2012 Review: Heads only womens ski to feature metal in the womens lineup this year. The Mya No. 6 PR Pro is the ultimate one ski quiver for the expert level lady skier. Her curves boast a sidecut that allows for a perfect 50 percent on piste / 50 percent off piste ratio. If your the type of skier who likes to ski a fast and aggressive line down the hardpack mixed with the occasional trip through the trees, bumps and deeper snow then this is the ski for you. Ideal for the expert level East Coast lady. This ski comes fully loaded with Head Technology. Features Heads FLR Flowride Rocker Technology. This technology allows you to initiate your turn easier when laying down the arcs on the groomers and creates float when the tip is engaged with deeper snow conditions. BMW Designs (Yes BMW the car company) worked with Head to create this fantastic top sheet. Intelligence fibers that run along the length of the ski harden to dampen the ski at higher speeds to create a more stable ride. When you grab the reigns and slow these skis down the intelligence fibers detect the lower frequency vibrations softening the core of the ski allowing you to still carve with precision and ease at slower speeds.

Many don't realize that Head is one of the few major US born ski manufacturers. Started by aeronautical engineer Howard Head in 1950, the brand quickly became popular domestically and many skiers from the 1960's and 70's remember their beloved Head skis. What stands out most about Head skis is the technology in each ski. Aircoat cores, LiquidMetal energy recovery, and Intelligence electronic ski management are all technologies that Head has pioneered in alpine skis. As a sidenote, you guessed it, Head skis is the same company that produces tennis rackets as well as Penn tennis balls.
