A mid-fat waist and a shape that excels in soft snow makes the Wayback 106 your clear choice for when it's deep and weight is a concern, because who wants to trek uphill if the descent is going to be subpar?

K2's Ti Spyne (Titanal Laminate) and snophobic topsheet come together to create unmatched downhill performance while still keeping things light enough for long days on the skin track.

Strapped with Carbon Overdrive and uni-directional carbon fiber integrated into the layups keeps things lightweight and responsive.

Click into the Wayback 106 and you'll be wondering why you've spent so much time waiting in lift lines.

Titanal Touring Technology is based on the premise that going downhill is the priority. As with K2's high-end piste and freeride skis, we’ve incorporated Titanal laminates into the construction of K2's award-winning Wayback and Talkback skis. The weight of K2's touring skis speaks for itself, and we’ll let the smile on your face at the bottom of the run speak to their downhill performance.
