Head V-Shape 8 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
Relatively flexible, the V-Shape 8 is closer to an adaptive ski, lacking some of the agility needed for this category.
The ski is really enjoyable as long as you don't try to go too fast.
Light, smooth, gentle and accommodating, it will forgive errors and deliver great sensations.
However, when you step up the pace on hard pack and steep slopes, the ski quickly shows its limits. Grip is less solid and turns start to wobble.
The V-Shape 8 is a good ski with the accent on accessibility and comfort at moderate speed. We recommend it for average to good, light to medium-size riders looking for pleasure and effortless performance mainly for leisure use.
- A light ski
- Enjoys carving at cruising speeds
- Easy to handle
- Performance more limited at high speed, on hard pack and steep slopes
- Not suitable for heavier riders

Who's it for?
All-terrain skis that pack a punch. This winter's most versatile war machine: piste, off-piste, fast, slow... they can cope with anything! The wood and metal core gives them agility and rebound. They'll turn a good rider into a top rider.
