The any-day, any-conditions touring ski.
The all-new Wayback 98 is the most universal tool in the Wayback collection. Narrow enough for a spring tour but wide enough to navigate variable conditions.

Featuring K2's Titanal Touring Tech and All Terrain Rocker, a gradual rise in the tip for great versatility in all conditions, with a low, short rise in the tail for added control in variable snow. K2 redefines the standard for lightweight and high-performance touring skis in the Wayback 98.

Titanal Touring Technology is based on the premise that going downhill is the priority. As with our high-end piste and freeride skis, we’ve incorporated Titanal laminates into the construction of our award-winning Wayback and Talkback skis. The weight of our 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.
