Patience is key to understanding the new women’s Mindbender 115c. Testers who hopped on and tried to send it without first getting to know this ski ended up working harder than necessary. More patient skiers realized that if you let this ski do its thing—that is, rip huge arcs down the fall line—it really comes to life for you. Featuring a maple/aspen core, K2’s Spectral Braid, and the brand’s Powder Rocker profile, this ski was designed to charge the steep and deep. 

STRENGTHS: Flotation, Playfulness

WEAKNESSES: Forgiveness, Crud Performance
