The My No. 8 is similar in shape and application to the men's REV 85. With an 84 mm waist, it's built for all-mountain versatility on hard or soft snow, with a deep, eager-to-carve sidecut radius (13.6 meters). It's sold only as a system, with a 10-DIN Head Mya PR plate and binding. The No. 8 is 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.
