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



The JOY line made HEADlines last season with its use of Graphene—a material stronger than steel and as thin as an atom. “Super light but stiff ski,” observes Muecke about the Great JOY. Testers gave the 98-mm-waisted model high scores for float, average for versatility and playfulness. Along with Graphene, the core includes Koroyd, carbon and wood within a sandwich cap construction. The Great JOY’s rocker profile is part of Head’s ERA 3.0, or rocker architecture that includes tip rocker, a progressive radius for better edge grip and Intellifibers for tip stabilization.
