K2 ShesBack Skis - Women's 2013: The K2 ShesBack features the narrowest waist and curviest sidecut in the Women’s Adventure collection. As a result, it’s not only the quickest, but boasts the best hard snow performance due to the metal laminate construction. The addition of Speed Rocker™ this year makes initiation effortless and improves trail breaking for At or tele skiers who choose it as a high performance
Speed Rocker™ Designed for firmer snow, this slightly elevated tip and increased tip length provide effortless initiation and improved skinning performance, while camber along the remaining running surface delivers precision, power and edgehold.
Full Paulownia Core An eco-friendly and extremely lightweight core.
TNC Metal Laminate Construction Weight reduction is paramount in the BackSide series. The BackSide specific TNC metal laminate lessens weight while providing an accurate and responsive feel.
Cap Construction A durable, lightweight, and softer construction.
SnoPhobic Topsheets Shed snow off your skis to keep them light when skinning. Applying wax to these P-tex topsheets increases their snow shedding performance.
Tip/Tail Hardware Vastly increases the skis’ utility: By allowing you to build a rescue sled or construct various ski anchors, you can carry less weight while increasing your safety margin. These holes also function as attachment points for K2 Pre-Cut Skins and come with a removable plug.
Skin Clip Arc The tails are designed with a concave notch to ensure that the skin clip, regardless of size or skin brand, stays securely centered on the tail.
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
