The Mindbender 90Ti stood out for its ability to get intermediate skiers to the next level but still please advanced skiers with its tenacious edging capabilities. The torsional rigidity provided by two layers of metal means that it can hold its own through choppy snow and open up on the ’roy. Testers appreciated how little effort the ski required to perform as the day stretched on under the New Mexico sun.

STRENGTHS: Hard Snow, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESS: Quickness
