They say

This new model from Head uses tip and tail rocker with traditional camber underfoot, which should give it a surfy character. It also uses a combination of sandwich and cap to give good grip while being forgiving through tip and tail.

We say

It’s another ski which handles easily in deep conditions, yet still has that ability to feel solid and reassuring at speed. It has a noticeably soft tip and tail, which give the ski a sensitive touch with the snow. Because it’s easy to feel the type of snow you’re moving through, you can react in the right way. When the speed ramps up it feels pretty solid on the edge, although those soft extremities will have their limits, particularly in harder, chopped up crud. Overall, an easy-to-use big-mountain ski that can handle a range of conditions.

Tester Comments

Alyn Morgan
Accessible, easy ski which makes for a fun ride off piste
Derek Chandler
Good all-rounder, built well for big turns but still lively and flexy enough to throw around at slower speeds
