Atomic have been stirring the cauldrons furiously in Ausria, and they’ve managed to cook up a very special blend of two great boots – the Backland Carbon and the Hawx Ultra XTD – for your touring pleasure this year. The Atomic Backland XTD Carbon 120 Alpine Touring Ski Boots have already been hitting the skintrack with a vengeance, weighing in at 1380 grams in a 26.5 and skiing like a legit 120 flex ski boot. With a fit derived from the best-selling Hawx Prime and a plushness to the liner that seems out of place in this weight class, the Backland XTD Carbon is destined for greatness anywhere there’s backcountry goods to be had.
Last: 100mm – A comfortable medium volume last derived from Atomic’s Hawx Prime boot, meant for all day comfort and then some.
Memory Fit – Advanced heat-fitting technology creates a fully personalized shell, cuff and liner in minutes. The key is Memolink, Atomic’s special additive that improves the moldability and stretch of their plastics. Expansion can be up to 6mm forefoot width and up to 10mm ankle width, resulting in a permanent and complete anatomical fit in minutes. See your bootfitter for details.
Flex: 120 – A stiff flex that promotes aggressive skiing, but not so stiff as to hinder your descent in variable conditions.
3D Platinum Tour Liner – Finally a touring liner with some density and padding, the 3D Platinum Tour is meant for long days in the BC. Breathable and washable.
Hybrid Overlap Shell – An open-throat and semi-overlap shell construction that improves step-in/out and foot wrapping.
Prolite Construction – Instead of starting with a standard construction and cutting material away to save weight, Prolite does the opposite. It starts with the slimmest possible profile and then it builds up reinforcements in key areas where strength is needed.
Energy Backbone – A reinforced, asymmetric backbone providing extra strength for powerful skiing plus enhanced lateral energy transmission for better edge grip.
Shell – Carbon-loaded Polyamide
Cuff – Carbon-loaded Polyamide
Forward Lean – 13˚, 15˚ (default), or 17˚
Free/Lock 4.5 Mechanism – 74˚ range of motion
7000 Series Aluminum Tour Buckles – Cross Lace 2.5 closure on lower shell for even pressure distribution
Cross Lace 2.5 – This closure system securely wraps the foot to create a phenomenal fit with unparalleled foot and ankle hold. A uniform fit is achieved by lacing the adjustment system through the lower buckle, allowing for improved support, easier on and off, personalized settings and a better overall fit. Cross Lace 2.5 is a more powerful Z-cable closure system specifically designed for the Hybrid Overlap of Backland XTD.
