This season, we hit a new decade. 2020! What does that mean? You dont have to ski on clunky, one-dimensional skis to crush the front side of the mountain. The all-new Mindbender 88Ti Alliance exemplifies the value of new age ski technology. There is metal, in the form of a Y-Beam, that adds strength and power in the tails and underfoot. This gives the Mindbender 88Ti excellent hard snow stability and carving prowess. That metal splits into a Y shape toward the tips. This makes for precise and easy turning and ultimate versatility. You will still be having fun on these skis in 2030. Similar skis: Nordica Santa Ana 93, Blizzard Black Pearl 88, Rossignol Experience 88 Ti W.
