The K2 Mindbender 99 Ti is a super versatile Freeride All-mountain ski. These skis are nimble, have plenty of float in deep snow and can also go full throttle through chopped terrain. The combination of shape, rockers and a Titanal Y-shaped plate in the core make the Mindbender super versatile. The Mindbender 99 TI is a ski that suits skiers looking for a high-performance ski for all over the mountain.
Rocker Camber Small Rise
Skis with a rocker in the tip, camber in the middle and a small rise in the tail are very versatile. The ski is easy to turn, and the camber under the foot gives the ski grip on harder snow. The tail is slightly raised, but it is not a like full rocker. This makes for a balanced combination of easy turning and carving, without compromising on stability.
Directional Shape The tip in this ski is softer than the tail. This makes it easy to turn, while the stiffer tail provides stability and control when steering the turn.
Woodcore The core consists of specifically selected wood types that are laminated in different compositions into a solid core. This gives the designers control over all the characteristics of the ski.
K2’s Ti Y-Beam delivers precision in the front of the ski, power underfoot and stability in the tail, while maintaining the maneuverability and drift control needed for freeride ripping. The precision cut titanal in a ‘Y’ shape alters the torsional stiffness of the ski while maintaining a balanced, even flex pattern that delivers power in a controlled manner throughout the length of the ski.
Power transfer is enhanced with oversized ABS sidewalls that are laminated and pocketed within the wood core in the midbody of the ski. With the sidewall extending into the heart of the ski, the transmission of energy from skier to ski edge is direct and precise.
