Take it deep.
There's a lot of backcountry to explore, so rather than wasting time, just slap on the pre-cut K2 Wayback/Talkback 88 Skins and hit the track. The mohair and nylon blend offers the ideal combination of glide, grip, and durability, while the self-centering Z-clip tip attachment and adjustable tail strap make sure your skins will stay secure when you're punching it up the ridge or switchbacking until your legs feel like they're going to fall off.

- Q & A
Sticky, easy to handle
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My wife has used it once for an overnight trip. The skin sticks very well with a heavy pack on a moderate slope (blue-blackish run, 30 degrees). The tension is continuously adjustable, unlike the BD skins. The only minor nuance is there is no way to tuck in the tail strap. It's rather not functional and the only person who would notice is the person behind you.
Where can I find the metal part for the tail clip? Mine popped in June on my backsides and the closest thing I've found is the BD sts tail strap replacement. Would that work?
Does backcountry not carry skins for the 181 wayback 88 skis? Thanks!
Unfortunately it looks like we've sold out of the 181, and we don't have any more ordered to come in at this time. Sorry about that!
