Head V-Shape 8 2019
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
The Head V-Shape 8 is a relatively soft ski that will help you progress. It lacks some of the liveliness sought after in this category.
The ski is super fun as long as you don't try to go too fast. Lightweight, smooth, soft, and easy to use; it will forgive mistakes and deliver great sensations.
However, when you pick up the pace on hard snow and steep slopes, the ski quickly shows its limits. Edge grip is less solid, and the ski doesn’t always hold the line.
The V-Shape 8 is a good ski that is accessible and smooth at moderate speed. We recommend it for light to average-sized intermediate to advanced skiers, looking for smooth effortless performance mainly for recreational use.
- Carves well at low to moderate speeds
- Performance is limited at high speed, on hard pack, and steep slopes
- Not good for heavier skiers

Who's it for?
All-terrain skis that pack a punch. This winter's most versatile weapons of war: frontside, backside, fast speeds, slow sleeps - they can cope with anything! The wood and metal core gives them agility and rebound. They will help you progress to the next level.
