The Head Strong Instinct Ti makes a great ski for the intermediate to advanced skier looking for a quick and nimble carving ski. Head's ERA 3.0 designs the rocker, turning radius, and rebound for the specific skill set to which that ski is designed for to deliver optimum control and performance. Graphene is a material that has been developed by Head to be very lightweight, but very strong. Graphene adds extra torsional strength to the Strong Instinct for extra responsiveness, while keeping a smooth longitudinal flex that gives you a light on your feet feeling in a ski that is capable of handling higher speeds. Allride Rocker engages you into turns quickly and efficiently. Head's Power Sidewall Ti Jacket has a synthetic injected core, Titanal, and Graphene that when combined together is loaded with energy and spring that is very enjoyable to ride for a wide range of skiers.
