Reviewer Alex

"I like that great surfy feeling of skiing in powder snow like most people do. On extreme days a pure rocker ski is nice but usually I prefer the combination with camber. That challenges me more and supplies versatility."

Versatile freeride ski

The Head Collective 105 is a great freeride ski with the bonus of versatility that makes it maneuverable on any terrain. Freerides skis like this suit me so well. You don't have to be an expert to ski in powder. Head says you should, but I have great runs on them too. Work as hard as you want, the Collective 105 helps you enjoy the ride. It prefers powder, but no worries if you need to do some pistes as well.

On- and off-piste

On the piste, softer groomers, even a nice carving turn is possible. Combined with the pow qualities, the Head Collective 105 is so versatile that broad audience will like it. The design is a matter of taste. Personally I like the looks of the Rossignol Soul 7 better, that is the cause of the distinctiveness in rating. Performance is close, so you can let your taste decide. Both are the kind of skis for any day and any condition but the icy groomed slopes.

Head about the Collective 105

"The Collective 105 delivers a responsive fun-filled ride from corduroy and crud to the steep and deeps; how far you take it is up to you. Allride Rocker and a Structured diecut UHM C base are the core of the Collectives versatility, while impact resistant and dampening Tuffwalls, ISS-Independent Suspension System and TTS provide a smooth ride with added durability.", says Head. Maybe a bit cryptic, but the Collective 105 is a good friend of mine now. Comfort in powder and predictable on groomers.
