K2 Mindbender 106c Alliance (W)
Everyone needs a go-to. For the demanding skier, the K2 Mindbender 106c offers that and more, no doubt. Featuring a quick edge-to-edge feel thanks to the Aspen Veneer Core™ and Carbon Spectral Braid™, the 106 offers a nimble feel in the variable snow. But when things get deep, lean in and hold on tight; you’ll be in for a sweet ride.
What Blister Gear Review says: I’ve been thoroughly impressed with the K2 Mindbender 106c Alliance. It has become my go-to ski when conditions aren’t super firm (where a narrower, stiffer ski would work better) or super deep (where something wider like the Mindbender 115c would make more sense). In other words, the Mindbender 106c has proven to be a great ski for a good number of days on the mountain, and I think its blend of stability, forgiveness, and maneuverability will make it a good choice for a wide range of skiers.

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 in K2’s Hybritech construction, SlantWall increases a ski's agility and responsiveness while maintaining accuracy and power.
ALL TERRAIN ROCKER™:
Skis with All-Terrain rocker have a gradual rise to the tip for great versatility in all conditions, with a short, low rise in the tail for added control variable snow.
Lightweight and resilient, great all-around material.
