At 987g per boot in uphill setting, the Atomic Backland Carbon Light is the lightest model in our new Backland series – a custom boot that’s all about the ascent. One of its standout features is the Platinum Light liner, which is superlight and has breathable zones on the midsole and base to allow excess heat and moisture to escape during climbing. The boots are also packed with touring features for epic natural movement like the Frictionless Pivot, Quick Click Tongue system and Free/Lock 2.0 mechanism that frees the cuff from the shell for incredible 74° cuff mobility. They feature a Cross Lace system that wraps the foot, plus a rockered sole for climbing. And unlike any other touring boots, Backland boots are packed with Atomic all-mountain technology, like a Carbon Spine for powerful skiing and Memory Fit to make them super comfortable.
Atomic's brand-new Backland boots make touring much more efficient and a better experience for everyone – pros and rookies alike. What makes them really stand out is the way they move: they offer an impressive range of motion that feels so natural, it’s epic. This is thanks to our new Free/Lock 2.0 mechanism that frees the cuff from the shell for incredible 74° cuff mobility. Plus a Frictionless Pivot for a super smooth movement and a removable tongue for climbing.
Like the leading touring boots they are super light, with the Backland Carbon Light weighing in at just 987 g. But unlike any other touring boot they’re packed with our all-mountain boot technology like Memory Fit to make them super comfortable. Plus a Carbon Spine for the powerful skiing you expect from any Atomic boot.
