    Wayback 88 Ski

    The K2 Wayback 88 Ski only adds about two pounds under your foot for an an easier time on the skin track, and it rides remarkably well on the way back to the car. Usually, ultralight skis like the Wayback feel chattery on the downhill, so K2 stiffened the Wayback with the new T3 Titanal Touring Technology. T3 uses a short titanium laminate to drastically amplify the ski's stiffness in ways that most backcountry skis lack. The ski also has a full-length laminate made of fiberglass with carbon stringers for an incredibly stiff flex suitable for firm, steep lines. K2 finished the ski's construction off with damping strips on top of the durable sidewalls to drastically decrease chattering when you're riding firm snow on steep lines at high altitudes.

    With an 88mm waist, this Wayback sits smack dab in the middle of K2's Wayback collection, in terms of width. Its nimble, skinny width rides best on firmer snow and the variable conditions commonly found high up in the alpine. Although best for firmer snow, the All-Terrain Rocker eases turning whenever you find a softer stash on the ride down, and it certainly helps you keep your tips up when you're setting the skin track. The All-Terrain Rocker also has camber underfoot to initiate plenty of edge control down icy chutes and steep aprons.

    Awesome lightweight Backcountry ski!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    These skis are awesome! They are stable and forgiving in pretty much every type of snow. They are stable and likes going fast which was surprising for such a light ski. They are so light that your legs are fresh on the way down!
