Head Absolut Joy Skis + Joy 9 Bindings - Women's 2015

Head Shop all Head
Be on the forefront of ski technology with the Head Absolut Joy Skis + Joy 9 Bindings. Head's engineers have outdone themselves by integrating the all new LIBRA: GRAPHENE™ technology into their women's ski line. GRAPHENE™ is the thinnest, lightest, and strongest material on the planet - stronger than diamond and 300 times stronger than steel, all in the thickness of one atom. However strong, the Power Sidewall Jacket allows for soft longitudinal flex for a forgiving ride that can take you all around the mountain. Hop on these skis quick before they float away, they're that light!
Rocker Type
Allride Rocker - Rocker that is equally at home on bulletproof snow as it is on powder. This profile uses early rise in the tip with regular camber throughout the rest of the ski. 20% rocker - 80% camber.
Women's Camber - A lower profile for easy turn completion and truly epic performance. A smoother flex curve and less hooking.
Progressive Radius - For tremendous turning. Regular rocker makes skiers place their ski further on edge to have it touch from tip-to-tail. With progressive radius, up to 50 % less angulation is needed to enjoy full edge contact. More edge on the snow = more edge grip.
ERA 3.0 - A masterful blend of three independently important technologies to make the ultimate allcountry skis. ROCKER + RADIUS + REBOUND = ROCKER DONE RIGHT
Superlite Composite Core - To make construction even lighter, material from the heart has been replaced by a lighter material and a layer of GRAPHINE™ has been inserted to not only insure the performance is unchanged but actually increased, as the overall thickness of the core is reduced, making it a composite that is easy and forgiving, but always precise.
LIBRA: GRAPHENE™ - An incomparably light and unbelievably strong material. Layers of GRAPHENE™, only a single atom thick, combine to make skis that flex and react intuitively to even the smallest inputs. When mixed with other lightweight materials like Koroyd and carbon, GRAPHENE™ enables weight savings of up to 350 grams.
Power Sidewall Jacket - A synthetic injected core supported with ABS sidewalls. This lightweight construction allows for a soft longitudinal flex coupled with a super responsive torsional flex, thanks to the sidewall jacket.
Highly Transparent UHM Base - A high-density, determinedly durable base that allows gorgeous graphic details to shine through. The perfect combination of fashion and function.
Additional Features
Intellirise Rebound - For targeted stability. We moved our legendary piezoelectric Intellifibers to the tip of the ski. The nasty tip vibrations found on regular rockers are not found here. These skis are too smart for that.
SuperLiteRail Plates - Has a wide contact interface on the ski-- 30% wider than the LiteRail. In combination with the integrated Freeflex-Function the SLR base guarantees constant force distribution which leads to flawless control and performance without affecting the natural ski flex.
Included Bindings
Bindings Do Not Come Mounted to Skis - Always have a certified binding technician mount and adjust your bindings.
Includes Joy 9 Bindings - Bindings must be mounted and adjusted prior to use.


  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Carving
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    For those that like the classic feeling of laying a ski over on edge and arcing a perfect turn, carving skis are what you want. These skis have narrower waists and shorter turn radii for edge to edge quickness and responsive turn initiation and exit on groomed runs and hard pack. The beginner-intermediate skis in this category are designed to make learning how to turn as easy as going from pizza to French fries.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Turning Radius: Short
  • Core/Laminates: Composite
  • Tail Type: Flat
    This is your traditional tail, designed to have edge contact all the way through the tail, and only designed for skiing forward. This is also preferred for alpine touring, as you can stick the tails of your skis in the snow.
