With the Head Collective 105 Ski sitting anxiously in the mud room waiting for ski season to begin, you find yourself daydreaming of fast, fluid turns down steep, big mountains. This ski's Allride Rocker profile (20% tip and tail rocker for soft snow floatation and shock absorption and 80% camber underfoot for hard snow carvability) means you're able to plow through soft snow conditions, crud, and mushy snow with ease. Made to handle all-mountain terrain, the Collective serves as your fast-and-furious ski in varying soft snow conditions. The Collective features Sandwich Cap construction which is a wood-core laminate layup with shortened vertical sidewalls and a cap that wraps just over the top edges of the sidewalls. As a result, you have a ski that's exceptionally durable, that provides solid edge grip, and that has a touch of forgiveness. To further ensure that the Collective can take a beating, Head equipped the Collective with TuffWalls technology (impact-resistant ABS sidewalls) to maintain responsiveness and ensure durability. Built with Head's TTS (Tip and Tail Stabilizer System), this distinctive exoskeletal structure in the tip and tail has raised ribs to prevent twisting and to allow the thickness of the ski to be reduced at the extremities (reduced extremity thickness equals reduced swing weight). An ISS (Independent Suspension System) is also incorporated into the tip, tail, and underfoot structure to dampen vibrations and reduce the annoying tip flap for a super smooth ride during low- to high-speed turns The Diecut UHM C supplies a durable workhorse base material that you can rely on for seasons of skiing abuse. Ideal for those who love to charge into deep powder bowls, lay fast, fluid tracks down big mountains, or go powder-stash hunting in the trees, the Collective ensures a super smooth ride from tip to tail.
