Head Women's Great One SW Skis w/ ONE LD 12 Bindings:
Created for advanced skiers who like to go fast and carve through varied snow conditions, the Women's Great ONE is one of the most versatile all-terrain skis you can take to the mountains this season. It 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 Great 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 Great ONEs long after everyone else has decided that their conventional all-mountain skis are flat and well… not so great. That's an investment that makes plenty of sense no matter where you like to ski down the mountain. This version of the Great One SW includes Head's integrated ONE LD 12 women's binding. The ONE LD 12 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.
