in the early '60s, Head came out with the first pair of metal skis. What a breakthrough!
They were winning international races, skiers of all abilities were begging to
get on those metal boards and rip. Well we've seen fiberglass, Kevlar, metal,
wood, foam - you name it and Head is still producing some great skis. Here's preview
of what our Rippin' Riders will be testing. Stay tuned!
