Le Wayback 80 est une nouveauté pour cette saison : nous sommes partis d’une feuille blanche dans le but de concevoir un ski qui combinerait le niveau de performance légendaire des skis K2 en descente avec un poids plume. Grâce à son Titanal Spyne et son noyau Ultra Lite, le Wayback 80 est le ski de rando rapide, léger et haute performance que vous attendiez depuis longtemps. Il est compatible avec les nouvelles peaux pré-coupées Wayback 80 qui permettent de passer du mode ascension au mode descende plus rapidement que tout autre solution sur le marché.

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.

  • Snowphobic Topsheet

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

  • 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.

  • 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.
