The Atomic women’s touring ski Backland 102 is the widest of all for optimal powder skiability. Light and responsive, we recommend it to freeride-oriented tourers.
Atomic is one of the rare brands to have a specific line of women’s touring skis and the Backland W 102 stands at the top of this line, being the widest and most powder-friendly one. Weighing a little more than its little brothers (1514g in 172cm), the ski offers a bigger contact surface and a tip and tail rocker to stay afloat with a natural ease. The traditional underfoot camber keeps the ski snappy and grippy on harder terrains.
What can the Atomic Backland W 102 women’s ski do?
Atomic targets women explorers who like to surf the deep with the Backland W 102. This touring ski is wide enough to say it’s a freeride ski. It does feature a light and effortless construction but boasts wider sidecuts than regular touring skis making it best suited for shredding the downhill than for long hikes. Its big rocker and responsive woodcore makes the ski very pleasant and nimble to drive through obstacles. If you have a sporty condition, you’re going to love it.
Who is the Atomic Backland W 102 touring ski designed for?
