Dubbed “The Widowmaker” of K2’s new Mindbender series, the blacked-out 99Ti is made to go fast on edge. With a modified, Y-shaped upper layer of Titanal and a maple-aspen wood core, the 99Ti gains extra edge hold thanks to oversized ABS sidewalls that are integrated into the ski throughout the midbody, enhancing power transfer and stability on edge. Testers loved it.

STRENGTHS: Stability at Speed, Quickness

WEAKNESS: Flotation
