Head Supershape i.Magnum 2018

Reviewed by PROSKILAB

PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments

The Supershape i.Magnum is very much a short turn ski, an area it excels in thanks to the fast edge to edge transfer, easy turn initiation, good bite and lively rebound. However, the ski is far less happy when we try to extend the turns. It’s a good tool for riders looking for a slalom ski that will rip down the slopes in very dynamic short turns.

Review: Pros

  • Responsive in short turns
  • Easy turn initiation
  • Fast edge to edge transfer
  • Great grip

Review: Cons

  • A specialized short turn ski, it's noticeably less happy in long turns

Manufacturer's remarks

Just like champagne, it’s the ski for special occasions, to ski and slice turns at top speed.
