Head into the backlands on a ski built for it. Atomic brings back the Backland 95 with a new topsheet but the same meat and potatoes as last year. These are some seriously lightweight backcountry touring skis that know how to handle the influence of gravity. Rather than introduce popsicle-stick backcountry skis, Atomic has taken its time to get the Backlands down to a competitive weight. How come? They never want to compromise skiability. Seriously, have you ever tried to slide down an icy mountain on popsicle sticks? It sucks! Worse, it is zero fun. And skiing is supposed to be fun, whether you roll with dawn-patrol resort skinning, meadow hopping, or couloir conquering - all of which, by the way, the Backland 95 was born to handle. Similar skis: Blizzard Zero G 95, Salomon MTN Explore 95.
