    @Philpug and @Tricia went live today with some info on the Mindbender 99Ti, and we've got a full review of the 108Ti for you! Pretty exciting new collection from K2, we're excited to continue to ski and test them throughout the season.

    I was bummed the 99 wasn't going to be the blue topsheet like on the proto. No worries,it looks good. Wish they'd kept the red bases though.

    I like the final design more than the prototype design. Kind of an art deco look, clean and nicely understated.

    The final design is very cool, and I like it a lot. But I'm with @Andy Mink on the red bases. I loved the red bases on the prototype and wish they would have kept them. I'm sure they'll hit New Zealand this winter, so we'll have a chance to see and demo them in July/August.

    I wonder if a few pairs will be available in the States later this season. Given the rave early reviews, I wonder if it would be good marketing if they release a limited supply later in the season to their most loyal shop distributors (assuming they can do it production wise) at full price while discounting the soon to be discontinued Pinnacle line as end of season nears. The idea would be the limited supply Mindbenders would sell out while building even more buzz and excitement for the full release next season.

    We should have some inventory within a week or so, I believe they are on their way.

    Nice review. Dig the new design. Local shop had the 99s. Are the 108s out?
