Head’s reputable Supershape series of efficiency piste skis currently kicks back a core of 5 skis, called otherwise e-Speed, e-Titan etc. There is a nod to timeless designs however what does the ‘e’ stand for?

A cynic could state it stands for a public relations individual’s need to attract a more youthful tech-obsessed target market (if such a target market exists beyond emphasis teams), yet Head’s representative informed us there is scientific research behind it, in the kind of ‘EM C’ or power administration circuit. Supposedly a conductor runs around the ski as well as transforms flappy kinetic power right into electric power.

Frankly the pitch from Head is so woolly we half anticipated to see a USB port on the bindings, yet alas not. Whether there is anything important behind this depends nearly totally on real life screening right, so maybe ideal to play down the pseudo-science?

So the Supershape e-Magnum takes it’s signs from the older designs which have actually excited us at Snow in the past. The geometry stays the exact same making turn initiation and also side hold excellent. Allow’s simply clear up another factor; Head’s very own internet site defines the e-Magnum as being ‘all-terrain’ and also for ‘on as well as off piste’ also while the slider graphics higher the web page reveal it called completely to the ‘on piste’ side. This is a piste ski as well as we checked it.

One impact of the technology is to enhance wetting, as well as this does show up to improve what was currently a really smooth trip. It likewise declares to indicate the ski can be much less rigid as well as consequently much more obtainable to even more individuals; in method the flex is flexible as well as transforms can be compelled around conveniently. When the rate is cranked the tail appears to tense up and also can spew you out of turns if your strategy isn’t called in (i.e. when flagging in the direction of the end of the day!)

The Supershape e-Magnum includes some seriously overwhelmed advertising and marketing, however underneath all that is an extremely qualified as well as enjoyable piste efficiency ski which will certainly function truly well for high intermediates as well as breakthrough skiers.
