The K2 Mindbender 99Ti Skis 2023 are the ultimate freeride skis that combine quick turn radius with effortless float. These skis are equipped with Titanal Y-Beam Construction and All-Terrain Rocker profile, making them the most versatile and well-rounded skis in the Mindbender collection. The gradual rise in the tip provides versatility in all conditions, while the low tail ensures control in variable snow. With equal parts agility and versatility, these skis offer hard-charging performance expected from narrower skis.

  • Titanal Y-Beam Construction for maneuverability underfoot.
  • All-Terrain Rocker profile for versatile performance.
  • Gradual rise in tip for all-condition versatility.
  • Low tail for control in variable snow.

The 99Ti Mindbender is a big favorite in the Mindbender series and I can see why. I rode this ski a lot throughout the 2023 season all around the mountain and always had a good time on it. It's a pretty hard-charging, hard-to-the-ground kind of ride. The titanal in the ski makes it pretty aggressive and heavy but leads it... Read more

The Mindbender series has been a huge hit for K2 over the years with a cult-like following among skiers from coast to coast. The 99 Ti is a ski that can be skied by a less experienced skier but enjoyed most by a more seasoned pilot. Its Y-shaped metal frame stiffens up the tip of the ski while keeping the... Read more

These skis charge! They are lightweight but stiff and sturdy with the Titanal Y beam. They are the perfect all mountain blend that can take you anywhere from steep icy groomers to deep pow fields. They cut through crud and chunder and preform well with speed transferring from edge to edge with ease. And they float surprisingly well for... Read more

This is probably the best ski I’ve ever enjoyed under my feet. It’s super stable, has exceptional grip on icy surfaces and delivers offpiste! It’s such a fun ski to ride and despite its weight it’s still quite agile in turns (I ride the 191cm length). However, note that I would only recommend this ski is for an active and advanced rider. I ride this ski in the Swiss Alps. Conditions vary a lot and it’s a true Allrounder. Would definitely recommend it. It’s so much ahead of all other skis I’ve ridden.

What a huge surprise!!

Originally posted at k2snow.com on Mar 28, 2024
To be honest, this ski wasn't even on my radar when I was looking to replace my other skis. I demo'd the ski only because the ski I was looking at wasn't available but it took all of two runs to convince me this was the ski I was looking for. If you need a daily driver to cover the entire mountain with a stable platform under all conditions this is a great choice. This ski has excellent edge control and transitions effortlessly from powder to crud to hard pack (not necessarily in that order). I can ski any terrain and any conditions with confidence. Although its on the heavy side, wider under foot, and has a longer turn radius it doesn't ski like it. It has much more agility than I expected - even in bumps. That said, it does require more input to turn the ski where bumps are closer together. On groomers, it holds and edge, carves, and rolls over edge to edge intuitively. With respect to skiing powder, I have only had the opportunity to ski "boot-top" depth powder but the ski had plenty of float. No "on the fly" adjustments required - just silky smooth pivots!! As a reference, I live and ski in Colorado and get more than 40 days of skiing each season. I am 150 lbs. soaking wet and ski the 178's. This is the most fun I've had on skis in the last four years!!

Had the experience to express the manufacture’s logic and literature into how it applies in the field. Understood what I was looking for and gave me picks that I was already eyeing up and some I haven’t even known to consider. Which was great bc it ended up being a board I liked from afar but didn’t know it fitted my criterion. I’m stoked!

Hunter was so helpful in steering me in the right direction for which skis and boots would be best for me. I was feeling overwhelmed with all the choices, and he gave me three great options and explained them as well, even sending me a video of him explaining to help me understand better. Thanks so much!!

I've been looking for new skis + bindings for over a year now. I'd narrowed down my search to two pairs and couldn't decide which one was better for me. Luke was very responsive, asked questions about current setup, my skiing ability, and provided recommendations for skis, bindings, and boots. He picked the same top two skis I'd been looking at (without knowing) and helped me narrow down the choice to one! I feel way more confident in my purchase of new skis and bindings and can't wait for next winter!
