K2 Wayback 96
That's right, there is metal in K2's touring skis! It's long been thought that building a lightweight ski meant sacrificing downhill performance. The Wayback 96 is here to shatter that stereotype. Built using K2's T3 construction, the Wayback incorporates a metal laminate into a lightweight constriction thus creating an extremely versatile ski. All the edge grip, stability and downhill performance you come to expect from a ski with metal, in a sub-1400 g package. The comfort and ease for multi-day hit tours and the confidence and precision for steep skiing objectives :)
