Head introduced Graphene—a futuristic, transparent, carbon-based laminate (one atom thick!) that’s 200 times stronger than the strongest steel—with its Joy line years ago, and the stuff has proved so amazing the brand finally integrated it into the men’s line last year. The Great Joy is so bomber you can stomp on the gas even in set-up crud and hardly even notice what’s under your feet. It’s flexible underfoot and grippier at the tip and tail, giving it a reassuring heft of a much heavier ski. One-ski-quiver ski, to be sure. “It read my mind. Powerful yet nimble,” Humes said. “My favorite ski of the day.”
