Manufacturers description
The 2010-11 K2 BackLash strikes the perfect balance for those seeking a resort-worthy ski that’s light enough for all-day tours. A 92 mm waist, superlight wood core, and cap construction combine with the smooth dampness of metal to deliver the versatility to tackle hard or soft conditions on either side of the rope. We’ve added All-Terrain shovel rocker this year to the BackLash Adventure ski which broaden its sweet spot and increase its versatility. And the progressive 16/14 sidecut supplies edge-hold and precision in a variety of turn shapes and conditions regardless of whether you’re dropping your knee or locking your heels.

smooth, good edge hold, predictable

A little heavy for touring

I love them for all around skiing. But use them for side country, not long tours (weight)

Slightly fluttery at high speed. Pretty soft but nice forest slice as it was lightweight and simple. Building quality was nothing further. The ski did not even hold the whole season.

Fairly nice skis, though, were a bit thin for my needs. In addition, the gandka was soft and not as lively as the Coomback, which I would NOT recommend. The quality of this ski was not very good, which was found to be broken / bend in a regular case in a piste already during the season. K2 refused to take into account the same thing, meaning that I destroyed the skis. But honestly, skis that do not even stand for a simple fall in a piste, without a drop, stone or the like, are NOT reliable enough to take a break other than just a piste. And in the piste there are really more fun skis than this.

Do not buy! Poor quality and worthless response from K2. I will never buy a K2 skid again!
