Description & Specs

En tant que ski le plus large dans la gamme randonnée pour femmes, le Talkback 96 est le ski à privilégier lorsque la neige est profonde et stable dans le backcountry. Comme le reste de la gamme Backside, nous avons voulu conserver un poids minimum pour vous permettre d’aller toujours plus loin et toujours plus vite, donc nous avons utilisé notre noyau Tour Lite en paulownia pour le rendre plus dynamique et vif. Bien que le poids soit un critère important sur le 96, nous voulions également construire un ski qui offre les mêmes sensations qu’un ski alpin, avec une conduite précise et stable en descente. C’est pourquoi nous avons ajouté du Titanal et du carbone pour rigidifier le flex sans sacrifier la vivacité d’un ski plus souple. Le résultat final est très satisfaisant : vos ascensions seront plus faciles et vos descentes précises et confiantes.

Technology

  • Touring Technology

    For over 20 years, K2 has been working with guides and athletes to build the best backcountry skis on the market. This year is no different. Our team of guides were tasked with testing and setting the stage for the Touring Series redesign. From North & South America to the Alps and Norway, these skis have seen it all.

    This year’s completely re-engineered Wayback line sets a new standard for backcountry skis; we’ve reduced ski weights significantly without sacrificing the downhill performance skiers expect from K2’s touring skis. The new Waybacks aim to inspire you to reach further and seek out your ‘best run ever’ each and every day.

  • Ti SpYne

    First of its kind, 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 Overdrive

    Top secret construction using carbon fiber to make a ski even more awesome than if it did not have carbon fiber. Radness levels achieved are difficult to quantify. Product of area '62.

  • Snowphobic Topsheet

    Hydrophobic, snow-shedding top material that helps prevent snow from sticking to the tops of your skis.

  • Skin Grommets

    Fully removable plug to accommodate K2’s pre-cut skins with a Z-clip skin attachment and can be used with K2 Shovels to build a rescue sled.
