The Atomic Backland FR is a new ski pole to go with our new Backland FR skis. And like our skis, it’s been designed and developed with the help of Freeski legend Chris Benchetler. A good freeride pole needs to keep you light, nimble and focussed on the job. So we’ve made it from lightweight aluminum alloy, we’ve given it a Bike Grip that won’t slip and an 85mm Powder Basket for better floatation. But in the backcountry, a good pole needs to do more than help you ski well, so we’ve built-in a handy ski-binding screwdriver for adjustments and repairs on the move. The pole also has a Carbide tip to protect against rocks and trees, and you can adjust it from 110cm to 130cm.
Taking a giant leap into the unknown, Atomic have made themselves synonymous with freestyle skiing. With the help of freeski giants such as Jossi Wells, Atomic has taken the freeski scene by storm innovating not only their image but skiing itself. With some of the flyest freeskis on the market, Atomic have broken the mold that only had space for alpine racing.
