For 2013-14, K2 trims its offering of women's Backside adventure skis to a single model. Only the featherlight Talkback carries forward. It was always the most efficient tourer in the women's adventure collection, with the width (88 mm) and rocker for powder-surfing fun. It's a metal-free, wood-core, women's-specific cap construction, reinforced with carbon fibers and weighing in at just 1,400 grams at 160 cm. 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. The Powder Tip is tapered so it's less easily deflected and swing weight is reduced. Tip and tail hardware is removable, and the holes readily accept pre-cut K2 skins for touring. Its Snowphobic topsheet, which is waxable, sheds snow on the ascent so it doesn't get heavy. The pink ribbon on the base signifies K2's support (at least $50,000 annually) for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
