Product Info

K2 s Backside Collection goes deep this year with the new K2 Coomback 114 Skis. With a born-to-float 140-114-118 profile, this ski eats pow, mank and breakable crust like a backcountry skier downs GUs and keeps coming up for more. A lightness optimized Paulownia and Maple core means this ski still tours like a champ, and K2 Skin Grommets open the way to the lightest and lowest profile skin attachment system in the biz. We can't resist; this ski will have you Coom-ing back for more.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All-Terrain RockerDesigned for all ability levels, All-Terrain Rocker adds versatility and ease in all snow conditions. This profile features an elevated tip and tail for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edgehold in firmer conditions.

Flex

Medium Flex

Shape

Backside Baseline 2.0Low-rise tip with a gradual rocker profile and medium to low camber are ideal for variable snow conditions. A slight taper at both tip and tail let the ski track easily while skinning and allow racking your skis in your pack without hangups.

Powder TipDesigned to be more predictable in soft snow conditions, these tips are designed to strike the perfect balance of maximizing float while reducing tip deflection. These tips are designed with a gentle arc and transition into the sidecut of the ski.

Directional TaperModerately wider tip than tail maximizes the skis performance in the forward direction.

Core

Paulownia / MapleThe solid strength of Maple and the incomparable lightness of Paulownia, together again

Torsion Box Construction

Carbon WebStrands of carbon fiber are woven in the fiberglass weave that surrounds the core

    Comments about K2 Coomback 114 Skis 2016:

    Great skis, lightweight considering the dimensions/size of them (which helps on the climb), but still sturdy and strong enough to not get tossed about. It's a 114 waist ski with plenty of rocker, so obviously tip chatter on groom/hardpack is going to be an issue. But ski this in variable or powder and you won't be disappointed. I have gotten 5 days in so far on this ski and can't wait for more.

    Comments about K2 Coomback 114 Skis 2016:

    Nice light ski, powerful yet fairly playful. Tip thickness lends itself to be chattery on firm hardpack New England groomers. Added tail rocker helps the ski settle into powder over previous models. Topsheet is a different material than previous models which is a plus as my 2013 coombacks' topsheet was very soft and scratch able.
