Technical info:
The widest ski in the test has a fairly light construction. Backland has a lot of sidecut in the front ski, but less sidecut towards the tail. The tail is relatively high, despite the short rocker. A lot of rocker in the front. Soft flex with a slightly stiffer tip and tail. The camber is short, but high (5mm/19mR).

On snow:
This ski floats well and it enjoys big, open turns. The edge grip is also good considering the size. The downside is that it is not among the easiest to turn. This is a ski that suits you who want a big mountain ski, or like to cruise through big turns down the groomed slopes. It is also the lightest construction in the test. All in all, Backland is a good alternative for the ski touring enthusiast who likes to make speed.
