When K2 introduced the Mindbender collection three years back, they wanted to convey their vision of freeriding through a product assortment. K2 knew that skiing cannot just be one thing, and that “freeride” means different things to skiers in Vermont, Whistler, Chamonix and Niseko. They knew that they needed to move forward and continue to push skiing, and the gear built for it, to new levels.

So for the latest addition to the Mindbender line, the Mindbender Burst LTD Collection, K2 put their heads together, wanted a bit of that heritage flavour, and called in the big dogs. Working alongside their longtime team rider Sean Pettit to bring this project to life, they looked to their iconic Merlin 7 and gave a little nod to the Salad Days. K2 wanted to move forward, but make sure they were able to see where they came from in the rear view mirror, and as a result, they’re pretty damn proud of the outcome. So without further ado, we’re proud to present to you the Mindbender 108Ti Burst LTD and Mindbender 130 Burst LTD Boot, envisioned by K2 and Sean Pettit.

Mindbender 108Ti
The Mindbender 108Ti delivers at any speed, in any conditions. A mid-fat waist width, long turn radius, All-Terrain Rocker profile, and Titanal Y-Beam construction work together to create a stable, unflinching freeride ski that wants to be pushed. Whether the snow is soft, firm, chunky, or all of the above, you’ll be ready to play through.

Mindbender 130 Burst
Built with a heat-moldable Powerlite shell, Friction Free Cuff Pivot, tech fittings, and a burly 130 flex, the Mindbender 130 is the versatile freeride boot you need for both chairlift-assisted and human-powered endeavors. When it comes time to venture beyond the resort, flip the Powerlock Spyne into walk mode and appreciate the impressive 50-degree range of motion as you power uphill to your next objective.
