Head 2011/2012 Skis

A Selection of Head 2011/2012 Skis

By

Head has been been ahead of the curve in ski design and engineering since Howard Head developed the first laminated metal ski in 1947 and they are still making innovations today. Here is a few words from Head-quarters on the 2011-2012 lineup:

"HEAD racers dominated the 2010-11 world cup season capturing seven Globes, more than any other ski brand and won more Gold Medals than any other ski brand at the Garmisch World Championships. That same commitment to success in race skis is seen throughout the 2012 Head family of skis, boots, and bindings."

"Leading innovations such as the all-new Adaptive Fit technology allow skiers to change the width of their boots (and therefore dial into unmatched comfort) with the simple twist of a screw.  Rocker and traditional camber are found in HEAD skis allowing a perfect match for any slope.  HEAD provides a winning combination no matter where or how you ski."

Here's information on a selection of skis from the Head 2011-2012 collection. Read more about these and all the Head skis.
