Testers’ favorite new Mindbender at Taos was the perfectly yellow 108Ti. Featuring a blended fir and aspen wood core sandwiched by K2’s new Y-Frame Titanal laminate on top and a full sheet of Titanal underneath, the ski earned tester kudos for ease of use. Many noted its potential to help intermediates improve and allow advanced and expert skiers–especially park skiers getting into freeride—to get down the hill smiling.

STRENGTHS: Playfulness, Quickness

WEAKNESS: High Speed
