When soft snow is in short supply, turn to the K2 Mindbender 89Ti men’s freeride ski. Although its built with the same Titanal Y-Beam construction and All-Terrain Rocker profile as its other metal-reinforced Mindbender siblings, the 89Ti stands apart thanks to a narrower waist width. The result is a ski that has the precision edge hold you need to dominate the hard pack, but is still wide enough for forays into the ungroomed.
Titanal has long been used in high-end skis and is known for providing a damp, stable ride at high speeds and on variable terrain, but our Y-Beam technology takes things a step further with dramatically enhanced performance tuning. Refined for the 2022 collection, these Y-shaped prongs set over the edges in the shovel of the ski provide precise, powerful turn initiation, while the narrower metal shape in the tail of the ski provides the support you need for charging while still remaining maneuverable, forgiving, and easy to break free from turns.
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.
