Head Strong Instinct Ti Skis w/ PRX 11 Bindings

The Head Strong Instinct Ti is as versatile of a ski as they come. It checks pretty much all the boxes one looks for in a high end ski from rocker to titanium layers in sidewalled sandwich type layup. These skis have a nose for fun as we found during testing. They are eager to be layed over on an edge where their exaggerated sidecut takes hold and the tight 14.2 meter turn radius and rocker let you 'pull some G's.' That rocker also keeps you on top of snow should you find your way into a bit of powder skiing. Really this ski is constructed similarly to racing skis which is shares most of its technology with. That aggressive sidecut is complemented with layers of titanium and Graphene - a brand spanking new material straight out of research institutes named with long acronyms. What that all means for a skier are snappy rebound out of turns with predictable and firm edge hold into the next in the virtual absence of vibration that so often plagues skis handling variable terrain at high speeds. Plus these skis come with a PRX 11 binding that is great for almost any skier so their is no guess work about what to mount on them.
