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.”

Flex Pattern

Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Mindbender 99Ti:

Tips: 6.5-7
Shovels: 7-8
In Front of Toe Piece: 8-9.5
Underfoot: 9.5
Behind the Heel Piece: 9.5-9
Tails: 8.5-7.5

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.

Stay Tuned…

  1. I was on this 2022/23 ski for 1st tracks on a knee deep day at Jackson a few weeks ago. I was blown away by how it performed.

  2. FYI I just received my 2023 99ti 184cm. Their weights of mine are 2092g and 2093g. They look really good in person and any online photos I’ve seen do not portray the colours properly, nor give them justice. The background is a matte black, with metallic silver spray-paint blotches / streaks, and the lighter colour is metallic brass spray-paint blotches / streaks (some pics make them look light orange’ish). The K2 at the tip and tail is a very dark army green, as is the K2 base die-cut. The tip & tail rocker lines look a bit deeper / longer in person. I was debating between 178 and 184, but decided to give the longer version a go, so hopefully the lighter flex and a bit more rocker will make them more accessible for me ( these will be my wider ski for trips ). I have some Strive 13 Demos already ordered for them, but won’t get on these until next season.
