Review for head ski
af Abdulla, 16. jun. 2022
The Head Oblivion is a highly manoeuvrable park ski with plenty of Rocker in the tip and tail to make jumps easier and increase manoeuvrability.
The Woodcore Sandwich Twin Tip construction delivers stability on hard snow, while the scratch-resistant topsheet ensures durability.
The Oblivion 79 belongs in the park and in the pipe. It is designed for high jumps and soft landings. Its manoeuvrability also makes kicker jumps easier.
This ski comes with a Directional Twin shape, the nose is a few millimetres wider than the tail, with a central binding position. Thus, the ski offers you forward and switch, good riding characteristics. However, thanks to the slightly wider nose you get a little more lift in soft snow.
The Oblivion comes with a classic Camber under the binding and a Rocker section in the nose. This keeps the ski extremely manoeuvrable and gives it an enormous uplift. The Camber offers you good edge hold and fast power transmission.
The woodcore makes for a quick-reacting ski that holds in any position. The UHM base comes from racing technology and guarantees speed in every situation. Tuff sidewalls round off the Oblivion and provide the necessary durability.
Ski er som regel leveret klar til brug med en vokset base og slebede kanter. Men denne såkaldte fabriksklargøring er ikke særlig holdbar og dine nye ski bør vokses efter et par dage og vedligholdes på regelmæssig basis.
A leap of faith and a whole lot of persistence lead Howard Head to create the first aluminum ski with steel edges and a snow-resistant top sheet. Head spearlined the development of skis as we know them today, and their skis are still among the best in the world.
