K2 GotBack Skis - Women's 2012: No longer the widest ski in the Backside series, the K2 GotBack Skis remain the most versatile with its lightweight and playful BioFlex Core, 102mm waist and All-Terrain Rocker™. These skis carry the lightweight characteristics of K2 s other touring skis combined with the all-mountain rockered performance characterized by its bigger sisters. New for 2012, the K2 GotBack Skis have the addition of Carbon Web technology to create an added level of responsiveness while staying lightweight.
All-Terrain Rocker™ is designed for all snow conditions, featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance and improved skinning ascent with camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions.
Progressive Sidecut is a combination of two different radii that enhances the versatility of wider-waist skis. This guarantees improved turn initiation and hard-snow performance.
Cap Construction is durable, lightweight, and softer, built by a sophisticated molding process that envelopes the core and internal materials with the top layer of the ski.
Powder Tip tapers early to avoid hooking.
Tip/Tail Hardware - removable plugs reveal holes that can be used to attach K2 Pre-Cut Skins or build a rescue sled
SnoPhobic Topsheets keep the ski light with a snow-repellent top
BioFlex 3 Core (80% Aspen, 20% Paulownia): dense Aspen underfoot fused with lightweight Paulownia at the tip and tail with blended Bamboo throughout for increased performance, strength, and durability with reduced swing weight.
Triaxial Braiding consists of braiding fiberglass around the wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control.
Carbon Web is a weave of carbon strands that envelopes the Mod structure for an additional level of torsional rigidity, while still keeping the ski light.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
