Reviewer Heyman

"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."

To all my reviews

 

All-mountain ski with an illustriuous name


The Head all-mountain ski Integrale 009 presumes toughness and cutting edge ability. Why? The agressive looks, the name that is similar to the famous Lancia Integrale, and even the number 009. Will this ski live up to its illustrious name?
No it doesn't, although it is very stable at high speed. I must confess that the tip doesn't vibrate in the least bit as most front rockered all-mountain skis do. My guess is that the lack of vibration is caused by the lack of rocker. I couldn't discover any rocker, or at most zero coma zero zero zero zero zero cinco %.

No off-piste

Don't take the Integrale 009 off-piste. It is much too rigid for that kind of terrain. I found that this ski even has problems handling a little loose snow on-piste. And you don't want to come across a steep bumpy piste. Switching to old-school technique is out of the question, so no sliding turns here.

Head about the Integrale 009

"The Integrale 009 is for performance schizophrenics. Extremely convenient and easy to handle", says Head. The Integrale 009 carves nice big turns. But it just is not my kind of ski. Maybe my hopes were too high. This ski is in between everything.
