2015/2016 Head Total JOY ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Front Category.

“A fun, all-mountain ski that can rip short slalom turns,” says Kelly of the Head Total JOY. At 85 mm underfoot, the Total JOY scored its highest marks for carving, lowest for float. “It doesn’t float like some others in the category, but it can cut through crud or play in soft bumps,” says Muecke. Construction includes Graphene—borrowed from tennis racquet technology and known for being more than 200 times stronger than steel by weight—as well as Koroyd, carbon and wood. The Total JOY also comes with the SuperLiteRail plate and JOY binding and features tip rocker as part of Head’s ERA 3.0 or rocker architecture that includes a progressive radius for better edge grip and Intellifibers for tip vibration-absorption.
