Reviewer Ell

"The ultimate giant slalom ski has a very high stability, is heavy and stiff enough to cut through snow bumps at the and of the day. You always know where this ski goes: straight down until you give it a new direction!"

Fast and playful


The Head Worldcup Rebels i.Speed is for those who want to do a lot of skiing on groomers, but overall or secretly just go fast. It feels like a real race ski, but still OK for a recreational sportive skier who has the skills to control the speed. The Worldcup Rebels i.Speed ski is not as heavy as some giant slalom skis, but still a serious speedy one. It doesn't punish you if you're not perfectly in the right position, just stay active and have some fun. The Worldcup Rebels i.Speed ski has a very good edge grip and also allows you to make short turns as well. Sliding at the end of a turn is not a problem, so also some moments of a bit more relaxed skiing is possible. Long turns are very stable just be careful when switching from edge to edge as it may be a little uncomfortable like a slalom ski and it might feel a little bit shaky or nervous as you wish.

Nice and comfortable

This was one of the skis I really wanted to try at least once. Years ago I was a real Head fan and I always saw good ski teachers skiing the Head Worldcup Rebels i.Speed ski. I just found out that heavier skis better fit me. Thats why I give it four stars. I really think a lot of good, sportive skiërs wil like this ski and the most of them will have a really hard job to control this ski. If you want, you can learn a lot and improve yourself on the Head Worldcup Rebels i.Speed. You do need some basic skills of course. Head says it is the fastest ski on earth, I would say the fastest recreative ski on earth that doesn't kill you!

Head about the Worldcup Rebels i.Speed

"Get ready to see the speed of light. A lot of courage needed", says Head. Maybe a bit exaggerated, but fast it is.
