Head Monster 98 Skis – 2016
90 – 99 MM Freeride Ranking: #08
New for 2015-16, the Head Monster 98 Skis cater to those who spend the majority of their time ripping hardpack. “An awesome pair of boards for an aggressive skier,” confirmed one of our testers. Its mid-density silver fir wood core is complemented by Graphene; utilization of this crazy-light, megastrong material frees up space for extra Titanal, yielding top-notch torsional rigidity. A bit of early rise in the tip allows you to be quick and nimble when the time calls. “These bad boys hold a very strong edge, lending great action throughout the turn,” remarked another tester. Go HAM on those top-to-bottom gondi laps, folks.
