K2 Mindbender 90 Ti Skis with Bindings
The Mindbender 90 Ti is K2's quintessential all-mountain offering for aggressive skiers that want the precision of a frontside ski with the versatility of something a bit wider. Starting at its core, the Mindbender 90 Ti uses a blend of Maple and Aspen which gets beefed up by a Titanal Y-Beam. This is exactly what it sounds like; a Titanal laminate in the shape of a "y" gets laid over to core which helps tailor the torsional stiffness and power being allocated to specific sections of the ski. Metal out in the edges of the tip provide added torsional stiffness and vibration damping to that section of the ski for increased edge grip and stability. This really allows the skier to drive that portion of the ski into a turn. Full-width metal underfoot provides maximum torsional stiffness where you need it most for those precise and powerful turns at high speeds. In the tail, the metal tapers out to a strip that runs through the center of that section of the ski which maintains the ski's stability, but allows for more torsional flex making the ski easier to release and pivot when needed. A 90-millimeter equates to a phenomenal groomer ski but allows for plenty of versatility for those who like to venture away from the groomed stuff and into more technical terrain where more variable conditions are often found. While not quite a powder ski, the 90-millimeter waist and a generous rocker profile in the tip and tail give this ski substantial float and maneuverability. The rocker is shaped in a way that provides a long effective edge when the ski is tipped over, but allows for a lot of lateral maneuverability if the ski is ridden with a flatter base. Advanced to expert skiers that enjoy skiing an amalgam of terrain on and off the marked trails will love the power and versatility of the K2 Mindbender 90 Ti.

Why not? Although Tyrolia does not have the top of mind marketing presence as a Marker or Salomon, they are every bit as solid of a binding as they come. The Attack 13 measure up to any binding on the market today as far as performance, releasability and durability.
We put the 95 mm brake on that ski all day.
I'd go 177. Very fun skis!
