The Oblivion belongs to Head's park and pipe collection, but in truth it's a straightahead all-mountain twin-tip that brings the freestyle attitude anywhere on the mountain. A 90-mm waist gives it greater soft-snow versatility than the Caddy, and it sells for about $50 less. (Many shops will offer it for about $400, flat.) Head's park and pipe collection includes three models with distinctly different flavors: dedicated park (the Caddy), all-mountain freestyle (Oblivion No. 2) and versatile value (The Show). All are wood-core constructions, for durability. All feature Head's PNP (park and pipe) rocker profile, with 30 percent tip and tail rocker, for easy spinning and pivoting, and 70 percent camber underfoot for carving into big hits and generating boost. All are sold flat.
