If your winter days consist of incessantly perfecting your form, constantly slipping the race course and meticulously tuning your skis, we strongly recommend the Head WC Rebel GS skis. Mind you, this is a GS Race ski but it is not FIS approved (sidecut/turn radius restricted) but instead is intended for speed junkies who aren't ever going fast enough. Perfect for any amateur "Beer League" race or simply as a high performance "Deer Valley" cruiser (Deer Valley is known for their expansive groomed terrain). We have curated a list of compatible race bindings that we know will work great with this ski, but who are we kidding we know you have already done your research!

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: Racer: Always pushing the limit of top speed, these skiers get in trouble from Ski Patrol on occasion, and are always the fastest skiers on the mountain.

Racing Finish: The edges and bases are prepared for World Cup race level precision. The bases are ground as flat as possible using modern tuning equipment, and have a fine structure laid for reduced friction.

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.

Intelligence Technology: Allows for a transfer of energy throughout the ski to provide stabilization at higher speeds. When the ski begins to shake in front of the binding electricity is transmitted forward through the ski to stiffen it up, thus anticipating the vibration (chatter) and reducing it.

UHM C Base: The most durable, quickest base material on the market. It requires very little maintenance and allows your skis to do what they are made to do until you decide you've hit so many rocks that it needs a tune.

Racing Lifter Plate: To get extra edging power, this ski features a plate that the bindings mount directly to. The plate gives skiers extra leverage to roll the ski up on edge, and to hold that edge, especially on hard snow and ice. Plates like this are typically found on racing skis, and other high performance skis that specialize in groomed run performance.
