K2’s All-New BackSide Collection Delivers Unparalleled Backcountry Versatility

By: Verde Brand Communications
 
SEATTLE - Jan. 21, 2014 - PRLog -- Leading the way in ski design, K2 (http://k2skis.com) Skis has completely reinvented its backcountry specific skis. With an emphasis on performance while maintaining lightweight construction, K2 has developed a groundbreaking line of touring skis. From month-long high altitude international expeditions to brief outings in backyard powder stashes, the diehard backcountry skier is covered.

The BackSide collection builds upon backcountry-specific Baseline 2.0 top shape and profile designs that include new tapered tips and tails with increasing amounts of rocker as each ski in the line gets wider for predictability in all types of snow conditions encountered outside the resort boundaries. The tails in the collection are still designed flat to act as functional snow anchors and tip/tail grommets that guarantee centered skin adhesion. The market-leading ski collection also features K2’s new Snophobic topsheet, a nylon-based weave that prohibits the buildup of heavy snow on the top of the ski to conserve precious energy while ascending.

All these features and more are found on the newly updated, versatile and lighter weight WayBack series. Offered in 88 and 96 cm waist widths, these skis are the de facto choice for adventurers who aren’t afraid of multi-day alpine explorations.
