The 2022 Head World Cup Rebels e-SL FIS race ski is Head's race stock slalom race ski for this season. For 2022, the Head FIS SL ski has a slightly wider tail across all sizes, giving athletes more acceleration out of the turn. Also new for 2022 is a re-designed tip protector that will better absorb impact from slalom gates. The 2022 Head FIS SL ski also comes with Head's new Energy Management Circuit (EMS). This FIS slalom ski comes in three sizes: 156cm, 158cm, and 165cm.
Who is this ski made for?
This ski is designed for high-level FIS, USSA, or Master's athletes. All sizes of this ski are both FIS and USSA legal. This ski can also be a great one for expert skiers looking for a tight-turning, highly responsive slalom ski on which to rip groomers. Looking for a softer, shorter slalom ski?
