Tester's Review

Already burned out on the muffled rebound of rockered skis? Here's a palate cleanser. The reverse-rockered Supershape Titan, a perennial tester's choice, reintroduces you to the thrill of slingshot rebound across the fall-line. You'll want your rocker-and your mommy-if you wander into deep crud on this thing, but that's not the point. It's for World Cup slalom ace wannabes, who'll seek out the hardest manmade they can find and dice it into bite-sized arcs at top speed. "Blazing quick edge-to-edge," said Moffatt. "Reminds you how fun high-speed carving is." Notes: The Titan is a modified version of the Magnum-by widening the width of the ski by seven millimeters in the tip, waist, and tail, Head aims to make the ultimate groomer weapon. This ski employs KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System)-a chip located near the heel of the binding coverts vibrations of the ski into electrical energy that's then released intotreactive fibers in the tail of the ski. As vibrations increase, the fibers stiffen to increase acceleration and rebound out of a turn-like a turbo-charger for your skis. Similarly, Intelligence Technology uses fibers placed in an argyle pattern in the core, in front of the binding. At faster speeds, vibrations are converted into electrical energy, and the forefront of the ski stiffens up. At slower speeds, the fibers stay limp, making it easier to manipulate. This ski is only available with a binding system: the Free Flex Pro 11 Wide 88 or Pro 14 Wide 88.
