K2 2020 Mindbender 85 Alliance Women's Skis

By K2


The K2 Mindbender 85 Alliance Skis are a perfect platform for an athletic beginner or solid intermediate - light and forgiving, but with enough guts to handle harder snow conditions and a bit of speed. This is the narrowest ski in the new Mindbender women's series, and an easy ski to love. The K2 Mindbender 85 Alliance Skis are the perfect entry point for aspiring freeriders and all-terrain shredders looking for a capable frontside ski with the heart of an explorer.

Product Details

Rocker Type

All-Terrain Rocker – Skis with All-Terrain rocker have a gradual rise to the tip for great versatility in all conditions, with a short, low rise in the tail for added control variable snow.


Aspen Veneer – Lightweight and resilient, great all-around material.


Torsion Control Design – At the core of the Mindbender Collection is the Torsion Design Control Philosophy. It's a notion that edge grip and driftability don't have to be mutually exclusive. So from that starting point K2 developed two tech solutions intended to create skis that initiate and grip through the forebody, without sacrificing the ability to drift and cut free on the backend.


SlantWall Sidewalls – Beveled ABS sidewalls reduce weight while retaining exceptional edgehold.

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
