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 98mm wide, this ski makes for a great everyday ski. Whether there is a foot a fresh or you're charging corduroy the Monster 98 will keep you on your feet.

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.

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

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.

Titanium Layer: A thin, but strong layer of Titanium sits under the topsheet of this ski. Not only does it make the ski stronger, it keeps it lighter than other metals, and also creates a dampening effect for the ski. This means it rides smoother over bumpy terrain.

Ideal Target Skier: West Coast All Mountain Skier: Skiers on the west coast will enjoy this ski as an all mountain, do everything model, while skiers on the east coast will find this more suitable for powder skiing, or when there is chopped up crud to be had.

I bought a pair of Head Monster 98s in December '16 because they were the cheapest high end ski I could get and I hadn't bought a new pair in about 15 years. (I've had Heads, Kastles, Olins, K2s, and Volants). I dream of racing and zipperlining. My dad has 8mm film of me skiing when I was 2 in '59 and my mom was on the cover of SKI around '61. But, realistically, I'm only an advanced intermediate because I'm in my late 50s and can't afford to get hurt. But I digress. My HEADs are the best ski I've ever had. They were excellent on groomers, ice, slush,and corn. They like being at speed and on edge. I'd like to try the 108s in powder and 88s in trees. They were serviceable on moguls but I think 88s would be better edge to edge. HEAD suggests mounting 1 cm forward of boot center which I did although I'd like to see how they handle 2 cm forward. Makes me wish I had demo bindings on my monsters.
