Gear Buddy Opinion
The mindbender series was developed by K2 to suit the needs of Freeride and all mountain skiers. These skis come in a wide variety of sizes and widths suitable for a wide variety of uses and skier types. These skis have moderate flex and while they are not suitable for the park, they are suitable for turning the mountain into your park. The 99 is hailed as the most versatile in the series and is suitable for intermediate and advanced skiers who want to shred anywhere and everywhere without sacrifice.
Out of all of the skis I have skied on over the years, this is by far the best example of a true one ski quiver. As the description hints to, these skis are incredibly powerful and lightning fast edge to edge when you want to rip up some groomers, yet have great floatation when the conditions start to deepen. You really start to question if they have a speed limit because they are unbelievably stable at high speeds, regardless of any crud that may be in front of you. These things are a game changer for anyone who seeks that one ski that will truly be competent in any condition.
