Head Supershape I.Magnum 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
The Supershape I.Magnum from Head has been a benchmark for several years and is a real market success.
Its reputation grew from its user-friendliness and facility when carving at medium speeds. These qualities were reiterated by PROSKILAB's professional reviewers. The ski is highly accessible and demands few technical skills. Turn initiation is easy, even if it isn't very incisive, and carving at medium speed is intuitive.
A flexible ski for this category, the Supershape I.Magnum doesn't quite make the grade in terms of pure performance, high speed or on the hard pack. Here, the ski finds it difficult to grip in the turn and the ride is less precise.
The Supershape I.Magnum from Head is a very good ski for intermediate to good riders who want to begin carving up to medium speeds on a user-friendly and forgiving ski.
- Good rotation and turn initiation
- Great carving potential
- Comfortable up to medium speeds
- Versatile skid turns/carving
- Good snow/ski contact
