Head Super Joy review 2020
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
Acknowledged by the Proskilab testers for its sporty temperament, the Head Super Joy hasn't changed much this year.
"Excellent ski", "good ski", "fun to ski"... The compliments pour forth and confirm the fun ride that this ski gives, as well as its potential to improve technique.
It's important to note that to enjoy the performance of this ski requires a certain level of ability. The Super Joy likes speed.
Grippy, well-anchored through the turn, it stays stable and with solid hold across all terrain. It has quite a short radius which means it launches into the turn decisively. It's responsive and agile with a good rebound/pop at the end of the turn.
The Super Joy is quite a stiff ski so does need a good level of skill and commitment to stay over the ski and push forward in the boots to flex it correctly. The ski appeared less comfortable in skid turns than last year.
Head's Super Joy is an excellent ski for this category which will satisfy skiers who already have a good technical level, can control carving turns and enjoy speed.
