The K2 Mindbender 98Ti Alliance Skis straddle the line between off-piste charger and on-piste carver like few skis can in the ~100mm waist category. With a few inches of snow on the ground, the Mindbender 98ti planes and breaks loose for a super fun and playful ride, and just as quickly can set an edge for a perfectly railed turn back on piste. Quick yet powerful, the K2 Mindbender 98Ti Alliance Skis is as close as you'll get to the proverbial one ski quiver.
All-Terrain Rocker – Skis with All-Terrain rocker have a gradual rise to the tip for great versatility in all conditions, with a short, low rise in the tail for added control variable snow.
Correct Flex – Eliminates the overly stiff, mid-section typically found on shorter length skis, leaving a smooth and consistent flex profile optimized on every size from longest to shortest.
Torsion Control Design – Designed to enhance stability and control in all snow types, Torsion Control Design combines a progressive torsional flex with a balanced and even longitudinal profile. Torsionally stiffest in the forebody and center of the ski, then easing throughout the tail, K2 skis with TCD have both precise, accurate turn initiation and smooth, consistent turn release in all snow types.
Ti Y-Beam – K2’s Ti Y-Beam delivers precision in the forebody of the ski, power under foot and stability in the tail, all while maintaining the maneuverability and drift control needed for freeride ripping. 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.
PowerWall – Power transfer is dramatically enhanced with the 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.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
