Head Collective 105 Skis 2014

Head
Shop all Head
Those sick inlays on the tip and tail aren't just for show; they are part of Head's innovative Tip and Tail Stabilizer System (TTS). The TTS reduces the swing weight of the skis while also adding torsional strength to reduce the dreaded tip and tail chatter that occurs while charging on variable snow conditions. Paired with an ISS-Independent Suspension System in the tip, tail, and underfoot, and AllRide tip rocker, TTS makes the Collective series incredibly responsive and stable on all snow conditions. With super durable TuffWall sidewalls and a Sandwich Cap construction, the Head Collective 105 Skis offer bomber performance anywhere you decide to take them.
Rocker Type
AllRide Rocker - Rocker that is equally at home on bulletproof snow as it is in powder. This profile uses early rise in the tip with regular camber throughout the rest of the ski. 20% rocker / 80% camber.
Laminates
Sandwich Cap Construction - Head takes the basic framework from its World Cup sandwich and adds a cap that just wraps over the top edge of the sidewall to make the ski more suitable for all mountain skiing. Bomber construction with a rounded top edge makes for one incredible all-mountain ski.
ISS (Independent Suspension System) - Elastomeric vibration killers located in the tip, tail and underfoot. The elastomers quiet the vibrations that are commonly associated with rockered skis. Underfoot, the vibrations are dampened to provide the skier with a smooth ride.
TTS (Tip and Tail Stabilizer System) - TTS is a stabilizing exoskeleton which dampens the vibrations normally felt from rockered tips and tails, and also reduces overall swing weight and creates a ski with a playful yet high level of performance. The system is comprised of elastomeric inlay for vibration control as well as a glass fibre exoskeleton for stability and torsional strength. This combination not only reduces vibrations but creates better pressure distributon upon entry and exit of a turn by minimizing lateral flex of the ski.
Sidewalls
TuffWalls - Impact resistant ABS sidewalls. Tuffwalls are designed to take a beating while enabling solid edgehold.
Base
Diecut UHM C Structured Base - The same high quality material used in Head's world-leading race skis is used here. A structured running base for all conditions, this durable workhorse base material has die cut graphics for added flair.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring, Big Mountain
    All-Mountain
    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.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    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: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
