The new Head Peaks look fantastic: graphically it’s a big change from last year. These skis use new moulds and feature ‘Flow Ride’ which gives the ski rocker for deeper conditions whilst still retaining stability on the piste. The new tip definitely helps initiate the turn. It feels effortless to move into the new direction, with the bonus of floating up in deeper conditions. For all-round cruising, it gives out a smooth ride. At higher speeds, the edge grip is solid but the tip starts to feel less stable.

Tester Comments

Sean Langmuir
Well suited to longer turns at speed. Firm underfoot
Roddy Willis
Easy to use and great for skiers looking for a ski to use mainly on piste
