2015/2016 Head Power Instinct Ti Pro ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its men’s Frontside Category.

“The ski performs well in all conditions—it loves hard snow and plows through powder piles with ease,” says Witman of the Power Instinct Ti Pro. “It’s slow to initiate but trustworthy once you get it on edge.” The 82-mm-waisted titanium-enhanced new model also combines Graphene—a material Head uses in tennis rackets for its high strength-to-weight ratio. The ski has a World Cup sandwich cap construction plus a combination of design elements Head calls ERA 3.0, which features tip rocker, a progressive radius, vibration-reducing Intelligence Stabilizers and a system binding. The Power Instinct Ti Pro received its highest scores for stability, lower for playfulness. “This ski likes speed and is solid sending it,” says Ertl.
