Atomic stuck with what works when it designed its Backland Tour Binding--its intuitive design aims to make touring an efficient experience by combing a classic two-pin toe piece with a streamlined heel piece. A small metal bar extends across the binding to guide your boot's tech fittings into the pins as you step into the binding, eliminating the chance of overshooting the pins to save time during transitions. Atomic also widened the mounting pattering of the binding, which helps improve power transmission to the ski and strengthen binding retention to reduce the risk of pullouts when you're skiing aggressively in less-than-ideal conditions. Putting an emphasis on simplicity, Atomic designed the heel to rotate in both directions and equipped it with two heel risers to adapt to varying terrain and slope angles although, your touring partners will appreciate it if you keep your skin track as mellow as possible.

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
