What K2 says about the Mindbender 89Ti
“The most versatile member of the Mindbender family.
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. The result is a ski that has the precision edge hold you need to dominate the hardpack, but is still wide enough for forays into the ungroomed.”
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Mindbender 89Ti:
In Front of Toe Piece: 7-10
Behind the Heel Piece: 9.5-8.5
The Mindbender 89 Ti is just a bit softer overall than the Mindbender 99Ti.
We received the Mindbender 89Ti this spring and several of our reviewers have spent time skiing it in the resort, so keep an eye out for updates, and let us know of any questions you have about this ski.
