Atomic 2017 Backland FR 102

If you’re looking to explore the entire mountain in search of deeper snow, the Atomic Backland FR 102 ski is your ideal companion. It’s part of our new Backland FR range of freeride powder chargers – successor to the popular Automatic series. Thanks to a 102mm waist, coupled with Powder Rocker – big in the tip, smaller in the tail – it delivers awesome flotation and easy handling in soft snow. The Step Down Sidewall 2.0 construction, Carbon Backbone and Light Woodcore guarantee a smooth ride, great durability and provide stability. At the same time the pronounced camber underfoot ensures optimum edge grip and makes the ski super versatile on hard and mixed snow, too. Add some Tracker bindings and MultiFit Powder Rocker Skins on this low-weight model and you’ve got a superb Freeride Touring ski for your powder missions.

  • EDGES Our edges are made from steel five times more wear resistant than standard steel, for strength and perfect grip.
  • TOP SHEETS Our topsheets are lightweight and highly resistant (made 50% from rapeseed oil).
  • CORES At the core of every ski are the materials – and particularly the different types of wood – that determine how it behaves.
  • LIGHT WOODCORE Made from poplar – ideal for our powder, all-mountain and free ride touring skis that need to be strong but really light.
  • ULTRA LIGHT WOODCORE The poplar and carob woodcore for skis that are all about low weight, like our touring skis.
  • LAMINATES
  • Around the main core are the materials that fine-tune the performance of a ski.
  • TITANIUM POWERED
  • A titanium layer above and below the core creates supreme shock absorption, strong running stability and a high torsional flex.
  • TITANIUM STABILIZER
  • One titanium layer under the core for great shock absorption and torsional flex.
  • TITANIUM BACKBONE
  • A titanium insert runs the length of the ski on top of the core like a stabilizing backbone – really dynamic and stable for all-mountain skis.
  • CARBON POWERED
  • A carbon layer above and below the core – for high strength at low weight in skis like the Ultimate.
  • CARBON TANK MESH
  • In Vantage and Vantage X – a layer of super rigid, woven mesh that adds strength across the ski without adding weight.
  • CARBON BACKBONE
  • A dynamic carbon insert for our lightweight backcountry skis: Backland FR and Backland.
  • FIBERGLASS LAMINATES
  • Fiberglass layers that are great for torsional stiffness across the length and width of the ski. Lightweight and very dynamic.
  • Sidewalls affect how the ski dampens impacts and transmits power. We use five different types to suit different types of snow and skiing.
  • STEP DOWN SIDEWALL
  • Features a symmetrical step on each end that’s stable, light and durable.
  • FIREWALL
  • Extra full under the binding with flex grooves for awesome power transmission and edge grip on hard pack.
  • FULL SIDEWALL
  • Runs across the full length of the ski for precise steering, ideal for high-performing race and piste skis.
  • TAPERED SIDEWALL
  • Thicker towards the rear of the ski for extra acceleration and steering at high speed.
  • FULL CAP
  • A construction with no sidewall where the top sheet folds down over the edges, making it easy to handle.
