The 2021 Head World Cup Rebels i.SG RP WCR is Head's junior Super-G race ski. This ski is designed specifically for SG competition, with a lower tip profile, a longer radius, and lengths more appropriate for speed events. Super-G race skis are designed to go fast and turn just enough at high speeds to navigate a SG course. These skis are designed to go fast while still being controllable enough for younger athletes.
Who is this ski made for?
This ski is made for younger athletes looking for a SG race ski. In general, Super-G skis are 10-15cm longer than an athlete's GS ski. The 185cm / 30m version meets USSA requirements for U-19 and younger athletes. The 175cm / 27m version meets USSA requirements for U-14 athletes. Neither length meets requirements for FIS competition.
Radius & Dimensions:
175cm: 27 meter radius (93 / 65 / 82)
175cm: 30 meter radius (98 / 65 / 81)
Manufacturer Factory Setup:
