The Curated Take
The K2 Mindbender 99Ti skis are ideal for advanced, expert skiers seeking a versatile, high-performance option. These skis excel in all-mountain conditions, offering stability at high speeds, powerful carving ability, and maneuverability in various terrains. The Y-shaped titanal core provides exceptional grip and responsiveness, while the rocker profile enhances turn initiation and release. The skis offer durability, easy turning, and great value compared to similar models. The 99Ti is for those who want a dependable, all-conditions ski that confidently handles everything from groomers to powder.
- Very stable at high speeds with good dampening
- Quick turning radius that's really fun to lay over and carve
- Maneuverability in trees and bumps
- Versatile to all-mountain and a variety of conditions from hardpack to powder
- Not a playful ski to butter and smear around—too burly and directional to do well in the park
- Geared toward advanced skiers, so progressing beginners and intermediates may feel overpowered
- Topsheet tends to have a few curls and material peels off the edges but avoids significant chipping
