K2 Talkback 88 Skis - Women's 2015

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.
Rocker Type
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.
Flex
Medium flex
Shape
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.
Core
Paulownia / Maple - The solid strength of Maple and the incomparable lightness of Paulownia, together again
Laminates
Torsion box construction
 
Carbon Web - Strands of carbon fiber are woven in the fiberglass weave that surrounds the core
Sidewalls
Hybritech Sidewalls - A blend of sidewall and cap constructions that enables a very light ski without sacrificing edgehold
Additional Features
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.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Flat
    Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
