The Joy range from Head is consistently performing strongly across the board and this model is no exception as we discovered during our 2014 test in Kuhtai, Austria. Packed full of high-end technology and built to last, this ski is aimed at recreational skiers but could easily handle at a more advanced level.

Overall Score

For any female skier looking to explore the whole mountain and start to get off the groomed slopes and into the powder, the Head Absolut Joy is a top contender.

The skis suggest a recreational skier who's looking to improve their on-piste technique would be best suited to these, but they have a lot more to offer a more advanced skier too - making them a perfect ski for a first time buy for anyone looking to seriously improve.

'Reliable and off-piste and have some serious poke for a recreational ski,' said one of our testers.

Containing a new Graphene material that's only one atom thick, yet 100 times stronger than steel - this keeps the skis super lightweight whilst retaining torsional stiffness throughout the turns.

The popular design rounds off what could turn out to be one of the top all-round skis of the 2014-15 winter ski season.
