Anyone got any good recommendations for cheap skins that would fit K2 Wayback 96s?
I can buy the standard K2 skins, but just wondering if there are any cheap, non-branded alternatives out there that might cost a bit less?
I would go with the K2 skins if you can, they fit spot on out of the box and the front attachment (if it’s the same as older models) is pretty good
i have only ever used Colltex other than then K2 ones, to be fair I don’t think there is such a thing as cheap skins, they all seem a lot of money for what they are.
The K2 skins are pretty good. A BD glidelight mohair mix skin is more durable, glides pretty well and the glue lasts a long time. This is a decent value non K2 option. Depends if you mind the (minor) faff of trimming them to fit...
I think the blue/green gecko skins are amazing. Should be on eBay for about £95. I’ve used them tonnes in a huge variety of conditions.
