Head Supershape I.Magnum 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers comments
The Supershape I.Magnum from Head has been well-known for several years and is a real market success.
Its reputation is based on its ease of use and ability to carve at moderate speeds. PROSKILAB's pro testers agreed with this. The ski is very accessible and requires little technique. Turn initiation is easy, although not very quick, and carving at moderate speeds is a walk in the park.
The Supershape I.Magnum is a soft ski for this category. It doesn't quite make the grade in terms of pure performance and gets into trouble at high speeds or on hard pack. The ski finds it difficult to grip in the turn, and the line becomes less precise.
The Supershape I.Magnum from Head is a very good ski for intermediate to advanced skiers who want to learn to carve at low to moderate speeds on an easy and forgiving ski.
- Easy to pivot and initiate turns
- Decent performance at low to moderate speeds
- Versatile – good at skidded and carved turns
- Good ski-snow contact
- Too soft
- Limited edge grip at high speed
- Lacks rebound at the end of the turn
- Lacks precision at high speed
