They say

Every condition, every day. Developed with Titanal Beam technology for supreme turn initiation, control and stability in all terrain

We say

The Mindbender is a lively ski that feels eager to get into action as soon as its moving. This is due to reactive shape, which gives back a lot of energy when tilted onto the edge, the strong shovel really guides you into the turn, while the strong tail powers out of the arc. That strong shape is matched up to strong agility in moving from edge to edge. The tail is powerful and some testers found it quite a handful in tricky conditions, but strong skiers will really enjoy the reaction they get from this ski

Tester Comments

Eilidh McLeod
Very heavy in the tails, which makes it awkward to ski at slower speeds. At higher speeds its nippy, agile and really playful
Rowena Phillips
Lively fun ski that stands out from the crowd. Fat enough to rip in variable conditions and deep powder
