Product Info

A ski that floats through the deep stuff, charges through crud, and won't weigh you down on mid-winter tours, the Atomic Backland FR 109 Skis are truly versatile skis. An update on the Automatic 109 of year's past, the Backland FR 109 incorporates Atomic s signature HRZN Tech for smoother transitions and better tracking without adding swing weight, and a carbon backbone for stability. Plus, the Step Down Sidewall 2.0 means you can still lay down an edge when conditions get firm. What're you waiting for? Get yourself a pair of the Atomic Backland FR 109 Skis and get out there.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Powder Rocker 30 / 55 / 15Tip and tail rocker with camber underfoot creates a supremely versatile platform that excels in powder, crud, and everything in between.

Shape

HRZN TechBlends an ABS sidewall construction with a revolutionary across-the-ski (horizontal) rocker to add 10% more surface area in tip and tail. This delivers less tip deflection and better tracking through chop and crud, without adding any swing weight - making it the best design yet for powder.

Core

Light WoodcoreA lightweight laminated poplar core that doesn't scrimp on power or stability.

Laminates

Carbon BackboneAn ultra-lightweight carbon insert that runs the length of the ski like a stabilizing backbone. This provides exceptional agility and edge hold with no extra weight.

Atomic TopsheetsLightweight and highly resistant (made from 50% rapeseed oil).

Sidewalls

Step Down Sidewall 2.0Features a symmetrical step on each end that's stable, light, and durable.

Base

Atomic Base7000-series sintered bases that are fast on any snow, can stand up to anything, and are easy to maintain.

Edges

Atomic EdgesHardened steel for durability and perfect edge grip.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

    Comments about Atomic Backland FR 109 Skis 2017:

    I am 5'9" 135 and skiied the Backland FR 109 in the 189 length. These were really a blast to ride. Comfortable in the fall line, but easy to throw sideways and dump speed if necessary, the FR 109s are an approachable setup for skiers that want a versatile ski for fresh snow days and touring alike without sacrificing power and control.
