The Talkback 96 is a brand new ski for 2015 and is a wider version of the amazing Talkback 88 ski. With a wider waist it has plenty of float for soft snow but with a lightweight construction which ensures it excels hiking up the mountain as well.
All-Terrain Rocker helps lift the Talkback 96 above soft snow dumps and makes turn initiation a whole lot easier. K2 have added a Carbon Web to the Talkback 96 to increase torsional rigidity making it capable of holding a solid edge on hard pack as well. A lightweight Paulownia/Maple core makes the ski less than 1.5kg per pair without bindings making this one of the lightest skis over 90mm on the market. Hybritech sidewall further increases response and durability by blending a cap and sidewall construction into one.
These come with Marker Griffon Demo bindings mounted on a track system allowing them to fit any boot size.
These skis are ex demo. They have had one run on fresh snow and are in almost perfect condition so grab yourself a bargain!
All Terrain Rocker - Traditional camber underfoot gives power, precision and response whilst an extended rocker profile in the nose and tail gives easier turn initiation with optimal soft snow performance
Skin Grommets - Low profile rubber grommets in the skis tip and tail allows you to easily attach a K2 Pre cut skin or transform your skis into a rescue sled
Paulownia/Maple Core - Strong yet lightweight blend of materials
Carbon Web - Gives great torsional strength without adding extra weight
Tapered Tip and Tail - An earlier taper gives a shorter effective edge but without loosing surface area. This makes it ski like a shorter ski but float like a bigger ski
Snophobic Topsheet - A rippled matte effect topsheet prevents snow from building up on the ski and weighing them down
Torsion Box - Gives a strong and rigid construction without adding weight. Changing the blend of materials used allows K2 to optimise this construction for use on all types of skis
Hybritech Sidewall - A blend of a sidewall and cap. The sidewall gives power and response whilst the cap increases durability and reduces vibration
