If you're going to be sending big cliffs and skiing chest-deep snow at face-melting speeds, you'd better have a tool that's as burly as you are. Enter the Head Turbine 125 Ski. It might look like the bastard offspring of a big-mountain ski and a rubber spatula, but it skis like a purebred charger, thanks in part to the space-age tech in the tip and tail. To reduce the vibration that can be an issue with rockered skis, Head supplied the Turbine with TTS, a tip and tail stabilizing system consisting of elastomeric stabilizing inlays and a glass fiber exoskeleton that combine to dampen vibration, lighten swing weight, and increase torsional stiffness, creating a ski that's as stable and powerful as a Clydesdale while being quick as a snowshoe hare. Even though it's designed for big drops and deep days, the Turbine can hold its own in variable conditions, thanks to its torsional stiffness and a TNT rocker profile that features 60% camber underfoot to bite into hardpack and 20% tip and tail rocker to float over chop and crud. It won't get squirrely, either, thanks to an Independent Suspension System that employs elastomeric inlays underfoot, as well as those in the tip and tail, to reduce chatter and provide a smooth ride. And when you hit the inevitable rock, never fear, because the Turbine features super-durable sandwich cap construction, which combines the toughness and strength of sandwich construction with the lightweight simplicity of a cap overlay, and burly ABS Tuffwall sidewalls that are designed to take a beating without dulling or blowing out. Throw in tough and fast UHM C bases with diecut graphics, and you've got a ski that might be tougher than you.
