The Good

  • Responsive at any speed
  • Best mid-radius turn in the category
  • Fun & playful
  • Excellent edge hold
  • Awesome carving ski

The Bad

  • A little sluggish at short radius turns
  • Most rewarding for stronger skiers
  • Did not own any single category (other than overall performance, that is)
THE VERDICT

Most of the skis in this test were neck and neck in the high-speed, feels almost like a race ski department. While Head's Supershape Titan was right there with the pack, it also keeps performing at slower speeds, all while displaying a greater amount of all-terrain versatility. This ski has the greatest potential to make the greatest range of frontside skiers very happy.

FULL REVIEW

According to one tester, Head’s Supershape Titan has “the ability to let you do whatever you want with it, wherever you want, whether that’s making smooth GS turns while lolling around the mountain, or stepping on the gas and really bending the ski (it’s a noticeable feeling!) and suddently making very aggressive 18 meter turns.” In other words, this ski can make a lot of people happy, whatever their given mountain mood or range of abilities. An 80mm waist width for stability, 10 percent “Speed Rocker” in the shovel for ease of initiation, and a “World Cup Sandwich Construction” for edge hold and carving performance all help make that possible.

The few dings? A slightly sluggish short-radius turn performance, and the fact that its overall performance meant it didn’t own any one single category. Bottomline: The Supershape Titan was right there with all the open slope ready race skis. But then it added a stunning next level of versatility.
