When soft snow is in short supply, turn to the K2 Mindbender 89Ti men’s freeride ski. Although it’s built with the same Titanal Y-Beam construction and All-Terrain Rocker profile as its other metal-reinforced Mindbender siblings, the 89Ti stands apart thanks to a narrower waist width.
Its All-Terrain Rocker profile knows no bounds and keeps you nimble enough to navigate bumps, trees, and the occasional chop. The result is a ski that has the precise edge hold you need to dominate the hardpack but is still wide enough for forays into the ungroomed.
A single wood species ensures consistency – giving riders the advantage of a proven flex, durability, and snap.
Energetic, tough, dense wood that absorbs impact.
Titanal has long been used in high-end skis and is known for providing a damp, stable ride at high speeds and on variable terrain, but our Y-Beam technology takes things a step further with dramatically enhanced performance tuning. Y-shaped prongs set over the edges in the shovel of the ski provide precise, powerful turn initiation, while the narrower metal shape in the tail of the ski provides the support you need for charging while still remaining maneuverable, forgiving, and easy to break free from turns. You can find Titanal Y-Beam technology on our Mindbender 108Ti, Mindbender 99Ti, Mindbender 89Ti, Mindbender 99Ti W, and Mindbender 89Ti W skis.
