Reviewer Steef

"For me skiing on piste is all about testing the limits of speed and grip of the skis, both slalom and giant slalom. Comfort and flex are less important to me than stability. Skiing is supposed to take a lot of energy out of you."

To all my reviews

 

Both slalom and giant slalom ski?


The Head i.Supershape Speed skis will take you out for a speed ride with an invitation for short slalom turns. Or fast long turns with a huge amount of grip. Precise handling and effortless carving without being too edgy or scaring you in an aggressive manner. The skis feel stiff and at the same time very frisky. Sides exchange goes very light and easy. The skis especially ask you to make short turns. They wonderfully pop out of corners asking you to do that again in the next turn. No lack of gradient, you really can lean them over a hell of a lot without loosing any grip. Giant slalom turns no problem either, however they feel as if they are more constructed for the slalom turns.

Head about the i.Supershape Speed

"The purely race carve oriented Supershape with its legendary race oriented sidecut.", says Head. And racecarving is what these ski's are good for. Bit more to the slalom side than the giant slalom side for me. If you are looking for good cornering skis with lots of grip and easy handling? This is your ski. You don’t have to get used to these, just put them on and ski as if you never rode any other ski. A 4 start quality piste ski for me. Too bad it is not for sale in North America, or let me know where.ise ski. You take this one out for that perfect sunny day on a quiet and well prepared steep track.
