Founded in 1962, K2 is the original American ski manufacturer. In addition to being on the forefront of the American ski industry, K2 was also one of the first manufacturers to develop products built from the ground up for female skiers. With the introduction of the K2 Alliance in 1999, K2 donates a portion of every Alliance product to Boarding for Breast Cancer, totaling over $1 million in total contributions over the last 20 years. 

K2's Wayback/Talkback line combines the lightweight carbon construction we've come to expect from a touring-specific ski, with the power and predictability of a titanal spine. Paired with their freeride-inspired Mindbender boot, K2's touring offerings make for the perfect combo for skiers who charge both uphill and down.
