The Monster is back from the dead! That's right, hot off the success of the Joy series skis, Head revived one of their most renowned skis, the Monster Series. These skis feature Graphene technology which reinforces the ski keeping it stiff and responsive but very lightweight at the same time. The Monster also has All Ride Era 3.0 rocker so they'll hold up in soft snow and high speeds without blinking. At 83mm in the waist this ski is primarily for the front side groomers, but will hold up just fine in the trees and moguls.

Description

Details

Free Binding Mounting: We will mount you 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.

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.

Wood Core: The standard core which has throughout time provided the best performance and durability. Each model may have it's own density level to help define flex and maximum speed but every wood core ski will be solid.

Tip Rocker: This refers to the early rising of the tip to get the ski on top of the soft snow, rather than pushing through it. When the skis are held with the bases together, it will look like the tips are bent, and spread away from eachother. Tip rocker also helps skiers pivot the skis, making tight trees remarkably easy, and gives the ski a surf-like feel.

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.

Ideal Target Skier: East Coast Hardpack Lover: This is an excellent ski for East Coast skiers that ski aggressively on the hardpack while still getting off trail a bit. West Coast skiers: this is a carving ski that should only be brought out when the powder is gone and its time to rip the groomers.

Expert Binding Choices: Some of the binding options (i.e. the Head GTO 15) available for this ski have high din ranges that start at 8 or 9. A very small percentage of skiers will be suitable for these bindings. If you know that you usually set your din at 8 or above, you are in the clear for a high din binding. Otherwise, those bindings are for EXPERT SKIERS ONLY!

Speed: Very Fast: Skiing at this speed means keeping up with the best skiers on the mountain, while still maintaining control.

Works as advertisedReview by Jim

There are no suprises here...the ski works exactly as stated. Almost every review comments on the skis strength on groomers and versatility when the snow gets a bit choppy. I'll add a few of my experiences that sit outside these professional reviews.

A bit about me:
In 30+ years I've got about 800 days on snow.
PSIA & CSIA & AASI cert.
Wt=210lb

Skis: 170cm
Bindings: aaattack13
Test day: 20'F, fresh snow overnight and light snow during the day

When I went into the trees for some freshies, the skis handled very nicely in 6" of pow. Very smooth and light and turned on a dime. At the bottom on the runs where it's tracked out and full of ruts, it still holds but, depending on speed it doesn't offer the kind of stability I was hoping for at 83mm.
Edge hold on groomers is great...up to ~45mph. Maybe I should have gone with 177s, but i wasn't able to hold the rail every turn.
This is my new"teaching" ski. I'm happy with it's versatility, but disappointed that I have to hold back. Truly a great "Jack of all trades but master of none". (Posted on 12/26/2016)
