Where to Mount Ski Bindings

Click here to view instructions on Mindbender skis walk mechanism lean adjustment guidelines.

All K2 skis are marked with a factory recommended mounting position. The flex and sidecut of the ski are optimized to work best with your bindings mounted at this position.

Factory Team models have a scale marked on the sidewall of the ski 0 (core center) to 7.5 (traditional). Skiers looking for a more centered stance and symmetrical feel may consider mounting at 2 on this scale, which is the preferred mount point for many K2 athletes.
