Tip it, twist it, bop it. The women’s-specific Mindbender 106C will do anything you ask, and you don’t even have to ask nicely. Thanks to a lightweight design—an aspen core meets K2’s Spectral Braid for a fine-tuned flex pattern—this ski won’t make you muscle your way around the mountain. It likes to show off on edge and in freshies, though it’s eager to please everywhere else on the mountain, too. 

STRENGTHS: Flotation, Forgiveness

WEAKNESSES: Stability at Speed, Hard-Snow Integrity
