K2’s Mindbender Freeride Collection

Today K2 Skis announced their new Mindbender freeride ski collection.

K2 decided to focus on what is important – not as a manufacturer, but as skiers. So they let their engineers go wild, build their dream rides. And what they came back with? Well, the ALL-NEW Mindbender Collection. 12 freeride skis – 6 men’s models, 6 women’s models – tailored and targeted to kick up dust, blast pow, and knife on hardpack. They built the dream whips you wish you already had.

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, they 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.

K2 Canada is releasing the 90 and 99 at select retailers now, with the wider 108 and 116 powder oriented ski’s being available for next Fall. The Mindbender’s replace K2’s legendary Pinnacle Series. Have a blast!
