K2 TalkBack Skis - Women’s 2012: The K2 TalkBack Skis don’t like the crowded resort scene. Keep this feisty girl happy by taking her for a long walk and she’ll reward you with her ultralight core and carbon web stability for a whole day of backcountry adventure. The All-Terrain Rocker™ shovel makes breaking trail a breeze and skiing mixed conditions even easier. Despite the name, it will be you that is capable of going up and down all day, not the K2 TalkBack’s mood.
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.
Tip/Tail Hardware - removable plugs reveal holes that can be used to attach K2 Pre-Cut Skins or build a rescue sled
Powder Tip tapers early to avoid hooking.
SnoPhobic Topsheets keep the ski light with a snow-repellent top
Bio Core: a unique blend of Aspen, Paulownia, and Bamboo has a consistent density, great strength-to-weight ration, and fast-growth carbon-sequestration. The result is 15% weight savings over traditional cores and a decreased carbon footprint.
Torsion Box construction gives the ski ease, forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy.
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.
|Tip Width (mm)||124||124||124|
|Waist Width (mm)||88||88||88|
