MYA stands for "Maximize Your Ability," and HEAD's new ERA 3.0 technology is designed to deliver. All six MYA skis share the new trilogy of technology that combines rocker, radius and rebound. HEAD blends tip rocker and vibration-absorbing Intellifibers in the tip with a progressive radius for better edge contact and soft snow performance. Koehn said it feels "stable and damp." The MYA 8 has a light wood core built with denser wood over the edges for direct energy transfer. "It can zoom through the blues on your way to the steeps," said Bremner. "It's great for the frontside and a little bit of exploring."
