It makes you feel like a superhero.
Graphics could perhaps be better. Clutching at straws here...

Head's Supershape family has long been revered as a high performance piste range, putting their race heritage into a more approachable format while retaining precision and speed and giving confidence in spades. The Supershape Titan could be the perfect embodiment of this approach.

First impression; it's like skiing on rails. The edges bite into the snow and within seconds you're hitting personal-best speeds. 100mph would feel safe as houses. The edge hold is simply phenomenal in long and short turns and the oversized shovel nose guides you into everything as aggressively (or not) as you want. So far, so fast.

But beyond railing, the Supershape Titan has a lively agility in all types of turns that is super-responsive and gives very enthusiastic feedback. This allows lightning changes of direction (which will be useful at the speeds it will cajole you into) that make you feel like a superhero! Those changes of direction are helped by the skis predilection for effortlessly swinging itself beneath you; whether carving, pivoting or swinging like a pendulum, the level of control feels immense.

The high performance comes with a considerable price tag, but as it includes bindings it has to be seen as a bargain. This is the most fun I've had on piste in years.
