Ok so you've been skiing for a while now and you feel super comfortable skiing any groomed terrain. You're ready to start venturing off-trail a bit, but you're not sure your current setup is best suited for anything ungroomed. If that's the case, the Mindbender 85 Alliance is the perfect stepping stone ski for intermediates looking for their first foray into an all-mountain ski that is comfortable going beyond the groomers. Designed with a more forgiving personality than some of its bigger sisters, the Mindbender 85 Alliance still features a freeride design that packs a lot of versatility into a very approachable ski. The construction of this ski is pretty simple. It uses a lightweight Aspen Veneer core which provides a nice forgiving flex and some solid stability. Camber in the center of the ski along with K2's Slantwall construction makes sure you're still getting confidence-inspiring edge hold on hard-packed snow. The Rocker profile of this ski is shaped in such a way that features a low and gradual rise both in the tip and the tail, so when you tip the ski on edge you get to take advantage of a long effective edge which adds stability through the turn, but as you ride the ski with a flatter base and lower edge angle, you can pivot the ski very easily which gives the ski a very maneuverable and easy going feel. 85 millimeters under foot is the perfect width to maintain carving performance on firmer snow, but it still provides the necessary platform to handle ungroomed terrain where you would typically find a lot of varying snow conditions. Take you adventures beyond the groomed trail with the K2 Mindbender 85 Alliance.
