The 2022 Head World Cup Rebels e-GS FIS giant slalom ski is the top-of-the-line race stock GS ski from Head. For 2022, the sidecut on the Head FIS GS race ski has been narrowed in the tip and widened in the tail. This gives the ski more thrust and energy out of the turn. Also for 2022 is Head's propritary Energy Management Circuit (EMC), which is meant to dampen vibrations during the turn and at high speeds.
Who is this ski made for?
This ski is designed for high-level FIS athletes or those needing a 30 meter FIS legal ski. This is a true World Cup race stock ski, and is built for highly aggressive racers. If you're looking for something that turns a bit easier, check out the 2022 Head Non FIS GS race ski.
