What are these "Head Skis"?

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Following is an ad in Hong Kong promoting their "snow wear", regardless how wrong are those models in ski gear, what is most interesting are those two pairs of "skis". Can some one identify the model for me?

Nice ski boots and bindngs too. They look like mock-ups made by a non skier. The whole ad speaks non skier

Those are the new supershapes. HH will have you carving like a champ on those things in no time...

Carving?? Come on man. It's all about flatboarding. What has HH got over TCS?

Don't forget, I was the one who discovered TCS and "interoduced" to you guys in the first place.

I think those things look like peices of paper that had some head graphics printed on them. Doesn't explain the tails sticking up, but thats my guess.

I'm almost positive that they are new model that Bode has been working on with Head

Maggot you are sooooo wrong


these are the latest twin tip Heads , the ones with the Stick-on-peal-off , a huge breakthrough that will replace the traditional bindings. They use proprietary technology that was first introduced by the crazy guys at super glue.
They also feature the new assymetrical axis technology that enables all kind of turns with a different mid point for each ski .

Not pictured is the all-new software that can turn your garage into off-piste heaven .

I guess Skiholicsthathaventskiedfor6months (or 6 years ) is a serious and infectious disease , better pray for snow or i dont know what we ll see posted on epic.:

I actually just scored a pair of these off of Tokyo Craigslist!

They're 166 underfoot, tips and tails are suprisingly narrow (98) and they are reverse camber at the tip and tail before they curve up (they are heightened twins with at least 5cm upturn). they have regular camber underfoot. Turning radius is 72. In terms of sidecut? It's pretty damn minimal. They only come in one size: 225.

I think they're going to be the most bomber fat powder plank on the market once Head officially unveils them sometime next season (I heard rumors that they wanted K2 and Armada to gain a false sense of domination in the over-sized powder ski market before blowing the doors off the ski world at large).

You better sell those Spats to VA. With those aweome reverse camber fatties made by head you'll have to use for them. Congratulation on such an awesome purchase. You lucky dog. I like the way they mold themselves to the terrain for a full contact ski feel. The got penty of float, should carve nicely with so much edge in contact.
The only worry you might have is delamination since this is a new product and it is hard to say how it will stand up over time.

Actually, I think I'mma try and sell for profit on TGR. Since they're more bomber than the Praxis, ARG, and Lotus 138 combined!!!

But Dorkey, can you please read the serial number off the side for me? The pressure is unbearable.

You just mash them in the middle and ease back a little
