Head SuperShape i.Magnum Review

by Annie Krumova on October 09, 2020


The rental centers of Traventuria have always aimed to provide comfort for skiers from all levels- from complete beginners to very advanced. The model we are presenting today is a number one choice for many experts- HEAD SuperShape i.Magnum! Choosing them, you won’t be let down! 

The following 4 models represent the Supershape series: i.Race, i.Magnum, i.Rally and i.Titan. To see which SuperShape models we have availablle for sales, please visit the following link: https://traventuriasports.com/ 

Each of these skis utilizes the same technologies and ideas, but are different in their sidecut and profile. When it comes to pointing the differences, you will probably first see the waist width, which ranges from 68mm for the i.Race to 80mm for the i.Titan. The other notable difference is the size of the ski’s rocker, which is biggest on the i.Titan, making for easier turns when the snow is choppy. The i.Magnum sits at the middle of the charts, slightly more race oriented than the i.Rally and i.Titan, but more forgiving than the i.Race. This makes it very suitable for a wide range of conditions, but it shines best on groomed slopes.




The HEAD Supershape i.Magnum has a 71-73mm waist, depending on your ski length and a short turn radius. The skis are not as nimble as a pro slalom ski, but still capable of transitioning quickly from one turn to the next. 

HEAD i.Magnum is not the best choice if you tend to ski on the not-fresh maintainted downhill or when the weather is too warm, but it will impress you at the well groomed slopes.

Technologies & Construction 

KERS Technology works like a turbo charger that provides additional power and acceleration by stiffening the tail of the ski in outturns. The ffect: a boost, catapulting the ider into the next turn. Just like when Formula 1 pilots push a button for that extra notch of Speed. HEAD KERS Technology is an electronic, fully automatic and integrated system.

GrapheneA Nobel prize winning material. It's the strongest, lightest & thinnest material known to mankind. Lighter than wood & metal, yet harder than diamond & steel. As HEAD claim on their website “allowing for a ski with a truly harmonized flex distribution, easier engagement and quicker edge-to-edge changes”.

ERA 3.0 S – HEAD uses this special “rocker” profile for many of their performance skis. This means that when looking at the ski from the side, the nose has an earlier rise than normal skis. This allows for easier turn initiation and a more forgiving ski. It also makes the turn radius more progressive, so the harder you press on your skis, the quicker your turn will be.

Test on snow 

The first impression you get is of a solid ski, that’s not too demanding to ride but is still stable at speed on various terrain. It’s best suited for intermediate and advanced skiers, but not so much for beginners or extreme experts that might want to go for something more high-performance oriented, rather than all-around piste oriented.

With the i.Magnum you won’t experience any struggle while making turns. Beginners may feel better with a lower class of skis, as HEAD i.Magnum is designed to give you the most of HEAD’s top performance piste series. But more capable skiers will definitely feel the difference between these skis and any other normal pair of skis. The i.Magnum is best for carving at medium speeds and you can really “dance” around with them. If you want to go at ludacris speeds, something with a longer turn radius will be a better fit, but for quick carving turns down the mountain, the 13-ish meters turn radius is well balanced. The i.Magnum also skis very well in mixed conditions when the slopes aren’t perfect. The wide shovel helps the ski plow through choppy snow and adds floatation when there’s some fresh snow in the mountain.

All in all, HEAD has managed to make a great all-around performance ski with the i.Magnum, utilizing some of their best technology. Definetеly a ski to consider when on the market for a new pair on https://traventuriasports.com/
