K2 Talkback 88 2016

Alpine Ski K2 Talkback 88

Ski sold without binding.

Note: The colour of the bases may be different from the picture displayed on the website, manufacturers combine colours randomly.

No need to worry, the 88mm waist isn't a bad thing and won't slow you down. K2 made sure the ski would carry you above powder' surface by giving it a wide underfoot platform, but they also made sure it wouldn't make the ski heavier. So they worked hard to design a light paulownia and maple core and combined it with an All Terrain rocker enhancing manoeuverability and ease of use. The Hybritech sidewalls ensure an optimal edge control in critical situations and allow you to reach new spots and enjoy the mountain more than you ever did.  

  

What our testers say : This is a great touring partner for women skiers with an advanced level. The lightweight and width of the ski offer a great compromise between support and fatigue. The snappy construction delivers enjoyable downhill performance with a great floatability. The ski feels comfortable and precise, suited for aspiring skiers willing to discover the mountain.

Structure - Construction

  • Carbon Web  :

    The Mod structure is wrapped by carbon fiber. The carbon stringers are oriented with a precise angle in order to increase resistance to torsion on the secondary core. That delivers a lighter ski that will stay solid against torsion where it's needed.

  • Hybritech sidewalls  :

    This wider-waisted construction combines the accuracy and power performance of sidewall underfoot with the lightweight and smooth turn initiation of cap construction. Offered exclusively on the Side series, Hybritech makes skis strong, accurate and powerful underfoot, while maintaining smooth initiation and easy exits from turns.

  • Paulownia/Maple core

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.

Technology

  • All-Terrain Rocker  :

    All-Terrain Rocker features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions. 

    Simply put, All-Terrain Rocker offers versatility and ease in all snow conditions.

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.

Various

  • Skin clip Arc  :

    The tails of our Adventure skis come with a concave notch to ensure the skin clip, regardless of size, stays securely centered on the tail.

  • Snophobic Top Sheets  :

    Since snow collecting on the ski can add pounds to a climb, our SnoPhobic tops keeps you light with a new snow-repellent topsheet. The running surface along the bottom of a ski is hydrophobic by design, so we’ve developed a thinner version of the same material to use on the BackSide model-specific topsheets.
