Head WC Rebels i.Speed review 2018

PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments

Coming in 6th in a review that tests the best skis on the market is not bad at all. The WC i.Speed is a good ski but, like its Slalom cousin, unfortunately lacks some of the oomph found in its race-inspired rivals in the category. The reviewers appreciated the ski’s overall consistency and conviviality, especially in medium turns. We recommend this ski for intermediary to very good riders who love medium turns and want to up their performance.

Review: Pros

  • A well-balanced ski with reassuring behavior
  • Good turn initiation
  • Very lively in medium turns

Review: Cons

  • Limited at high speed and on hard pack, where grip and stability may be wanting

Fasten your seatbelts and hold on tight, the i.SPEED really lives up to its name. An 18.5 radius for some vitamin-packed fun.
