Description courte

The Backland W 78 is a light women’s touring ski suited for long climbs. Nimble and narrow construction make skinning up a breeze and skiing down easy.

This is the lightest women’s touring ski available in Atomic’s lineup (outside the UL series). Built on an ultra light woodcore and featuring a rockered tip, the ski weighs only 1070g in 157cm. This should help you make the difference when climbing. 

What can the Atomic Backland W 78 women’s ski do? 

The W 78 is even lighter than the W 85 which makes it super easy to carry uphill. Kick turns are effortless and the ski doesn’t slow you down. You will save a lot of time and energy with a Backland on your feet. On the downhill, the ski works well. The 78mm waist offers enough support on all kinds of snow and lots of control on hard and icy terrains. Obviously, you’re not going to float pow like you would with a 100mm+ waisted ski but you’ll definitely make your way down without struggling. Solid flex and edge control make the Backland 78 just as good as a standard all mountain ski with a similar width. 

Who is the Atomic Backland W 78 women’s touring ski designed for? 

It is a good choice for intermediate and advanced women tourers who want a uphill-focused touring ski. Ultra light and versatile, the Backland W 78 is great for long tours like a Chamonix-Zermatt. 

What are the main assets of the Atomic Backland W 78 touring ski?
