Head Snowboards 2011-2012

15 Aug, 2011

When it comes to building snowboards, Head is about people, innovative and high quality products. The passion from riding meets technology so that a product rides better. For technologies, Head uses a chip placed close to the front of the board that absorbs vibrations and within five-thousandths of a second stiffens the board and increased torsional softness. The Kers (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) captures energy from vibrations during edge to edge transfer and boosts it back to you. The Intellifibers are Plizer fibers in the board which ensure stability at all speeds.

Head completes the camber concept menu with camba, flamba, rocka and snake.  Camba is traditional construction with optimum edge to edge transfer. Flamba lays flush atop a level surface and distribute pressure on snow in a neutral way to create a catch free ride, stable and predictable.  The Rocka from Head is like a rocking chair rocker that automatically lifts the nose and the tail contact points of your board up and out of the way.  The Snake shape moves the camber to the tail of the board in a unique camber design that pushes the nose of the board towards the sky as soon as you strap in.
