5 Great reasons to buy from us:
The Mindbender 96 C is a versatile all-mountain ski for those who travel. 96mm waist may be a touch wide for the typical Australian conditions, but the 96 C is solid enough to deal with all but the iciest of icy conditions.
New for the 2024 season, the 96C slots into a stacked range of carbon reinforced All mountain options. K2 have taken their learnings of the first few years of making skis with the Carbon Spectral Braid and tweaked all of the Mindbender C series. The latest generation of Mindbender C are stronger but without any substantial weight gain.
Who’s it for?
The Mindbender 96C has a lot of potential customers due to its versatility. It shines for people who travel and might do a little bit of backcountry skiing whilst in Australia. Pair it up with either an alpine binding or a crossover touring binding and rule the world.
Why we love it?
The Mindbender 96 C is one of the contenders for best ski to ski in any condition. Its a true jack of all trades both in and out of the resort.

"THIS PLACE IS AWESOME"
They sorted me out with a new backcountry setup, and couldn't have been more helpful. Answered all my questions about tech bindings and boots. They obviously use the gear, and seriously know their stuff. They tracked down some hard to find items, and then got my gear sorted and in the post the same afternoon I ordered it. So glad I found this place!

"GREAT SERVICE AND REALLY FRIENDLY"
I'm in Sydney and they're in Melbourne but no problem getting on the phone with my boot size to mount the bindings and very kindly trim the skins for the skis. Shipping was fast and am impressed by their personal service. Thanks guys! Would definitely shop here again.

"20 YEARS OF PAIN, GONE!"
These insoles have fixed my lifelong pain that I've experienced wearing ski boots. Within 2 hours of skiing with these, my body adjusted to them and I have yet to experience any discomfort / pain whilst using these. 2020 is the first year I've returned to Melbourne from skiing pain free! Will recommend to all my friends.

“EXCELLENT SERVICE AND GREAT PRICE”
I’m very happy with the advice and service i received from Aussieskier before buying my new skis. The staff are super helpful and sent my skis by courier straight away so I had them in time for an overseas trip. The skis arrived in perfect condition with binding attached and exactly as expected. I would definitely buy from Aussieskier again in the future.
