The Mindbender 85 Alliance is the narrowest option in K2’s latest and greatest innovative series, the Mindbenders. Alliance in the title is a reference to K2’s incredible women’s team who get involved in order to create the best possible product. The Mindbender 85 might not have the prettiest name, but it’s a beautifully designed ski. Featuring K2’s Correct Flex technology, meaning the smallest length (149cm) will have a flex profile that suits the length of the ski, rather than that of a longer ski. Small details are what make K2 skis perform incredibly.
Who’s it for?
The Mindbender 85 Alliance is a great first ski for those who want to ski a bit of everything. Beginner to intermediate skiers will love how predictable and easy to ski they are in a huge range of conditions. These skis allow you to take your skills to the next level no matter what terrain you end up in. More advanced skiers will find them intuitive, easy going and great fun if don’t ski as hard as they once used to.
Why we love it?
Lots of shops will push ladies who aren't as experienced skiers into a heavy, carving ski that only excels on groomers and is a chore to ski anywhere else. The Mindbender 85 Alliance is the type of ski that both excel on groomers and everywhere else. Getting dragged through the trees by your ski posse? These babies will greatly outperform any narrower ski.
