Testers' Ratings

The Head Super Joy, the ski dedicated to the women's world, has been renewed for the 2019–2020 season with a Karuba wood and graphene construction. It confirms it's one of the ideal skis in women's Allround Tourism. Among the highlights of this ski is its lightness, as Elena Re confirms. It is very easy to enter turns and manage throughout the curve, adds coach Laura Jardi, who defines it as "super intuitive and manoeuvrable; although it's short, it grips well [and is] pleasant". The new Head Super Joy is therefore the ideal ski for women who want a ski that is easy to use and extremely manoeuvrable: "you don't even feel it underfoot". On the other hand, it is not intended for skiers beyond Class 3. If you're looking for higher performance, you'll have to check out the Racecarver unisex proposals. Isabel Anghilante doesn't recommend it because she finds it "inconsistent and it has too much vibration at medium and high speeds"; this flaw was also highlighted by other reviewers. The Head Super Joy is a good intermediate ski for women who want to improve their technique and who don't like speed too much, so it's a ski for sliding all day without getting tired.
