Head Frame Wall Skis 2017-2018
Words like “stable,” “stiff,” “aggressive,” “responsive,” “poppy” and “durable” were used frequently by testers to describe the Frame Wall. The latter adjective is an especially noteworthy one; durability is the ski’s defining trait. You see, the Frame Wall utilizes a one-of-a-kind sidewall (its namesake) that covers the topsheet’s perimeter to prevent chipping and de-lamination. Not to be overlooked is the ski’s carving prowess. “Stiff and full of energy, it held edge perfectly and had no chatter coming into larger jumps,” said one tester. “Crush park one minute then crush groomers the next.” A sandwich construction and traditional camber lend to this railing prowess. Rubber in the tip, tail and underfoot cut down on that vibration, and a hint of tip and tail rocker lend to maneuverability.
