They say

The Supershape series from Head has been completely revamped with wider tips and narrower tails giving a more progressive sidecut. They use KERS technology which stores up energy produced through the turn and then releases it on exit.

We say

This is a well balanced ski that delivers tenacious edge hold on the piste while feeling very comfortable in all turn shapes. The Magnum has an exceptionally smooth flex which is matched up to a predictable, rounded sidecut. This makes it one of those skis which is very easy to read in terms of the shape of turn its going to make and knowing how it will react when greater edge angles are loaded up. It feels at its best in longer turns, while in shorts it performs really well, but would need a stiffer tip to feel really locked down. Overall, a great piste ski that performs well.

James Allen
Very good all rounder, very smooth flex and you know exactly what you are going to get from this ski
Chris Taine
Solid, tenacious edge hold, responsive with lively rebound
