Make a ski too heavy and your legs will be done by lunch time; make a ski too light and you're going to have a hard time skiing anything but the most ideal snow conditions. When Head set out to design its Women's Total Joy Ski, the company wanted to make a ski that was light, powerful, and, most importantly, fun to ski. So what did Head do? Well, it put heads together and came up with a whole new way to build a ski in order to keep it light, powerful, and a Total Joy to ski.
What Head came up with was a special ingredient called graphene. Like sugar, graphene just makes everything a whole lot sweeter. Ultra thin, lightweight, and stronger than diamonds (yeah, that's right), graphene gives the Total Joy a stiff and stable feel, without adding a bunch of weight to the ski. But Head took it a step further and threw in layers of carbon, then used a lightweight Koroyd synthetic core to keep the ski light, nimble, and easy to ski. With an 85mm waist, the Total Joy is a frontside ski that will rip everything from East Coast ice to West Coast groomers with ease. A women-specific profile consists of an early rise tip to make turn initiation a breeze, while a toned-down camber profile makes the ski forgiving, yet solid once laid on edge.
