Skier Ability: Lower Intermediate to Upper Intermediate: Skiing all sorts of blue runs, starting to get off trail and into advanced (black diamond) territory, but at controlled speeds.

Speed: Fast: At this speed, these skiers are passing most of the others on blue square runs, and keeping up with most skiers on black diamond runs.

You can only use Railflex bindings with this ski. If you already own a pair you can slide them on the plate, otherwise you should choose one from the dropdown list above.

Ideal Target Skier: Casual Cruiser: Sticking mainly to the groomed runs and always keeping speed in check, a Casual Cruiser doesn't even bother with the off trail snow, moguls, jumps, etc.

The Head Cool Thang is a smooth, easy turner that is always there as your ability improves. Great for any intermediate level skier who wants a ski that will allow progression to the next level with out having to get a new ski every year.

The Head R&D has shaved off weight underneath the binding, creating a unique, lightweight ski for a smooth ride in all conditions, while making it one of the lightest skis on the market. though marketed to women, it is a great choice for anyone that is not an aggressive heavy skiers over 200lbs.

Head's Intelligence technology: is essentially an array of fibers inside of the ski or snowboard that absorb the mechanical energy that your muscles are putting into the ski, and convert them to electrical energy. The more energy the fibers absorb, the stiffer the ski becomes. So the faster you go the more stable this ski is. We were the first one to say that this was just some gimmick jargon, but the stuff actually works.
