Strenghts:
Cruel in the piste, quite ok even in a little run-up. Have also piled with them and it works. Supplement - this is probably the funniest piste and forest-next-to-piste ski that I drove. So sickly good kick and drive in the beds both in long and short turn.

Weaknesses:
A little boring in the park (but it does come along with the purchase with this ski)

Summary:
Ice grip = sick good. you really feel when the steel edge sucks in the substrate. Best piste and front side of the ski I ever went on. The G-force when setting a perfect turn and pushing creates a great smile across the whole facet. Have tested both 177 and 170 cm in length and despite my length so the wheat cat unless the short ski is the most fun. But it is on the margin.

Model year: 2018
Riding style: Most piste and forest. 20% park but unfortunately I suck in the mare
Length on the ski: 177 cm
Riders weight: 72 kg
Riders length: 188 cm

Strenghts:
Stable and reliable

Weaknesses:
A bit clumsy in harder pistes

Summary:
Have tested 6-7 different teams in the past 2 years and have come to the conclusion that Head Supershape Titan fits my ride best. A radius, flex and waist that make the ski versatile and reliable. I dare put myself in deep carv regardless of the surface and know where I have my layers.
Can feel that they may become a bit clumsy in harder pistes, but nothing that disturbs me so much. Make sure they are sharp on the edges only;)

Strenghts:
Feels amazingly compassionate and well-behaved. Easy to drive and respond to the driver's signals without surprise. Very fast-paced as long as you stay in the drop bar and swallows roughness in a very good way. Excellent both in hard and soft piste. Just feel very "safe".

Weaknesses:
Pretty soft which is felt when pushing it a bit harder, not particularly variable in the turn, simply a little bland ...

Summary:
A cruel pistol cruiser for anyone who wants a safe and safe ride. Easy to drive in all directions but easy to understand. The tested skate is 177 cm.

Model year: 2012
Riding style: Unskilled but safe. Ski-Powder-Skare-Whatever
Riders weight: 92 kg
Riders length: 186 cm

Strenghts:
Very still carving ski in the piste, also works offpiste due to the width and quite soft forward. Pretty allround, therefore. One of the best pistachios I tested!

Weaknesses:
Titan is the widest Supershape model, the width has the pros and cons: The disadvantage is that it's a bit "slower" from edge to edge than a narrower slice, and even slower at the cord, so nothing for a person who does not master carving technology.

Summary:
Bought a pair of 170 cm head Titan recently and could finally test them in Åre during a bit of different conditions this weekend. The snow was quite hard in the slopes after a long period of plus degrees, but it has reached 10-15 cm of snow, which meant that the slopes were the most in perfect condition - but the hard snow is coming here and there and puts the skis on trial. In the afternoon far down the low zone, it became classic spring snow, and there they seemed a little worse.

I am used to skiers, with the past as a competitor (before the carving time can be said). Not so much heavier anymore, so it's a challenge to put these skis on edge when it's a little steeper and try to avoid the cable (the skis are definitely not the limit, but my legs are not pallets sometimes)

I prefer otherwise shorter (163-165) slalom skiing, which usually works best in pist otherwise, Titan I bought to get a more possible allround ski, and that's right: A real pistachio of the steady variety but able to function even in little "offpist ", but not top rated there, but more flow. So like to carve, and these skis can be trusted really - put them on the edge and just hang out! I think I'm probably (but not extreme) with the Völkl Tigershark 10ft, which I also like sharply, and these give a similar "safe" carving, as the train goes on hard ground if you can. Length 170 has a radius of 13.5, so it turns well, but longer turns, they work well, too.

When it became really snowy and raining they were not very good instead, they are not dreaming - I think the width makes them a little slower than a slider with a narrower waist. Possibly the rather hard back end is a disadvantage when there is soft snow as well. I would not recommend these skis to a skipper who does not have a carving technique, they buy one because you want to take carcarians in the first place!

The skid is quite soft in the front, I think it's only an advantage for the vast majority - it's still a real potent ski. One thing that may be worth pointing out is that I bought 170 cm, and just the length can affect my experience of being sluggish in a cord. I might have chosen a shorter model, but I was looking for the flow offpiste too - so it was a compromise with the length.

I tested a bit to go in the woods too (15-20 cm loose snow) and it went well considering what it's for the ski-type.

One comment only: KERS technology is difficult to take seriously, I think the ride is based solely on the ski's basic design (and it seems solid for the supershape series). Over the years, you have experienced so much marketing trix that has come and disappeared. I suppose in a couple of years, Head does not boast with KERS anymore, then there is something else "revolutionary" that applies. But the ski manufacturers have to find something new all the time, it's marketing - and it probably works! And of course it is totally impossible to determine if KERS has anything to do with the ski's characteristics, then you would need an identical ski with and without KERS and then compare them. My guess is that you could not feel the slightest difference in a blind test. But - if you "think " at KERS, it is also worth something (placebo effect, type). But I do not think that a "chip" in the ski can change the ride so much that a skier can feel it. The chip is visible behind the backbone, it looks high-tech .... maybe worth it? Chip-trimmed ski? Good is it anyway!

Strenghts:
Easy to drive cutting turn with, even if it does not go so fast. Overall, easy skis. Beautiful skis in softer snow, ex gun noise in plus degrees.

Weaknesses:
Isgreppet. Drops grip in 9 turn.

Summary:
I went skiing this couple of days in Säfsen in March 2012. Some plus degrees melted the snow in the afternoon, minus degrees froze the snowy snow into ice during the night. In the morning these skis were not fun to ride on. They are not sufficiently twisted to hold the grip. In the afternoon, when people had settled a little loose and the snow had softened, they were really goa to go on. Then I could stand quite well in red-black slopes. The skis go well even in lower runs, carving in green slopes, for example. They work well to drive both longer and a bit shorter turn on, not huge cards of course.

I have been skiing alpine for 36 years, since I was 6, riding in all slopes and conditions, but feeling the best on a cold night's nest in large turns at high speed.

Strenghts:
Ice grip, KERS chip, Design

Weaknesses:
Getting nervous if they drive calmly (but who wants to drive with such skis quietly?)

Summary:
Fits all conditions. Test drive in the Sälen on a really icy surface. When everyone around me was kidding around, I could easily go out quickly. Phenomenal ice grips, as well as their new KERS technology, pushing a punch out of the turn, feels really good to stand on. Just suits you who drive aggressively and on edge.

Strenghts:
In the description, it is very fast while you "own the ski" in order to be determined in the turn, if it is, it will be a great experience.

If you can not go skiing, do not buy it.

Weaknesses:
The weakness of the skier sits in the yard, strong legs are a must ocm you will get the max with this pistol drinker.

Summary:
Have gone on many skis, titan is the best.
