They say

The Supershape Magnum is our most versatile Supershape, delivering easy to handle, all day, on piste performance for high end recreational carving.

We say

The Supershape has been a long standing model in Heads line up and has constantly been a great performer in ski tests. This year sees no change, in that it’s still delivers a very strong performance. In all turn shapes it feels very solid on the edge with high levels of grip and the ability to deliver that high performance in any type of turn. One of the strong characteristics of the ski is the wide shovel, which really pulls the skier into the new turn. Particularly in medium arcs, this is an inspirational ski, which due to its light construction feels very easy to use.

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Wow! Light, lively and bags of grip, but very forgiving to use at all speeds. Easy to change turn shapes
Nicko Braxton
Great to ski both low and high speed, easy to use for lower level skiers, but still loads of top end
