K2 Talkback 96 Skis - Women's 2020

Zoom up the skintrack and power through the downhill with the K2 Talkback 96 Skis. These are the widest skis in the K2 women's touring lineup, and you bet they can handle the high powder volume you're searching for. But they aren't a one-trick pony, underfoot camber holds a sturdy and reliable edge on firm snow while rockered tips keep you nimble in the deep and unpredictable. Powered by a light and flexible Paulownia core and reinforced with a Titanal spine and carbon construction, the K2 Talkback 96 Skis are as lightweight as they are strong, so you can tear through turns on the way down with the same vigor you had on the way up.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All-Terrain RockerDesigned for all ability levels, All-Terrain Rocker adds versatility and ease in all snow conditions. This profile features an elevated tip and tail for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edgehold in firmer conditions.

Shape

Tapered Tip/TailA design feature that shifts the contact points with the snow towards the midsole of the ski, reducing deflection in the tip and easing turn release in the tail.

Core

PaulowniaLively, flexible wood with excellent weight to strength ratio.

Laminates

Ti SpyneA Titanal laminate developed specifically for K2 touring skis that dramatically increases dampening and predictability on lightweight carbon constructions, while enhancing stability and edge grip.

Carbon OverdriveTop secret construction using carbon fiber to make a ski even more awesome than if it did not have carbon fiber.

Graphics

Snowphobic TopsheetHydrophobic, snow-shedding topsheet material that helps prevent snow from sticking to the tops of your skis.

Additional Features

Skin GrommetsReinforced grommets in the tip and tail of the ski that both accommodate K2's pre-cut skins with a Z-clip attachment, and can be used with K2/BCA shovels to build a rescue sled.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Marker Kingpin 10 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings 2020

When it comes to tech bindings you can use for daily skiing, the Marker Kingpin 10 Alpine Touring Ski Bindings still rule the roost. Light enough for adventurous touring but tough enough to slap on your daily drivers, the Kingpin 10 simply gets the job done with a weight of only 758 grams per foot. In addition, the power transmission with the spring-loaded Kingpin heel unit is a an improvement you'll feel over the traditional twin-pin tech heel connection. A favorite of hard charging backcountry types and working snow professionals. *Please Note: These bindings have updated toe pieces from Marker and are not affected by the August, 2018 recall.*

Product Details

Toe

Kingpin ToeThe PinTech design on the KingPin toe piece promotes an ergonomic rolling up the foot and the most direct possible connection to the ski. Six steel springs capture the energy optimally, up to a DIN setting of 13. Individually adjustable positioning blocks make it quick and easy to step in no matter what the conditions.

Updated ToeThese bindings have updated toe pieces from Marker and are not affected by the August, 2018 recall.

Heel

Kingpin HeelThe revolutionary heel construction for the PinTech bindings features wide sole contact points to deliver the kind of direct, lossless power transfer more frequently seen in alpine bindings.

Tour Mode

Kingpin Climbing Aid | 0° / 7° / 13°Good climbing aids have one thing in common: Whatever the situation, they can be operated by feel, even when the skier can't see them clearly. Simplicity is a virtue here, and reduced exertion is even better. The KINGPIN wins hearts and minds through two integrated climbing aids (7° and 13°) that are easily deployed or stowed using the basket of the pole. They can also be operated conveniently using the tip of the pole, allowing them to work with any basket style. Because the climbing aids are positioned in the upper center of the heel piece, they are always easy to reach.

Walk / Ski ModesThe refined locking/unlocking procedure for the heel piece is part of the binding's charm. It takes just one step to switch from walk to ski mode: Simply flip a lever, push down on the heel and you're good to go. The mechanism works even in critical situations and challenging descents.

Boot Compatibility

One Size Fits AllBoots with tech toe fittings are required.
