This is Head’s top of the line slalom ski, it’s the same ski that is used by their world cup athletes like Bode Miller. The ski is also pre mounted with the Head race plate RDX. The Head got fantastic reviews from our test team, it’s exceptionally smooth while delivering rock solid grip throughout the turn. It copes with difficult terrain better than any other ski we tested, but you need to well balanced to get the results.

Tester Comments

Mark Jones
Very smooth and accessible for a world cup sk
Nicko Braxton
What a ski! It’s unforgiving if you are not centered, but it’s smooth on the transition with plenty of grip
