Advanced+ level all-mountain skier Heyman's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
en-US - * - 4286
"A good frontside all-mountain ski is an agressive carver to lay trenches on the groomers and should also be able to handle bumps, skied of pistes and up to 10cm of fresh snow. A combination of a sportive character and comfort."
The Head Integrale 007 is no fullblooded killer. It is a very friendly all-mountain ski with excellent carving qualities. The little front rocker makes it responsive to uneven terrain and loose snow. Where it's bigger brother the Head Integrale 009 demands excellent skiing skills, the Integrale 007 supports a more relaxed skiing style. The Integrale 007 features Head's 'Intellirise rebound' technology. In simple words what this technology does, is keeping the front of the ski soft at moderate speed and making the front stiff at high speed. Brilliant theory, but does it work? Well, the tip doesn't vibrate at high speed. And at lower speed I found the tip quite forgiving and responsive to little bumps and loose snow. So yes, I think it may work.
007 or Smoke Ti
The Head Integrale 007 is in the same category as the Atomic Smoke Ti. I found the Atomic Smoke Ti more versatile, more agressive and better at high speed. So the Smoke would be my choice. Sorry old chap.
Head about the Integrale 007
"For true all-rounders. This ski is perfect for easy rides on sunny Sunday afternoons. But don’t try to provoke it. It turns very fast into a merciless carving beast.", according to Head. Yes, it is a very good cruiser and if you really want to, you can ski it agressively as well.
