You've seen 'em here, there and everywhere. The K2 Mindbender 116c is the powder ski meant to charge it all and come back swinging. Strung up with Carbon Spectral Braid, this surprisingly lightweight deep powder ski can run with the best of 'em. They've put in the work to produce the ultimate big-mountain powder ski that won't bog down on the harder stuff.Read more
Torsion Control Design
Designed to enhance stability and control in all snow types, TORSION CONTROL DESIGN combines a progressive torsional flex, with a balanced and even longitudinal profile. Torsionally stiffest in the forebody and center of the ski, then easing throughout the tail, K2 skis with TCD have both precise, accurate turn initiation and smooth, consistent turn release in all snow types.
Carbon Spectral Braid
An extension of K2's Torsion Control Design, Carbon Spectral Braid is a first of its kind variable angle reinforcement (Patent Pending) that allows for precision tuned torsion and flex by altering the fiber orientation along the length of the ski. Lively, energetic, and remarkably composed; Mindbender skis with K2's Carbon Spectral Braid have stability and control in spades while remaining hyper-maneuverable.
Adding a 30° angle to the sidewall increases a ski's agility and responsiveness while maintaining accuracy and power.
