Pros: Balance, flexibility, long turns
Ski: Head Super Shape Magnum
Tested Length: 177
Turn Radius: 13 meters
Price w/binding: $1,100
The Good: Balance, flexibility, long turns
The Bad: Forgiveness
Verdict: A balanced, powerful ski that likes hard snow and a rapid pace, the Super Shape Magnum does favor a medium turn radius for technically-oriented skiers who really like to drive their skis. Try to throw too many variables at it, like a rapid shift in snow conditions, and that performance level drops.
