Ski review alert: Head Supershape i.Magnum
Head are experts when it comes to building skis for speed and carving and the i.Magnums are a perfect example of this. The Supershape series is made 100% for the piste and for those riders who crave the adrenaline from a quick chase down the slopes.
The Head Supershape i.Magnum are made to perfect those short turns. This doesn’t mean that you can’t do long turns, on the contrary, we experienced that they are just as good. The combination of 72 mm on the waist and the turning radius makes the ski very agile and maneuverable.
Still, the i.Magnum skis are meant for the more experienced riders, from advanced intermediates to experts, so in order to get the best out of them, you need the leg power. Once you get used to the skis, they are very responsive and fun to ride.
Head has put quite a lot of thought into the construction of the Supershape i.Magnum skis so that they can do exactly what they are meant for. The KERS technology at the back makes the ski pop on the outcoming of the turn. We could definitely feel it working so you will charge out of the turn with tons of power, ready for the next one, and the next one, and the next.
Head introduced Graphene into their skis some time ago and the success continues. What you get, also with the i.Magnum skis is lightness and strength without compromising on performance and stability. If anything else, the Head Supershape i.Magnum are extremely stable skis that will take you down the piste with perfectly executed turns and great speed.
Final verdict: The Head Supershape i.Magnum are skis for the experienced skiers who can take advantage of all the performance-enhancing technologies. You can definitely feel each one of those and trust those skis because stability is their thing.
