Product Info

Of course fat skis rip in pow, but they’re also heavier and therefore a pain to lug around the backcountry. Raise the curtain and reveal the K2 BackDrop Skis. This new quiver killer has the superlight construction of the WayBack but with the waist fattened to 112mm and shovel rocker increased. So whether you’re looking to go touring, play in the resort, slay powder, or let’s say… all of these, then the BackDrop is your new partner in crime.

Product Details

Shape

All-Terrain Rocker™Designed for all snow conditions, featuring an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance and camber underfoot for power, energy, and edgehold in firmer conditions.

Powder TipPulls the widest point of the tip further down the ski, which retains float in soft snow, and also minimizes deflection in adverse snow conditions.

Construction

Fir/Aspen/Maple CoreSolid and dense woods known for their inherent strength and durability. Maple adds durability and power.

Triaxial BraidingConsists of braiding fiberglass around the wood core to provide torsional rigidity for added control, making the ski incredibly energetic and responsive.

Carbon WebPushes the balance between weight and strength gaining downhill performance without adding additional mass. Located in the tail and fore body of the ski, the Carbon Web increases edge grip when you need it most in the backcountry.

Cap ConstructionA durable, lightweight, and softer construction.

Additional Features

SnoPhobic TopsheetsShed snow off your skis to keep them light when skinning. Applying wax to these P-tex topsheets increases their snow shedding performance.

Tip/Tail HardwareVastly 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 ArcThe 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.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.
