The circle of pow.
The circle of life's a lot like skiing big-mountain laps: you start slowly, but quickly pick up speed, and before you know it you have to slam on the brakes before you accidentally send that 100-foot drop right in front of you and land on your head. OK, maybe the analogy doesn't work, but the Head Cyclic 115 Ski will still take you from the top to the big cliff to the bottom to the top to the big cliff to the bottom whether you're spinning lift laps or enjoying your first big-mountain heli trip. The second-fattest board in Head's big mountain line, it features the same weight-saving but powerful hybrid sandwich-cap construction and ABS Tuffwall sidewalls, so you can punch the throttle down big lines without losing the quickness required to handle tight trees and techy terrain. Head's TNT Rocker provides a good section of camber underfoot for bomber edge hold when you need it, and there's plenty of rocker in the tip and tail to make short work of powder and keep the Cyclic nimble and pivoty when you need it to be.
Of course, the most obvious design feature is the Tip and Tail Stabilizer System, a vibration-killing overlay in the tips and tails that gives you a smooth, consistent ride even when you're mobbing down choppy terrain. They give the Cyclic a space-age look, for sure, but you'll be sold when you feel the dampness and predictability they provide. If you still want more, Head also included dampening Independent Suspension System inlays in the tip, tail, and underfoot sections of the ski, so you'll be able to make short work of the harshest terrain you can find. Throw in a light and lively wood core and speedy UHM C base, and the Cyclic will keep your shredding on point from the first lap of the season until the last.

Getting A Second Pair This Year
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
2+ Seasons on my original pair, only the graphics have changed since its inception, nothing to change when it's near perfect.
At 6'2", the 191 is an easy, go-for-it feel with no surprises. One surprise, how easy it is to ski in all conditions.
My best ski bud is 5'9" and skis the 181.
I'm in for my second pair.
Mounting Point Off
Head made a little mistake on the recommended mounting point of this ski. Easily corrected by taking a look at the picture below. If you do decide to purchase these skis myself or another Gearhead will be following up with you to explain how to get the right mount point.
