Product Info

K2 supersizes the popular Wayback with the K2 Wayback 96 Skis, bumped up to 96 mm in the waist, to appeal to powder-loving personalities who insist on earning their turns. Sound like you? Take a look: Light but not nervous at 1550 grams per ski, powder hungry but not allergic to the harder variety with its All Terrain Rocker and Hybritech Sidewalls, and set up to accept the slick K2 Z-Clip skin system right out of the box. What more do you want?

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.


Medium Flex


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.

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


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


Hybritech SidewallsA blend of sidewall and cap constructions that enables a very light ski without sacrificing edgehold.

Additional Features
