Waist Width: 80
The i.Supershape Titan is the widest and most all mountain-focused ski in the Supershape series, with a 133 mm tip and 80 mm waist (at 170 cm). This tip is designed to be just big enough for mowing through powder and other varied conditions, while the waist is designed to be just skinny enough to rip turns on hardpack snow. Its 14.3 meter radius (at 170 cm) is also quite short, making this a more slalom-style ski that is built to make quick and snappy turns. For a similar ski that's slightly skinnier, check out the i.Supershape Rally. And for other similar carving-focused skis from Head, check out the i.Supershape Magnum and i.Supershape Speed. The Supershape Series specializes in race-like skis designed to perform both inside and outside of the gates. WC Sandwich Cap Construction includes a variety of materials including Graphene (Head says this is "the strongest, lightest and thinnest material known to mankind") and titanal, collectively designed for responsiveness and power. Speed Rocker lifts tips up and off the ground earlier than a traditional ski, intended to initiate turns easier and avoid any hooking. KERS technology stiffens the tail on your way out of each turn, designed to keep edges locked down on the ground instead of getting tossed all over the mountain. Whether you're trying to catch up with Ted Ligety, trying to win your local beer league, or just trying to go make some smooth groomer turns, this might be the best series Head has to offer you. Head, based in Kennelbach, Austria, was founded in 1950. Its U.S. headquarters are in Boulder, Colorado.
