K2 Mindbender 89 Ti Ski 2023Regular price $1,199.00 Save $0.00
When the powder clouds leave for the foreseeable future, the K2 Mindbender 89Ti skis will keep things fun till the next storm hits. With the power of Titanal Y Beams over the edges keep turns feeling consistent no matter what the snow is doing under your feet. Nimble enough to tackle a mogul midfield but can still hold their own on a fresh snow day. These are the ones that put Mindbenders on the map and are up there with the best.
Replacing the 90ti from last year, this ski was reworked by K2 to retain the strengths of the old ski but add smoother turn initiation and a level of responsiveness. The new 2.0 version of Y Beam looks to distribute the weight and strengthening the beam a little differently, closer to the tips and tails of the skis. Couple that with a slightly different rocker profile and you've got a more playful ski and approachable ski than its predecessor. The ski really impressed us when we tested it; it's versatile all-mountain ski for a wide range of NZ skiers.
STYLE: All Mountain
ABILITY: Advanced / Expert
SHAPE: Rocker / Camber / Rocker
PARTIAL TWIN TIP
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.
Aspen – Lightweight and resilient, Aspen is a great all-around core material.
Ti Y-Beam – TCD-optimized shape, placing Titanal directly over the edges in the forebody of the ski for powerful and consistent turn entry in variable and off-piste conditions. Underfoot, the Titanal spans the full width of the ski for maximum power transfer and control. In the tail, the Titanal narrows, tapering to allow the ski to break free on the back end of the turn while still remaining supportive.
PowerWall – Power transfer to the ski's edges is dramatically enhanced with oversized ABS sidewalls that are laminated and pocketed within the wood core in the midbody of the ski.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
