Product Info

If you're a sucker for type 2 fun, you might just be a sucker for the K2 Wayback 88 Skis. Lightweight core construction is boosted with Carbon Overdrive and Ti Spyne laminates, making these backcountry beauties easygoing on the skin track but confident when pointed downhill: just what you need when the Spring melt has made your couloir objective a little spicier than usual.

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.


Tapered Tip/TailA design feature that shifts the contact points with the snow towards the midsole of the ski, reducing deflection in the tip and easing turn release in the tail.


PaulowniaLively, flexible wood with excellent weight to strength ratio.


Ti SpyneA Titanal laminate developed specifically for K2 touring skis that dramatically increases dampening and predictability on lightweight carbon constructions, while enhancing stability and edge grip.

Carbon OverdriveTop secret construction using carbon fiber to make a ski even more awesome than if it did not have carbon fiber.


Snowphobic TopsheetHydrophobic, snow-shedding topsheet material that helps prevent snow from sticking to the tops of your skis.

Additional Features

Skin GrommetsReinforced grommets in the tip and tail of the ski that both accommodate K2's pre-cut skins with a Z-clip attachment, and can be used with K2/BCA shovels to build a rescue sled.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
