The K2 Mindbender 88Ti Alliance Skis are demons on the hardpack. They're a hard charging freeride stick for whenever conditions are anything less than pristine. Day old powder? Check. Crud busting? Check. Laying down mean trenches on the groomers? Double check.They're crazy fast edge to edge, love to bounce and play through varied terrain, and thanks to a titanal Y-beam, they're damp and stable up to ludicrous speeds.
