A lightweight ripper that loves soft snow more than anything.


K2 introduced the Mindbender 106C for the upcoming season as a soft snow, off-piste loving addition to their established Mindbender series. A lightweight feel and generous tip rocker allow for an effortless feel while you're working your way through steep terrain, tight trees, and variable snow conditions.  At 106mm underfoot, it's a great width for someone looking for a powder ski that will still hold up if there's no snow in the forecast. Considering the width, it offers decent grip and hard snow performance to hold you over until the snow starts falling, but it's not hard to tell the 106C is most at home off-trail in softer snow. That's when the ski comes alive. It's lively, floats great, and mows over turbulence and chopped-up snow like it's nothing. It pivots on a dime and also has a huge sweet spot, maximizing confidence in technical terrain and tricky descents. That's not only great for anyone who likes a nimble feel when they're in the steeper stuff, but also for anyone who isn't fully comfortable in expert-level terrain, but aspires to be. Also, because the ski is so light, anyone looking to make an alpine touring setup with a killer downhill ski should have this one on their radar. 

Who's this ski for? Skiers who prioritize soft snow performance and a manuverable feel. Skiers looking to get into steeper, more technical terrain but aren't fully confident in their ability. Skiers looking for a wider ski that's light enough for some touring days. 

Who isn't this ski for? Skiers who just stick to the groomers. Skiers who don't care about pow days (???). Skiers who want a stiff, powerful ski for their off-piste adventures.

The Test Crew

We test products year round in order to curate the best gear for you.

A perfect option for anyone looking for a ski that's at home off-trail and that prioritizes maneuverability. A lightweight feel throughout the ski makes it easy to pivot and initiate a turn on, so even if you're not fully comfortable in the trees or bumps, it's accessible. At 106mm, the ski prefers fresh snow, but a strong feel underfoot allows it to hold its own if you get unlucky with conditions.
