Amongst much hype the all NEW Mindbender line drops for 2019 in New Zealand. Sports car feel, big mountain appeal. Some say it's too wide, some say it's too narrow, but that's all noise. Skiers who push the Mindbender 108Ti quickly become accustomed to skiing big lines faster and more aggressively than they ever have before.
No customer profile, no focus groups, no deep analysis of what wins magazine tests. K2 simply set out to make the skis they wanted to make. Skis that would let them push freeriding in new directions and make it goddamn more fun. Speed is fun.So it's smearing, slashing and ripping with your friends.
So here is the all-new Mindbender Freeride collection. It includes skis and boots - men's and women's models.K2 used plenty of science and high-level design in their creation, but in the end it was their gut that drove them. Because it isn't the reason that drives us to ski. It's expensive, dangerous, cold, makes us skip days at work, and sleep in parking lots. It's not smart, but we love it and these skis and boots make us love it even more.
Bend your mind around that.

All-Terrain Rocker Designed for all ability levels, All-Terrain Rocker adds versatility and ease in all snow conditions. This profile features an elevated tip and tail for variable and soft snow performance, as well as camber underfoot for power, energy, and edgehold in firmer conditions.
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.
Core - Maple Energetic, tough, dense wood that absorbs impact.
Aspen Lightweight and resilient, great all-around material.
Carbon Spectral Braid - K2's second offering within our Torsion Control Design philosophy. A variable angle braiding process that allows for variation in the torsion and flex by altering the fiber orientation along the ski. (Patent Pending)
