The K2 Mindbender 85 Skis are the 85mm waisted ski in K2's Mindbender Series. The Mindbender 85's are designed for the intermediate skier who is looking to expand their skills into off-piste terrain. Featuring a rocker-camber profile, these skis will float easily in powder and ski over any snow condition. The camber extends mostly through the tail with a little bit of rocker at the end. This tail design works to propel the skier forward at the end of a turn while still allowing the skier to release the tails easily when navigating tight terrain. A uniform aspen wood core keeps the skis lightweight and energetic and K2's Slantwall construction makes the skis feel very agile underfoot without sacrificing any power.
- Rocker-Camber Profile – K2's "All-Terrain Rocker" features rockered tips for float off-piste and camber underfoot for excellent carving performance.
- Aspen Core – Aspen is a lightweight and springy wood, making these skis easily maneuverable for someone looking to start venturing off-piste.
- Slantwall Construction – K2 lays the sidewalls of the ski at a 30 degree angle to increase the ski's responsiveness when being laid on edge without sacrificing power from the ski.

This is the perfect all-mountain ski for progressing your skills from intermediate to advanced! Break beyond the groomers and explore the trees, bumps, and even the fresh soft snow with control and confidence. A strong edge hold and great carving ability make ripping groomers super fun, while the all-terrain rocker is designed for versatility in variable conditions.
The K2 Mindbender 85's combine a forgiving design but still offer the edge hold and carvability that most entry-level skis don't. This ski is perfect for shredding groomers at Alfton Alps but will also be a great asset to your quiver when you're skiing out west. With all-terrain rocker these skis will truly perform great in all conditions. The short low rise in the tail will also help add extra control when you're in variable snow. The aspen core is lightweight but still resilient enough to dampen the chatter at fast speeds. Once you realize the capabilities of this ski, you'll wonder how you were ever riding those crusty old rentals.
