The Mindbender 116C is built for those epic powder days that everyone dreams of, but it’s also equipped to deal with the reality of getting to the stash and back again. Strung up with our Spectral Braid technology and Powder Rocker profile, this surprisingly lightweight fat ski can run with the best of ‘em, from effortless turns in the lightest snow to punching through that end-of-day chop.
SPECTRAL BRAID An extension of K2’s Torsion Control Design, Spectral Braid is a first of its kind variable angle reinforcement (Patent Pending) that allows for precision tuned torsion and flex by altering the fiber orientation along the length of the ski. Lively, energetic, and remarkably composed; Mindbender skis with K2’s Spectral Braid have stability and control in spades while remaining hyper-maneuverable.
CARBON BOOST BRAID Longitudinal carbon stringers woven into the K2’s patented Triaxial Braid for added pop and rebound, found on freeride and factory team skis.
SLANTWALL Adding a 30° angle to the sidewall in K2’s Hybritech construction, SlantWall increases a ski's agility and responsiveness while maintaining accuracy and power.
POWDER ROCKER™ High and long rise in the tip and tail to maximize float in softer snow.
PAULOWNIA CORE Lively, flexible wood with excellent weight to strength ratio.
MAPLE CORE Energetic, tough, dense wood that absorbs impact.
