      Sandwich construction with a lightweight poplar and caruba core that makes the ski relatively lightweight and more enjoyable when climbing without compromising on agility when going downhill.
    2. Skins
      Simple and sturdy adhesive skins. This skin, which is made of 70% mohair and 30% nylon, is versatile. Ideal for long cross-country outings, where comfort and glide play an essential role.
    3. Preparation:
      Waxed and sharpened skis – ready to use. Edges sharpened at 89°.
    4. What is a camber?
      When placing a ski on the ground, its points of contact are found near the tip and heel, whereas the middle of the ski (under the bindings) is slightly raised (this is the camber). The longer and higher the camber, the greater the edge grip and more responsive the ski. The lower the camber, the more forgiving and manageable the ski is.
    5. What is a rocker?
      On a rocker ski, the tip, and sometimes the tail, comes off the ground much sooner than with a cambered ski. This moves the points of contact towards the centre of the ski. The surface of the ski in contact with the snow is smaller: they allow better handling and floatation on soft snow. When taking corners, the edge length offers more edge grip on hard snow. The longer the rocker, the better the handling your skis will allow.
    6. Backland 85 profile:
      15% of the ski's length has a rocker profile. This long and progressive tip is equally good for going uphill as well as having fun going downhill.
    7. What are ski sidecuts?
      The sidecuts have 3 measurements: the width of the tip (front of the ski), the waist width (middle of the ski) and the tail (back of the ski). The wider the tip, the easier it is to initiate turns. The slimmer the waist width, the more edge grip the ski has on hard snow. The wider the waist, the more comfortable and stable the ski is in changing snow conditions. The wider the waist, the greater the stability of the ski in turns. The slimmer the tail, the easier it is to side-slip.
    8. Sidecuts
      120/85/109mm, 17m sidecut radius in size 169 cm.
    9. Available sizes
      163 / 169 / 175 cm
    Product testing
    1. Product catchline
      The Atomic Backland 85 ski is a very good compromise in terms of edge grip on hard snow and floatation on powder snow. Highly suited to going uphill because of its weight!
