The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

A fun, light and playful option for intemridate to advance resort riding skiers. The ski provides great verstiality with a snappy and poppy feel thanks to the spectral braid and carboon boost. The strong edge of the ski can allow for advance hard carving and a powerful feel on groomers.

Ideal for
  • High energy ski
  • Light and comfortable for all-day riding
  • Tight turning radius
Not ideal for
  • It can be too little ski underfoot on higher snowfall days.

The K2 Mindbender 90C Alliance Skis were a line of skis started by K2 in 2019. These skis are light and quick, yet are a nimble, all-mountain option for women skiers looking to be able to perform in a wide variety of conditions and terrain. The K2 Mindbender 90C is great inbound on the groomers and bumps, it's a capable carver, and it's also just as fun off-piste in the trees and powder. With the new Carbon Spectral Braid Technology incorporated into the ski, K2 was able to make the ski lighter without removing its ability to rebound while tackling any terrain on the mountain.

Key Features:

  • Carbon Spectral Braid – The carbon braiding is a carbon laminate weave over the core. The strings of carbon laminate are in an "X" pattern that is tighter and closer together underfoot, as well as out towards the shovel area of the ski. It then relaxes and becomes looser in the tail of the ski. This feature helps with the torsional rigidity (resistance to twisting) of the ski.
  • Rocker/Camber/Rocker Profile – The Rocker in both the tips and the tail makes the ski great and fairly easy for getting on edge. The camber allows for the ski to be playful and poppy.
  • Aspen Veneer Core – The light aspen core is combined with carbon boost stringers that run the length of the ski to assist with rebound and vibration dampening through the ski.

Daniela was very good at incorporating her experiences with equipment to answer my questions. She was very responsive to my concerns and all of the interactions were helpful. She knows the Curated resources very well and also shared many of those throughout my search. I highly recommend her.

Alex is the best!!! 💯🙌🏻
5 /5
I’m brand new to snowboarding (but have done other board sports🏄🏻‍♀️🛹) and know nothing about snowboarding! I’m so thankful for Alex because he was able to find me the perfect board, bindings and boots - all within my budget! He also was able to answer all my questions and get back to me fast! On top of which he checked on me after I received my products to ensure everything fit right and was to my liking which I really appreciate! 😊 Lastly he reminded me of my credits that I had from my first purchase and recommend multiple options for things I can spend it on that are easily forgotten about when your new to snowboarding (even though they’re kinda important - such as gloves, goggles, travel case, etc). Definitely will be recommending Alex to all my friends who are interested in getting into snowboarding and for other friends who are planning on changing snowboards but not sure what is best for them! And for sure will be a returning client - when it’s time to change my gear! 😊🏂

Ethan was fantastic
5 /5
I was doing my own research and it was exhausting to be honest. Saw a youtube video and decided to give this a try. Thank goodness I did. Ethan pointed me in the right direction and even recommended some things I was already interested in. Was able to purchase with confidence and that goes a long way. Good looking out Ethan

Smooth, Easy Experience for a Beginner
5 /5
I’ve spent the last several months researching and accumulating gear for the upcoming season— as a beginner, there is a lot of information out there, and choosing the right board and accessories can be daunting and confusing. Nate went above and beyond to not only make great recommendations for me but to give me lots of choices based on price point, style, goals, and more. He answered all of my questions and was always more than willing to chat with me about all things snowboard. Highly recommend Nate for all your snow sport needs!
