2020 K2 MINDBENDER 99ti Freeride Skis
Quick edge-to-edge? Check. Absurd float in pow? Oh you bet. You might be surprised to hear that this ski only clocks in at 99 underfoot – it definitely hits above it’s weight. Toss in that Y-Beam and you’ll be wondering where the speed limit on this thing really is.

Torsion Control Design
At the core of the Mindbender Collection is the Torsion Design Control Design Philosophy. It's a notion that edge grip and driftability don't have to be mutually exclusive. So from that, we developed two tech solutions intended to create skis that initiate and grip through the forebody, without sacrificing the ability to drift and cut free on the backend.
So what does that mean for your everyday on-hill skiing? These freaks are built to blast but won't let you down when you get in over your head and have to shut 'er down.
Titanal Y-Beam Technology
Our First tech solution is Titanal Y-Beam. With strategically designed Titanal geometry, the Y-Beam tunes torsional flex without affecting longitudinal flex. This delivers the highest level of precision and stability in a damp, stable platform.
Titanal Y-Beam can be found in the Mindbender 108ti, 99ti, 90ti, Alliance 98ti, Alliance 88ti.
Carbon Spectral Braid Technology
A variable angle carbon fiber laminate allows the torsional and longitudinal stiffness to be adjusted independently. This construct keeps skis lighter and more playful for conditions when power and damping are less important.
Carbon Spectral Braid can be found in the Mindbender 116c, Alliance 115c, Alliance 106c, 90c, Alliance 90c, 85c, and Alliance 85c.
