Here's what other sites are saying:

The K2 TalkBack Skis are featherweight women's touring skis with a 108 mm waist that are as adept going up as they are descending virgin backcountry pow. All-Terrain Rocker (30% tip rocker, 70% camber) features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions. Progressive Sidecut makes for wicked turns on hardpack. SnoPhobic Topsheet collects less snow, thus less fatigue. Carbon Web lightens the spin-weight. Torsion Box, Cap Construction, BioFlex2 Core are fun and durable. ZCLIP Skin Compatible with Skin Grommets for quicker switchovers. The K2 TalkBack womens backcountry skis are perfect all-around touring skis. Sizes: 153, 160. Dimensions: 124 / 88 / 108 mm. Binding Options: No binding. Radius: 18 m (size 160).

Why lug up an extra couple pounds on each foot just to ride a ski that's going to be entirely comparable to the extremely lightweight K2 Women's Talkback 88 Ski' Built with light weight in mind, this 88mm-waisted ski will let you quickly ascend the track and still ski like a champ on the way down. The all-terrain rocker is designed with the backcountry-enthusiast in mind. The flat tail allows this ski to be plunged into the snow to be used as an anchor for belaying. Though not wide by modern-ski standards, the powder-inspired tip taper lets you float and surf your way through deep snow, or crash through mank just as easily. The Hybritech sidewall construction ensures that this ski can handle the abuse you're sure to throw at it throughout the season.


Very similar to her brother, the WayBack 96, the K2 Talback 96 is an all-condition backcountry touring female counterpart that's built with a lightweight Paulownia/Maple construction. It now comes with adept sidewalls for trusted performance in unpredictable conditions, but glides through early morning fresh tracks like a dream.

Built with lightweight wood cores and powerful sidewalls, the K2 TalkBack 96 Backcountry Skis glide beautifully through early morning fresh tracks and plow through less desirable conditions.
