Product Info

Reserved for the hardest charging skiers, the Head A-Star Skis epitomize what we like to call, 'burly' sticks. Complete with smooth gliding elastomeric vibration killers and a directionally rockered profile, the A-Star Skis rip the steeps, float the deeps, and boast the easy turn initiation of an early rise tip. Ruggedly constructed, stiff, and with a hefty turn radius, the Head A-Star Skis are built for the biggest sends. Think you can handle 'em?

Product Details

Rocker Type

TNT RockerTip and tail rocker combined with regular camber underfoot. This combination creates a surfy feel in powder while maintaining hard snow versatility.

Core

Wood Core

Laminates

Independent Suspension System (ISS)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.

Tip & Tail Stabilizer System (TTS)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 distribution upon entry and exit of a turn by minimizing lateral flex of the ski.

Sidewalls

Sandwich Cap ConstructionHead 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.

TuffwallsImpact resistant ABS sidewalls. Tuffwalls are designed to take a beating while enabling solid edgehold.

Base

Structured Diecut UHM C BaseThe 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.
