Product Info

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.
