The Mya No. 6, with its 79-mm waist, is a trail-oriented all-mountain generalist aimed at intermediate to advanced women. Given its versatility and approachable price, Head expects it to be one of its top selling women's skis. It's sold only as a system, with a 10-DIN Head Mya binding. It's a Sandwich Cap Construction (wood-core laminate layup, with shortened vertical sidewalls, for edge grip, topped by rounded cap-construction shoulders, for a touch of forgiveness). Head's Allride Rocker combines 80 percent camber for edge and rebound with 20 percent tip rocker for soft-snow flotation and shock absorption. All Mya women's models feature Head's ERA 3.0 design philosophy. The "3.0" refers to the fundamental triad of radius (ie. sidecut), rebound (ie. flex), and rocker. Head designs all ERA skis so that these three fundamentals work in harmony, specifically adding more width at the tip so that the introduction of tip rocker doesn't compromise turn initiation.
