The K2 Talkback 88 is a picture of efficiency for any advanced female skier. It features the same ultra-light Paulownia/Maple core and Snophobic topsheet as the TalkBack 96, but with a trimmer 88mm waist for practically effortless ascents. The All-Terrain Rocker delivers ease and consistency whether skiing through tight glades or making figure 8’s in untouched powder.
The K2 WayBack 88 is the no-frills, even lighter ECOre version of our uphill warrior, ready and willing to battle anything from wind-buffed hard pack to creamy spring corn. ECOre is built with lightweight, eco-friendly balsa wood and integrated fiber stringers that dampen performance and improve accuracy – K2-crafted for safe, sensational backcountry lines. With fully reliable, fully removable skin hardware, the WayBack 88 is a high-performance backside ski that’s always itching to try new trailheads.
This ski can carve. Traditional Norwegian timber construction with snappy flex.
"I don't know why Åsnes named this ski V20. Maybe It's because it has such a big engine. The V20 was ready to run all day long. Although it didn't make anyones top ski of the day, it was a consistent second or third pick on a lot of score sheets in the GS category. It's a very balanced ski with a large sweet spot and an even, medium flex all of which means that it's a very comfortable, confidence-inspiring ski to ride. It's easy to initiate in short and long turns, as well as being butter smooth and silky at high speeds, according to Eric, our hard skiing patrolman. Several other testers added that as hard as they tried to rattle the V20 at speeds, they couldn't get the ski to chatter and it never felt like you were on the highway with the windows open. The big shovel also meant that the V20 was more than competent everywhere on the mountain, with a propensity to really stick a long, damp GS Turn." - Couloir Magazine
