Head debuted graphene—a confoundingly light and strong material—into the tips and tails of the Joy line years ago, and has since integrated the Nobel-prize winning material into the Kore line and Nexo ski boots. The Great Joy is solidly built with an honest, directional feel, and testers appreciated its no-B.S. approach. For those on the verge of carving, the generous tip will pull them right in, though testers noted it got squirrely off edge—a symptom attributed to a tight tune. 

Strength: Quickness, Playfulness

Weakness: Forgiveness
