Waist Width: 83
The Monster 83 is the skinniest ski in the Monster series, with a 125 mm tip, 83 mm waist, and 110 mm tail (at 177 cm). These dimensions are designed for optimal carving performance, while also getting the job done in powder. Its 18 m radius (at 177 cm) designed for a wide variety of turns depending on what terrain the day presents you with. For something wider and slightly more all mountain-focused, check out the Monster 88, Monster 98, and Monster 108. The all-new Monster Series specializes in skis designed to go everywhere, whether it's groomers, powder, or whatever other snow conditions you may be presented with. Camber underfoot is integrated for carving when the snow's not too deep, while Allride Rocker lifts tips up and over powder and other varied terrain, designed for floatation and better turn initiation. WC Sandwich Cap Construction is built to hold everything together with 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. If you like to ski a little bit of everything, this is one of 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.
