Head iSupershape Rally, a Great Ski for hardpack and groomed snow

Posted

Pros: High performance, good edge hold, easy for an expert to ski. Makes any shape turn you want.

Cons: None for the purpose intended.

My background is 6'1", 188 lbs., former racer, teacher, coach but in mid 70s and prefer to ski fast.  Ski a lot in the upper Midwest and NE on hard pack/groomed snow and bought these skis for that purpose in a 177cm length of more stability in medium and long radius turns.  Very pleased with their performance.  Also, no trouble making shorter radius turns with the longer length.  Overall impression was of a high performance carving ski with plenty of energy if you skied hard but really easy to ski if you didn't.  Love them but will use my Dynastar Outland 87s for powder/crud days.  No ski satisfies all conditions which provides the rationale for...

Really fun ski if you know how to put the ski on edge

Pros: Smooth, precise, no surprises, stable, maneuverable, high energy fun

Cons: It is what it is...a superb groomer ski, not an all mountain ski. This isn't a con, just a clarification.

I rented and skied these for six days at Solden, Austria.  Wow, fun.  The only ski I've been able to carve a 180° arc.  The snow ranged from soft pack to firm to ice.  This ski was under me, reliable, fun, no worries for every turn.  I'm 6', 190#, very good skier, and the 170 cm length was just right.  I'd buy them if I didn't already have their brother, the Head Icon TT800.

A great hard snow ski that will not wear you out

Pros: A steal of a deal at this price point

Cons: None that I can think of. Maybe that it will take a while to get the permagrin off your face?

Review: Head has done a stellar job with the evolution of the Magnum collection especially on the wider end of the series and for the discussion here, specifically with new for 2014 Supershape Rally.    Initial impressions: The Rally fits neatly in between the familiar Magnum and the redesigned Titan (which grew to 80mm underfoot). The Rally, at an advertised 76mm underfoot (the 177 is 77mm)  has a turn radius in the mid 13-14 meter range. This is a completely new ski for Head for this season and by golly, they did their homework with it. First, the binding system for this whole series has been revamped, the Powerrail Pro system is lower, easier to adjust and more...
