Head Cyber 24X


1998 Executive-Silver Medal Winner

Size: 170-200 cm
Price: $550
Details: With the exception of bounding slalom turns, the strong Head Cyber 24X can do it all. It's a confidence-builder with a fun streak. "And who needs slalom turns anyway!" exclaimed Shelton. "This ski handles everything else, dependably." Granted, bump runs and short turns are decidedly not the Cyber 24X's strong suit, but comfort and stability are. If medium- to high-speed, smooth turns are your pleasure, you'll love the ski's ability to handle quick terrain changes unperturbed.

Positives: Silky-smooth in medium-length turns
Negatives: A slight phobia for snappy slalom turns
