2020 K2 Mindbender 90 Ti Ski Review

New from K2 for the 2020 season is the all new Mindbender series. Comprised of a total of 12 skis, split evenly between men's and women's categories and ranging from 85-115mm in width, the K2 Mindbender series is focused on bringing the fun back to ski design, with an aim towards enhancing the torsional elements of a ski. Here at SkiEssentials, we're lucky enough to have the 2020 K2 Mindbender 90 Ti already available for sale, and have also spent a considerable amount of time putting them to the test at Stowe. In this review, we'll share with you just what it is that makes the new K2 Mindbender skis so exciting!

2020 Blizzard Brahma 82 Ski Review

For 2020, we've identified a trend amongst ski manufacturers of offering narrower versions of some of their most popular freeride skis. We've already covered the all new 2020 Nordica Enforcer 88, which is the narrowest in their lineup, and this week we've decided to take on another review of a narrower-than-ever freeride ski: the 2020 Blizzard Brahma 82. While many of you may be feeling skeptical about the "narrowization" of freeride skis, the fact of the matter is that the 2020 Brahma 82 actually perfectly meets the needs of a certain type of skier. To find out more, check out our complete ski review of this exciting new ski!
