K2 Mindbender 99Ti Skis
The K2 Mindbender 99 Ti provides an amazing amount of power and a smooth and stable ride at all speeds. Built with a blend of fir and aspen wood, K2 adds their titanal Y-beam to the mix, and this partial metal laminate really brings the strength and grip to the forebody and the underfoot regions of the ski. With full-metal to the edges up front and under the binding, these skis are quite strong in the shovel and waist, allowing for instant edge engagement and rock-solid edge grip on firm and hard snow. These skis are a bit playful in the tail, as that metal tapers in to leave a bit of forgiveness and smearability in the back end of the ski. Strong, stable, and incredibly smooth, the K2 Mindbender 99 Ti has the shape, profile, and construction for true all-mountain performance. With no real speed limit in sight, these skis do a great job in groomer cruising, in addition to being one of the best crud-busters on the hill. These things will prefer to go through adverse conditions and terrain rather than over them, and that's just a different type of fun. If you're an advanced or expert skier who is looking for a one-ski quiver to tackle it all, the K2 Mindbender 99 Ti is a great daily driver option for east and west coast skiers alike.

Also, your comments on the Elan Ripstick 96 Black Edition has got me interested in that ski also. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find anywhere out here to demo that, and am a bit uneasy about buying a ski that I haven't demoed. It seems like it's a quite different ski from the MindBender? How would the 2 compare as far as dampness, stability, versatility, etc? Thanks for any input.
I don't think you'd be losing much stability because the Mindbender 99ti has a good amount of dampness to it. the 166cm will definitely be more manageable in trees, bumps and any tight scenarios. Hope this helps!
