Head Pure Joy Women's Skis w/ Head SLR 9.0 AC Bindings

The Pure Joy is a fairly new ski from Head that has a 72mm waist, Era 3.0 Rocker and brand new lightweight Graphene Technology. What's Graphene you ask? Well, it's an incomparably light and unbelievably strong material that makes skis more responsive. We recommend the Pure Joy for intermediate ladies perfecting their carves on the groomers and venturing off trail from time to time. The Pure Joy is black and teal with a white/pink Joy 9 binding that when put together, looks sleek, vibrant and fast.

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.

Joy 9 SLR Binding Included: The Joy 9 binding comes included with this ski with a DIN range of 2.5-9 and slides on to the Super Lite Rail track that's adjustable to pretty much any ladies boot size 255-338mm.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Carbon Jacket: A superb combination of durability and performance in a ski topsheet available. A carbon jacket will still allow top speeds but also not weight your ski down.

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.

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

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.

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.
