They say

The MYA uses Head’s ‘ERA 3.0’ combination of technology and shapes to give easy steering, grip and stability. It uses 20% rocker with a traditional camber through the rest of the ski. 

We say

The MYA 9 got great feedback from our test team - the standout highlight was its ability to perform really well in all conditions. In deep snow it floats up really well, and feels instantly playful and easy to steer. The shape and width are really well judged for off-piste conditions and it’s brilliant fun. On the groomed runs it carved really well for a ski of this width, particularly in medium-to-long turns. It felt stable, grippy and smooth. Overall, a hard ski to fault. Some testers felt the tail could be smoother, but the big picture is that this is a fantastic freeride ski that copes with all conditions exceptionally well.
