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."

Deep powder focus

The Head Cyclic 115 is pure freeride. A ski with a large shovel on top and enough float for any amount of powder snow. With such a wide under the foot I expect it to switch a bit slow and that it needs a push on piste. So it went. Turning on piste is fine, just not really direct. It waits a bit before starting to turn. For the powder aspects I only have compliments.

For a wide range of freeriders

Although Head calls Cyclic 115 as only for experts, I think this freeride ski has a broader reach. Once you get the hang of skiing in deep powder, you are fine with the Cyclic 115. Just find the stretches that are not too steep and keep on practising. With a bigger shovel than the Salomon Rocker2 122, you can feel confident not to dive. If the Head Cyclic is also great for the experts with excellent ski technique, which I am not, you can go a long way with this freeride ski. As I find the Cyclic 115 behaving a bit uncertain on groomers, I'll give it 4 stars. Cyclic's brother the Head Collective 105 ski's more direct on piste, has more maneuverability.

Head about the Cyclic 115

"The Cyclic 115 with TNT Rocker is an agile, versatile freeride ski with superior handling and control. Tuffwalls and Sandwich Cap Construction make it tough enough to take a beating out of bounds, while the dampening of ISS-Independent Suspension System and torsional strength of TTS deliver a smooth ride with reduced swing weight for big mountain trickery.", says Head. All adventure in deep powder, yes. Groomers are just to take you to the lift, it's hard work there. No problem, these skis are for powder.
