The K2 Mindbender 89Ti is a good ski for an advanced intermediate to advanced skier who prioritizes a stiff, stable, powerful all-mountain ski. This ski performs best when skied more aggressively. When driving into the turns, I found the Mindbender 89Ti to be more snappy & energetic, but when I skied it less aggressively, I found the response to... Read more

Not in love

Originally posted at k2snow.com on Apr 22, 2024
I was really excited to try these skis after reading positive reviews, and making my own best guess based on the ski's dimensions and construction. I have skied them in most conditions now, and while I keep trying to like them, it's not happening. Pros: I do really love the short turn radius and this is definitely a fun ski for carving quick turns on edgeable, smooth and predictable snow surfaces at moderate or even higher speeds *if the conditions are just right. Cons: I am not comfortable pushing this ski in pretty much any other condition. The tips chatter and I do not find the level of stability I was hoping for. Admittedly, most of my skis are very damp and planted, so I knew these would edge toward more "playful" than I am used to, but that's what I thought I wanted. Guess I was wrong. I am skiing these in 170cm which is appropriate for me (5'5", 120lbs, advanced skier) and is in my typical range of ski sizes for this category of ski, but I feel at times like I could go over the bars. It is inhibiting my desire to drive the ski in choppy or rough conditions. Probably a great ski for many, but just not for my style and goals.

Leo is knowledgeable and perceptive with utmost integrity
5 /5
Leo really listened to my desires and concerns and approached my situation with a honest interest in finding a solution that will work for ME without bringing any preconceived or biased notion of what I should get based on corporate marketing goals. He was patient but adept at bringing the train back to the rails when I strayed from the track -- he was able drive us to a solution to the original problem that we were trying to solve. And this was despite me getting super amped at one point about a very wide-ski (and more expensive) solution that would have netted him a higher commission but that would not have worked for my initially stated goals. Leo also has an attention to detail, noting even the asides of a conversation to get the best possible solution. He also pays attention to the ostensibly less important issues -- but issues that in actuality are more important -- such as helmet fit and safety features. Finally, you can tell that Leo really enjoys what he does and believes in his mission, which makes working with him an absolute pleasure. He brings with him fun sense of humor and inspires confidence in you that you've come to the best possible solution. A+ Leo! Thanks a bunch.

Jay was incredibly helpful
5 /5
When I started looking for my first real snowboard setup, Jay was just the help I needed. I tell you we probably looked through all of curated's snowboard collection, twice over. He was super patient with me trying to decide on a board, even after changing the size I was after halway through. Jay was a ton of fun to talk with through the process and just really made things great with a lot of insight. Couldn't be happier with the help he gave me!

Patrick is the bee’s knees
5 /5
Super friendly and helpful, Patrick is a very relatable personality to have help do you shopping. I haven’t snowboarded in about 15 years but he listened to my experience and curated some fine pieces of gear for me to run with next season. He made sure to include a wide portfolio of items that I may be interested in, from the bargain pieces to the higher-end. The best part of my experience with Patrick was that he always tried to recommend something that was on sale that fit my profile of what I was shopping for. That was extremely appreciated— thanks again for everything Patrick! 🏂

Luke gave me the confidence to own my first set of skis! I have been hesitant to own, always preferring to bring my boots and rent my skis, but I have always wondered if I shouldn't take the plunge and try ownership. Luke helped me find a good fit for my needs, even though I had no idea what that was, and he even helped me find something at a really great price point! He is friendly and knowledgeable. Curated is a great service, especially for newbies like myself!

Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.

I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.
