The lightest in Atomic's new family of fast and light boots, the Atomic Backland Carbon Light Ski Boots are perfect for the adventurous ski mountaineer who participates in the occasional rando race. Weighing in at less than 1,000 grams in a 27.5, the Backland Carbon Light absolutely flies up the skintrack and still has enough power to rock the descents. If you've looked at other boots in this class and found them too narrow or too low in the instep, the Backland Carbon Light will be a revelation the new Memory Fit heat moldable Grilamid shell will typically accommodate feet up to 102 mm wide or even wider. The huge 74deg range of cuff motion is best in class, and the UltralonTM foam Platinum Light Liner is both breathable and hand washable. The Backland Carbon Light comes with Atomic's softer Quick Click tongue, which can be removed or left in to fit your desires.
