The testers sounded relieved about the Mindbender 108Ti’s ease of use. The consensus was that the ski does what it’s asked without fuss, and—with the highest category score for Forgiveness—won’t punch back if your legs are tired or your form is a little sloppy. The ski’s fir and aspen wood core, Titanal Y-Beam, and oversized PowerWall sidewalls underfoot mean it can still hold its own when pushed hard, too.

STRENGTHS: Forgiveness, Quickness

WEAKNESSES: Hard-Snow Integrity, Crud Performance
