That's true, but I should add that I'm pretty sure that the Richie will no longer be sold to the general public next season. I think it might still be available as a special-order ski, but it's not going to be part of Head's regular lineup for the upcoming season.
That ski (the Richie) has more-or-less been replaced by the new (2010/11) Jerry model. The Jerry is somewhat similar to the Richie in terms of flex, but has a little more sidecut and also has a mild early rise at the tip. The Jerry skis, really, REALLY nicely.
