K2 Wayback 88


Tested in the Alps, the Himalaya, and above the Arctic Circle, the all new Wayback 88 is guide tested and guide approved. Built using our T3 construction, adding a Ti SpYne to the Paulownia Tour Lite core, and reinforced with carbon overdrive, the Wayback 88 is the most confidence inspiring touring ski we've ever made. Built to tackle the descent as well as it effortlessly cruises on the ascent; at an unbelievably low weight of 1270g (174cm), the K2 Wayback 88 continues to set the bar in touring ski performance.

Ski of the Year - 2019 SkiAlper Buyer's Guide

“The brand new lightweight construction of the Wayback meets the most widespread expectations in classic touring and is the perfect tool for difficult descents that require impeccable behaviour. Whether it’s difficult snow or slopes or steep lines, the Wayback 88 is, in our opinion, the ski that can help the greatest number of ski-mountaineers to climb efficiently and ski down everything that can be thrown at them. It is no longer the elastic and round Wayback from before and is geared towards stronger skiers although it will stay enjoyable for less aggressive skiers”
