The all new Head World Cup Rebels e-SL Tweener race ski is a new slalom ski from Head for the 2021 season. This highly-anticipated ski fills a gap between Head's junior slalom race ski and adult FIS slalom ski. This tweener model features the construction and race plate of the FIS slalom ski, but is shorter and softer, providing another option for younger, developing athletes.
Who is this ski made for?
This ski is designed for athletes transitioning from a junior ski but who are not ready for the full-fledged FIS slalom ski. While this ski is legal for USSA competition for athletes of all ages, it does not meet the requirements for FIS competition. If you need a FIS-legal ski, check out Head's 2021 FIS SL race ski.

Manufacturer Factory Setup:
Head race skis do not come from the manufacturer fully prepared for racing. These skis come from the factory with inconsistent base and side edge angles; with sidewall that needs to be removed; and without any waxing treatment.
