Head WC Rebels iShape Pro reviews 2018

Men's skis 2018 > Easy Cruisers

Best performance!

A bit "overpowered" for this category, the iShape Pro from Head is not a tool for the inexperienced. It’s docile as long as you already have good technical skills under your belt. At medium speeds with a well-positioned rider, it’s really easy to enter and hold rock steady turns. Entering carved turns is intuitive and the ski will hold a steady speed as it engages in relatively dynamic turns. On... Read on

Best Accessibility!

An excellent surprise in the 2018 review, the Kore 93 designed by Head impressed the PROSKILAB reviewers and deserves its place among the top skis on the market. The model has no qualms about concentrating on accessibility in an area in which it's very popular. Overall behavior both on and off piste is good, and it also has a playful nature that’s great fun. The ski is globally easy-going, and doesn’t... Read on

Head Supershape i.Magnum reviews 2018

Men's skis 2018 > Carvers

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.

Head WC Rebels i.Speed reviews 2018

Men's skis 2018 > Giant slalom

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.

Head WC rebels i.SL reviews 2018

Men's skis 2018 > Slalom

A good ski overall, but the WC Rebels i.SL suffers from a slight lack of performance compared to its more race-oriented rivals. The ski is very flexible for this category and has real qualities in terms of comfort and accessibility. While it's globally efficient, it struggles a little when pushed to its limits. At very high speed on hard pack, it's difficult to anchor correctly and hard to keep up the pressure. The reviewers were a bit disappointed by an overall lack of energy, especially the lack of momentum coming out of turns.

However,... Read on

Head Epic Joy SLR reviews 2018

Women's skis 2018 > Cruisers

The Epic Joy by Head has obviously put the emphasis on lightness, an important factor for ladies' skis. The ski is incredibly light underfoot. Very easy in turn initiation, happy in skid turns, it’s really easy to steer until you reach medium speeds. At full throttle, especially on hard pack, it slows down. The ski loses its stability, pressure is less consistent, and it's a lot more challenging to steer.
The Epic Joy is a good early stage ski that would certainly have shined in our old "Intermediate women's cruisers"... Read on
