Description

Show Description

A light touring ski that shines bright on powder days. With a wood core from toe to tail and a carbon backbone to stiffen it up, the Backland 98 lets you reach deep mountain terrain and quickly lap your skintrack for another powder hit. The HRZN Tech tip is spoon-shaped to provide extra float in powder. Reach all the best stashes, pick your line and drop in.

  • Core is made of poplar and beech wood to bring the weight as low as possible.
  • Carbon Backbone adds snap and edge-hold with very minimal weight penality.
  • HRZN Tech spoon-like tip reduces deflection and improves control in powder.
  • Full sidewall construction improves steering.
  • Powder Rocker is 20% rocker in the tip, 10% in the tail, and 70% camber underfoot for maximum stability in weird conditions and float in deep powder.
  • 7000-series sintered base holds wax very well for fast glide in any snow conditions.
  • Topsheets are lightweight and wear-resistant.
