In a crowded field of mid-fat skis with backcountry/resort versatility, the Backland 107 leads the charge. HRZN tech tips and tails bring plush surfability and make the skis easy to slash, smear, and pivot. Carbon backbone gives the skis crud-busting ability and dampness, while an ultralight woodcore ensures that the Backland can go uphill efficiently, by skintrack or bootpack. Paired with an alpine binding, the Backland is an excellent, lightweight resort ski with enough camber underfoot to lay down solid carves on groomers. Great choice for in-bounds skiers who like lighter skis or backcountry skiers who would rather not compromise downhill performance.
