Technical info:
Coomback has become wider and apparently a lot lighter. Some of the weight savings seem to have been accomplished with thin steel edges and a thin base, a known feature on touring skis, but not something we’ve come to expect from K2. The flex is stiff, especially in the back. The sidecut is longer in the back than in the front, and there is a long rocker in the front and just a little rocker in the back. Like the other touring skis from K2, it is constructed to prevent snow from sticking to the top sheet.

On snow:
The narrower version of Coomback is not spectacular in any way, but it is a good choice if you are looking for a freeride and ski touring combo. This year's new and wider version gains recognition, but not that much excitement. It does not respond that well. On the other hand, it is easy to control and reliable in its own way. We don’t recommend it as a pure freeriding ski, but the low weight makes it interesting for those who are looking for a wide ski touring option.
