What K2 says about the Mindbender 99Ti
“Quick edge to edge? Check. Surprising float in the soft stuff? Oh, you bet. The Mindbender 99Ti boasts the most well-rounded skill set among its peers thanks to a moderate waist width, Titanal Y-Beam construction, and our All-Terrain Rocker profile. Striking the perfect balance between agility and stability, the K2 Mindbender 99Ti men’s freeride ski is the go-to model for confident ripping all over the mountain.”
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Mindbender 99Ti:
In Front of Toe Piece: 8-9.5
Behind the Heel Piece: 9.5-9
The main difference when compared to the 19/20-21/22 Mindbender 99Ti is that this new version feels a bit softer in the rockered portion of the tail.
