An encore tribute to the CoomBack legacy, the CoomBack 114 Backcountry Ski now features sidewall construction underfoot for solid edge hold on firm snow while still being light and playful in powder.
The K2 Coomback 114 Ski is a new take on a classic, much-loved ski. At 114 it's a bit wider underfoot than previous iterations, meaning you're going to get even more of that surfy feel you love on those deep days. Full sidewalls underfoot give this ski incredible edge control for something this wide, while the tip and tail rocker, as well as the rocker in front, all add up to a ski that is surprisingly agile and playful for something of this size. And even though it's certainly not of the "skinny-ski" variety, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find the paulownia and maple wood core to be fairly lightweight when you're hitting that skintrack for your fourth dawn patrol of the week. To ensure both torsional rigidity and durability, K2 added a torsion box in the core as well as the Hybritech sidewalls, so you won't have to worry about things getting squirrelly or blowing out an edge when you're doing mach-looney down a big line. When you get back to base camp at the end of the day, exhausted from a long day of trekking, jam the flat tails into the snow and hang your wet baselayers up to dry on your impromptu clothesline.
The legacy of Doug Coombs lives on in this fully redesigned La Grave edition of the K2 Coomback. At 104mm underfoot, the new backside ski features tip and tail taper, sidewalls underfoot and increased Rocker. Building on the CoomBack legacy, the new CoomBack 104 has increased ease, versatility and edge hold than it's predecessor.

The COOMBAck is the first of a three part graphic series, each celebrating a different era of Doug?s ski career. Coombs cut his teeth on the steep, narrow chutes of Bridger bowl, before moving to Jackson Hole to hone his technique. The 102mm waist and All-Terrain Rocker create a balance between float and agility reflective of Doug?s versatility, and make the COOMBAck equally adept making tram laps or climbing the Ford-Stettner route on the Grand Teton. * K2 will donate a percentage of all COOMBAck ski sales to Doug?s family, and another portion of the proceeds will fund the American Mountain Guide Association?s Chad Vanderham Endowment, which is focused on improving guide education and safety.
