The Absolut Joy is in the middle of the Joy series skis, it's great for intermediate to advanced skiers who prefer the groomed runs, but may follow the family into the woods occasionally. This 79mm wide ski features Era 3.0 rocker for easy turning and float in soft snow and all-new Graphene technology that simultaneously lightens up the ski while making it stronger (amazing right?). The Joy 11 binding comes included which has a DIN range from 3-11 and is adjustable to a wide range of women's boot sizes (255-338mm). Performance aside, this is one of the sleekest women's skis we have ever seen with clean lines and a simple, yet refined graphic. At any rate, we know you will "absolutely" find joy on the mountain with these skis, see what I did there?

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount your ski bindings for free whenever you order skis and bindings. If you order boots, too, we can adjust them so they are ready to hit the slopes right out of the box! Just be sure to fill out the mounting form that comes up after checkout.

Highly Transparent UHM Base: A nifty looking and lightning quick base.

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.

Joy 11 Binding Included: The Joy 11 binding comes included with this ski with a DIN range of 3-11 and slides on to the Super Lite Rail track that's adjustable to pretty much any ladies boot size 255-338mm.

Sandwich Construction (SW): SW means that the sides of the skis are a vertical wall rather the the rounded Cap construction forund on most skis. Since none of the skis material needs to be exerting force maintaining shape at the edges, SW skis are stiffer than their Cap counterparts. Most people find SW skis to be damper, that is more glued to the snow, superior at high speed GS turns and top notch at busting through crud or choppy snow.

Composite Core: This ski features a composite core, which has a softer flex and is lighter weight than wood cores. Junior, entry level, and sometimes even women's models have this type of core to make skiing more enjoyable, and less work.

Skier Ability: Intermediate to Advanced: Sometimes these skiers are intermediate, and on a good day, they are advanced, but hard to commit to one level. They can ski most places on the mountain, sometimes with a little difficulty, but always making it down without crying and calling ski patrol.

Era 3.0 Rocker/Camber: Head combines Rocker for flotation in soft snow, a progressive radius for better edge contact and grip, and shock absorption to dampen vibrations.

Textured Surface: Ideal for repelling wear and tear on the skis surface. Textured ski surfaces (aka snakeskin topsheet) are rough surfaces to the ski that hide or repel scratches keep your skis look new long after they are not. Originally designed for rental skis for obvious reasons, this surface is now available on a wide variety of retail skis as well since everyone likes their skis to look nice.

Graphene Technology: GRAPHENE is the first crystal that is two dimensional, giving the material a unique set of properties. It is the thinnest and lightest element ever discovered by mankind. GRAPHENE is also the strongest material on the planet, stronger than diamond and 300 times stronger than steel, all in the thickness of one atom. GRAPHENE is at the center of the new JOY collection, outstanding lightness with a perfectly balanced ski and always in complete control.
