Skier Ability: Beginner to Intermediate: Versatile enough to handle first time skiers all the way up to seasoned intermediates.
Speed: Moderate: The speed at which an intermediate skier travels, Moderate means they like to ski faster than beginners, but are never the fastest skiers on a run.
Fiber Jacket: A solid topsheet that provides a good blend of stability and performance without extra weight.
Synthetic Core: A lightweight flexible ski core designed to help skiers master turning and stay out of harms way by making the ski nimble. Synthetic cores are great for those learning to master the art of skiing because they turn easily, but top speed skiers may prefer stiffer skis.
X-Frame Core: Head's tried and true core technology the crosses the fibers for added strength and stability with minimal weight. Head's top of the line skis have moved on to other core technologies, but X-Frame is rock solid and is why Head's intermediate skis have speed stability more like advanced skis of other brands. We have yet to find one Head ski that does not provide enough stability for even lower advanced skiers and the X-Frame core is the main reason.
Cap Construction: The topsheet of this ski drapes over the edge to form a clean and rounded finish to the side of the ski. This style of construction adds some torsional rigidity, and helps reduce topsheet chipping when the skis hit each other.
