Head 2015 ski reviews
These high-end HEAD skis incorporate the Intelligence™ CHIP technology. The electrical energy produced by the intellifibres is not just recycled, but stored and then gradually released thanks to a preprogramed chip –individually programmed to match the different properties of each ski. The intelligent ski’s impact increases tenfold, improving your performance while respecting your style.
The Super Joy from Head is a great success, and will really bring joy to the chalets! The ski lives up to its name, with excellent accessibility/performance and is a pleasure to use. We recommend this ski to intermediate to excellent skiers, who want a ski that’s versatile, highly enjoyable and that performs well.
A very good ski for this category (already picked out last year), this model was reviewed in a longer version than requested, making more difficult to handle, especially at slower speed. Its accessibility together with its capacity to help skiers make technical progress mean it’s a good choice for beginner to intermediate skiers who want to improve their technique.
The Head i SL is not sufficiently focused on performance to rank high in this category. It would probably have done far better in the High End Piste category. It remains an excellent ski, particularly enjoyable and smooth on soft snow, happy carving the slopes, and is best for intermediate to good skiers that want pleasure and accessibility before pure performance.
According to one of the reviewers, it’s like being on a ‘rail’. The i Speed is a true giant ski, and is remarkably stable and incisive. Despite its rigid tail that inconvenienced some of the lighter reviewers, the i Speed will suit heavier excellent skiers and competitors.
An excellent ski for beginners, the Absolute Joy is limited by its relatively poor performance in carving which pulls down its score for adaptability in this category. A very good ski for beginners and false beginners.
