Everyone knows how Head has ruled the World Cup Racing scene in recent years - their pro roster includes names like Bode, Ted, Didier, Lindsey and Maria. They don't come any faster. Truth is, though, if you were to get on a pair of their skis you'd be shocked by the aggressive edgehold and raw power these things generate. Enter the Head i.Supershape Titan, a race-derived carver that's just slightly detuned to make all mountain carving more manageable for normal athletes. With World Cup Sandwich construction, a full Rebel Camber, and the KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) built into the ski to propel you out of every turn, the i.Supershape Titan is as close as you'll want to come to a true race ski for everyday skiing. Paired with the burly FreeFlex Pro 14 Binding, this setup will have you laying down trenches all day long. The Head i.Supershape Titan + FreeFlex Pro 14 Bindings - don't trip on your way up to the podium!

Bindings do not come mounted to the skis. Always have a certified technician mount and adjust the bindings.
KERS Technology Piezoelectric fibers transform kinetic energy into electrical energy during the mid-phase of the turn and use it to stiffen the tail of the ski during the exit phase. The result is like a turbocharged burst of speed as you finish each turn. Watch out, these skis are smarter than you think!

Comments about Head i.Supershape Titan Skis + FreeFlex Pro 14 Wide 88 Bindings 2013:
The iTitan is, as proclaimed, an excellent carving machine! though that doesn't quite cover it, because it also does very well in bumps, powers through crud, and grips like hell on ice. It is a ski you can push very hard and trust that it will respond with precision and stability.
It's definitely one of the best on-piste skis I've skied (Rossignol, Solomon, Volkl, other Head models), but it's not a beginner's ski. It's heavy and precise and it needs to be driven. At the beginning, it caught me by surprise when I relaxed on it, but once I learned its behavior (and adjusted my skiing) I found it quite friendly.
The iTitan is not advertised as a powder ski, and indeed, it would be far from my first choice on a powder day, due to its weight and rigidity. The Head Rev 80, for example, which on piste approaches the Titan in more recreational/everyday use (ie not competition-style skiing)...the Rev 80 I found better in powder, probably due to its rockered design. (Surely, the 85 and 90 are even better, but I've not tried them.)
For a fast, stable, responsive on-piste ski, the Head iTitan is just fantastic! (imho) If that's your style of skiing, I can't imagine you'll be disappointed with this ski, even though it's typically a bit pricy.
Best Features: fantastic stability and performance at speed.
Least Good: weight.
