The V-Shape V4 from Head is a great ski for the athletic beginner to solid intermediate skier who wants a lightweight and agile ski. Head's new LYT Tech Construction keeps the ski remarkably lightweight without any sacrifices to performance. A V-Shape sidecut offers a fantastic blend of forgiveness and control without being too demanding for someone still working on their skills. A Power Sidewall Jacket Construction works with a composite core that allows for skidding and sliding of turns or pushing out a snowplow until you are ready to carve parallel turns. Head's ERA 3.0 uses the perfect combination of turning radius, rebound and rocker to deliver optimum performance to the skill level to who that ski is designed for. If you are looking to invest in gear and stop waiting in pesky rental shop lines, the Head V-Shape V4 is the perfect ski for you.
