Product details

At 116 underfoot, The K2 Mindbender is designed for people who like to play in the powder, but the construction creates a ski that can deal with variable conditions on the mountain. The wood core keeps this ski light, playful, and poppy, while the braided construction provides power and much-needed stability.

Key Features:

  • Spectral Braid – A woven fiber provides different flex and torsional properties to different parts of the ski. This feature keeps the ski stable and robust at speed and surfy and playful in powder.
  • Wood Core – The Maple and Paulownia Core gives the ski a lively, energetic feel while keeping the ski light.
  • Carbon Boost Braid – Longitudinal carbon fibers are woven into the ski, leading to better pop and rebound. The ski will feel more lively and energetic, especially while getting airborne.
  • Powder Rocker – Rocker in the tips and tails provides excellent float in the powder, while camber underfoot generates more edge hold while carving turns.

The Mindbender Alliance 116C is K2’s women’s specific powder ski designed for intermediate to expert skiers. It is a surprisingly versatile, fun, fat ski both in bounds and in the backcountry.

Super wide for float, but still stout and stable for firm days, or just bombing the cat tracks back to the lift. While a bit wide for true all mountain skiing, the 116 is a fantastic freeride choice for the playful skier. Best suited for deep, wide, and fast skiing, the 116 loves to be pointed down the fall line and ripped around the biggest lines and pillows on the hill.

These have SUPREME flotation in powder, but with plenty of edge hold, you'll still be able to have a fun time rippin down some groomers! These have a maple and paulownia core for the ideal blend of power, energy, and lightweight performance. Not to mention the DOOOPE graphic!!
