Head Monster iM 78 SW (2008)

Head Monster iM 78 SW (2008)

Damp, quiet, slinky, and deft: You’ll find these qualities in the Monster 78. Its ability to knock off any turn shape and bash crud made it reliable for a wide variety of testers.

Props

The 78 skis longer than its length but turns short enough to skip through tight trees.

Gripes

If you’re more into powder, try the Monster 82; it’s a bit floatier and more stable.

Tester's Take

"Makes you want to ski top to bottom all day no matter what the conditions." —Alex Shaffer
