When introducing the Mindbender collection in 2018, we made it a goal to convey our vision of freeriding through a cohesive product assortment. We knew that skiing cannot just be one thing. The word “Freeride” holds different meanings to skiers in Vermont, Whistler, Chamonix, and Niseko. We saw the necessity to move forward and continue to push skiing, and the gear built for it, to new levels.
So, we put our heads together to find a bit of that heritage flavor and called in the big dogs! Working alongside long-time teamrider Sean Pettit to bring this project to life, we looked to the iconic Merlin 7 from 1998 for a nod to the Salad Days. We wanted to move forward without losing sight of where we came from, and we’re pretty damn proud of the outcome. We proudly present the Mindbender 108Ti and Mindbender 130 Boot as envisioned by K2 and Sean Pettit.
The Mindbender 108Ti delivers at any speed in any conditions. A mid-fat waist width, long turn radius, All-Terrain Rocker profile, and Titanal Y-Beam construction work together to create a stable, unflinching freeride ski that wants to be pushed. Whether the snow is soft, firm, chunky, or all of the above, you’ll be ready to play through.
Built with a heat-moldable Powerlite shell, Friction Free Cuff Pivot, tech fittings, and a burly 130 flex, the Mindbender 130 is the versatile freeride boot you need for both chairlift-assisted and human-powered endeavors. When it comes time to venture beyond the resort, flip the Powerlock Spyne into walk mode and appreciate the impressive 50-degree range of motion as you power uphill to your next objective.
