Head Women's Wild One SW Skisw/ ONE LD 12 Bindings:
Developed exclusively for advanced and expert female skiers who want a balanced blend of 50% groomed and 50% untracked in their ski day, the Wild ONE ski is a highly versatile all-mountain performer with innovations to adapt to changing terrain and snow conditions. It has features a snappy sandwich construction with Intelligence Technology. That means that Head put these things called Intellifibers at 45-degree angles in front of the ski bindings, so those mechanical impulses created by bouncing around in hard snow turn into electrical energy that stiffens the Intellifibers. When the Intellifibers turn rigid, you feel more control with improved rebound and ski torsional stiffness. The cool thing is that Intellifibers only stiffen the Wild ONE exactly where you need the extra control on the mountain--and not all the way from the summit to the lodge. Another Head innovation is Liquidmetal technology. While just about every ski manufacturer now offers titanium in their high-end skis, Head's Liquidmetal has a molecular structure that returns power at a ratio of 1:1, resulting in an improved ski rebound and improved turn initiation with roughly 29% more power than energy-absorbing titanium. Ski magazines lauded Head's Liquidmetal component in past seasons for the consistent and predictable rebound, but one lesser-known benefit is that the Liquidmetal is actually liquid, so it doesn't break down like solid molecular ski components that wear out over several seasons of hard use. What that means is that you'll probably be skiing on these Wild ONEs long after everyone else has decided that their conventional all-mountain skis are flat and ready for the ski swap. This ski is paired with the integrated Head ONE LD 12 binding (the LD stands for Light Diagonal). The ONE LD 12 binding offers a binding DIN setting range of 3.5 to 12 and features female-specific components that are engineered with a specific strength-to-weight ratio for women's safety needs.
