The Framewall is a park and pipe ski that utilizes Head's signature Framewall technology, which integrates a 3D sidewall designed to lower the chance of delamination (top sheet is designed to be less prone to damage via an angled sidewall). Any freestyle skier knows that a peeling top sheet is a likely occurrence, and this is Head's attempt to change that to an unlikely occurrence. The ski also has a relatively wide 121 mm tip (at 181 cm) designed for when you take it outside of the park to moderate powder and other varied conditions. The Twintip series is head's freestyle-specific series, containing skis designed for people spending time in the park and wherever else they can catch air. Sandwich Twintip Construction is designed to be lightweight, yet durable, and PNP Rocker, what Head calls a "pair of wings for skis," lifts the tips and tails off the ground while keeping the underfoot section on the ground and cambered, designed for pop and playfulness. Head, based in Kennelbach, Austria, was founded in 1950. Its U.S. headquarters are in Boulder, Colorado.
