  • The Mindbender series from K2 are all new for 2019/20. The Mindbender 98Ti Alliance is one great hard charging women's freeride ski. With it's Titanal Y-Beam core adding torsional rigidity this ski will dig in then the conditions get rough while maintaining an even flex.

    The Mindbender's have gone back to a more traditional shape similar to K2's Anthem series of ski's. If you've only ever used a piste ski you could jump on a pair of Mindbender's and understand how they work making them a really versatile freeride ski.

    Despite being a freeride ski the Torsion Control Design and the full sidewall construction still provides excellent edge hold on piste.

    The Correct Flex core is designed specifically for women, eliminates the overly stiff, mid-section typically found on shorter length skis, leaving a smooth and consistent flex profile optimised on every size from longest to shortest.

    Features

    • K2 Alliance, Women making kick-ass ski’s! - The K2 Alliance has always been at the forefront of developing the most badass women’s specific skis and they’ve done it again with their latest collection incorporating the all-new BIOkonic technology. The goal for the Alliance was to create a collection of skis designed from the ground up to specifically address the needs of female skiers of every level, type, and size; delivering the appropriate balance of performance attributes all while maintaining accessibility for a wide group of skiers. K2’s Alliance and R&D crew has taken a Women’s First Design approach to the development of BIOkonic technology. The concept is simple, taking the BIOlogical approach to how women ski. It doesn’t mean just taking a men’s ski and moving the mounting point forward; it’s a holistic approach to the overall design of the ski, matching the shape, flex profile and material distribution to the needs of female skiers. Moreover, BIOkonic technology allows K2 to optimize these attributes throughout all sizes of each model, ensuring that all women can benefit from BIOkonic.
    • 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.
    • PowerWall - Power transfer is dramatically enhanced with the oversized ABS sidewalls that are laminated and pocketed within the wood core in the mid-body 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.
    • 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 manoeuvrability 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.
    • Aspen Veneer Core - Aspen is a lightweight and resilient, great all-around material.

      Ski Bindings

      Buy ski's and bindings together and get 10% off RRP on the bindings*. Discount is automatically applied at the checkout. *Excludes sale bindings.

      Bindings are mounted for FREE, just add this item to your basket with your mounting details.

      You can't ski without bindings. To a certain extent bindings are bindings and although there are some performance differences between them the biggest change is the materials. Cheaper bindings tend to be made with lots of plastic, where as more expensive ones have more metal in their construction. More metal makes the binding stronger, more durable and will last longer. If you change your ski's in the future you can then transfer the bindings to them, it's worth spending a little more on bindings if you can.

      When selecting a binding choose a binding with a brake that is min 5mm wider than the waist of the ski.
