The BackDrop is built for optimized downhill performance for powder-seeking freeriders who want maximum float and aren't afraid to lug a 112-mm waist on short-to-medium backcountry forays. The use of paulownia in the core keeps the weight to 1820 grams. All K2 Backside models are lightweight cap constructions on wood cores, with carbon and fiberglass reinforcement. K2's All-Terrain Rocker combines 70 percent camber with 30 percent tip/shovel rocker to smooth the ride, enhance forgiveness and improve soft-snow flotation. Snowphobic topsheets are chemically treated to shed snow that would otherwise add weight on ascents. All Backside skis have removeable tip and tail grommets for easy attachment of K2 Z-Clip climbing skins. In addition to skins, K2 offers a full line of backcountry equipment: probes, shovels, ski-carry packs, adjustable poles and even a shovel/ice-axe combo tool. Skin choices include economical nylon or easier-gliding mohair/nylon blend, and are available either trim-to-fit (cutting tool included) or precut to fit some K2 models.
