The Atomic Backland Pure is a convenient and truly lightweight tech binding for alpine touring – weighing in at just 305g per pair with the included leash. It’s durable and easy to use, featuring a patented step-in aid at the front so your boot is automatically positioned to click in. Then two climbing aids work separately from the heel tower, so with one easy click you can choose between 0°, 7° and 13° positions. Performance-wise the Backland Pure is exceptional, with a broad 40mm mounting for max power transmission on wide skis (this also cuts the risk of the screws pulling out). It’s compatible with standard crampons and has a lengthy 30mm sole-length adjustment.
