The K2 Talkback 88 Skis are the perfect choice for a women's spring and summer touring setup - light, solid on hard snow and versatile in any kind of soft stuff. A light but burly Paulownia and Maple core, Torsion Box construction, and HybriTech Sidewalls let you stomp the climb and shred the descent foot after vertical foot.
All-Terrain Rocker Designed 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.
Backside Baseline 2.0 Low-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.
Paulownia / Maple The solid strength of Maple and the incomparable lightness of Paulownia, together again
Torsion Box Construction Torsion Box construction is the foundation for the widest range of skis designed by K2. Depending on the dimensions of a ski, and the amount of flex and torsion designed into it, one model of a Torsion Box ski can differ greatly from another. The versatility in the construction enables K2 to build everything from entry-level through expert skis. While there will be significant differences between skis, they do share the common traits of ease, forgiveness, responsiveness, and energy that can be found in all Torsion Box skis.
Carbon Web Strands of carbon fiber are woven in the fiberglass weave that surrounds the core
Hybritech Sidewalls A blend of sidewall and cap constructions that enables a very light ski without sacrificing edgehold
SnoPhobic Topsheet A special nylon-based topsheet material sheds snow - no need to drag any more weight uphill than necessary!
K2 Skin Grommets Built in tip and tail attachments for K2 skins give you the lightest and cleanest skin system available.
