Reviewer Craig

"All-mountain skis will be my choice when conditions vary from firm to 6" of fresh snow. Better edge hold and carving capabilities should be expected compared to my powder skis. They should be competent in crud and soft bumps."

I tested the Head Supershape i.Titan in a 177cm length. This skis receives a "very good" overall rating on piste conditions. Very good carving characteristics, and good stability at speed. Transition over skied off areas is also very good, although I expected higher edge grip for this category. The Supershape uses "KERS" technology, which is claimed to harness vibration and change (stiffen) the characteristics of the ski, and increase pop at the end of the turn. This reminds me of the "HDT" technology used by Renoun skis, and both of these technology's seem effective. The i.Titan does a good job of blending quick edge change, good stability, and damping, for a stiff flexing ski. The 177cm length seemed correct, and I did not see a reason to downsize. Normally, I ski the next size down from most companies longest length, sometimes, as with this HEAD, I will ski the longest length available. This is a great choice if you spend most of your time on-piste.

Bumps

Good-very good, with quick edge change, in these tested softer-medium sized moguls. The HEAD Supershape i.Titan is a stiff ski, and if bumps are your preferred terrain, there are better choices in this approximate 80mm underfoot width. The new Liberty V-82 would be one to consider.

Powder

Not available for this test. At 80mm underfoot the i.Titan skis stiff flex will not make for a floaty ride, but its wide tip, and stability will be a bonus.
