    FS: 182 Atomic Backland 107 AT Skis

    137-107-124, 18.5m, 1,540g

    Bought these Fall 2018, but other than being drilled for Vipec / Tecton at -2mm for 300 BSL ZeroG Tour Pro (using a digital vertical mill so the holes are perfectly positioned), these are as-new. Only ONE boot-up and run in the backcountry, so there's not even the slightest ding on the skis anywhere. I mounted at -2mm for the ZeroG's so I'd be just a hair ahead of the line with my shorter Alien RS. You could easily drop another pair of Vipecs or Tectons (which have lots of heel adjustment) into the current tapped holes and be ready to roll without having to pay for shop mount.

    I like them a lot, just decided to go shorter. This length appears to be sold out everywhere so I can't check the going price for a new pair, but I scored a deal at $560, so I can do $469 net to me with free shipping to lower 48.

    Reusing the current drilled & tapped holes for Tecton / Vipec Evo will fit 284 to 309mm BSL. Used Gorilla Glue, which soaks into wood and leaves nice strong threaded holes in ski. (Epoxy can tear out threads in ski when you try to remove screws, which is why I only use epoxy for inserts.)

    6/5 edit: Took careful measurements and corrected BSL range.

    1,550g per ski on my postal scale.

    That's 100g lighter than the black-topsheet 2020 model, which is odd considering Atomic said "no changes" for next season other than color. Maybe the factory was sloppy with the epoxy for 2020. https://blisterreview.com/gear-revie...c-backland-107

    This is a great ski mags. I have a pair of 189s and skied the 182 in the Backcountry Magazine gear test last year. Super versatile, light and quite stable for their weight. Ski like a wider ski in deep snow and hold on better than you would expect on firm snow. re: the weight discrepancy, I have heard different weight reports in the range of 50 g within the 2019 model year from different sources. I'm not sure why that would be, but I also have never weighed different skis of the same model and size before. FWIW, my 189s come in at 1620. Somebody buy these. You won't regret it.

    I boiled my thermometer, and sure enough, this spot, which purported to be two thousand feet higher than the locality of the hotel, turned out to be nine thousand feet LOWER. Thus the fact was clearly demonstrated that, ABOVE A CERTAIN POINT, THE HIGHER A POINT SEEMS TO BE, THE LOWER IT ACTUALLY IS. Our ascent itself was a great achievement, but this contribution to science was an inconceivably greater matter.
