They say

The all new Total Joy is a striking looking ski which uses Graphene in its construction, a new material which is incredibly light and strong. It also uses Head’s ‘ERA 3 ‘profile which is specific for women.

We say

The looks got the thumbs up from the test crew! It really does stand out against a lot of other skis in this category. The performance also matches up to the looks, it is exceptionally light, this is one of the main stand out characteristics of the ski. In fresh snow  it was brilliant fun with the wide shovel rising up very quickly to let the skis get into action, it felt incredibly easy to steer and very playful. On the piste the levels of grip were good, but strong skiers would actually want a bit more beef in the construction to give good stability at speed. Overall, a really interesting new addition to the Head range.

Tester Comments

Lynn Mill
Fun and light in fresh snow, wide tip allows float without feeling heavy.
Rowena Phillips
Ski looks great! They are lightweight, but were quite slow onto the edge for on piste shorts.
