The Wayback 88 has been redesigned, lightened, and modernzed to appeal to the ski mountaineer or spring ski tourer who places a premium on efficiency. Slight tip and tail taper provide greater ease and versatility than its predecessor, and sidewalls underfoot also improve the edge hold. All-Terrain RockerROCKER: Easy initiation, versatility, agility CAMBER: Control, edge hold, rebound All-Terrain Rocker features an elevated tip for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edge-hold in firmer conditions. Simply put, All-Terrain Rocker offers versatility and ease in all snow conditions.Tapered Tip and TailOur directional Freeride skis are designed with not just a tapered tip, but also a slight amount of taper in the tail. A tapered tip shifts the widest part of the contact further back to reduce tip weight and deflection in soft and variable snow conditions.

  • Since snow collecting on the ski can add pounds to a climb, our SnoPhobic tops keep you light with a new snow-repellent topsheet. The running surface along the bottom of a ski is hydrophobic by design, so we've developed a thinner version of the same material to use on the BackSide model-specific topsheets.
  • Carbon Web: Enveloping the Mod structure with a carbon weave where the strands of carbon are laid at precise angles for an additional level of torsional rigidity on the secondary core. This keeps the ski light but gives you the additional torsional strength where you need it most.
  • New freeride tip and tail grommets are a clean, simple design that no longer requires a plug. The durable rubber coating disguises a slit designed to accommodate both the Z clip for our skin attachments, and the components to build a rescue sled.
