Description

Lives to ski fast down big faces.

As you size up the line you're about to conquer, you flip the snow off of the Head Cyclic 115 Ski tip and yell down to your partner: Dropping, in 3, 2, 1! Then you push off with your ski poles, make three sweeping turns onto a pillow line, and point it. Made for big-mountain freeride chargers who love to push their limits, the Cyclic 115 features a TNT rocker profile (40% rockered tip for superb floatation and 60% camber underfoot for solid edge grip) that allows you to ski fast and fluid down big faces.

This aggressive freeride ski features Sandwich Cap construction which has a wood-core laminate layup with shortened vertical sidewalls and a cap that wraps just over the top edges of the sidewalls. As a result, you have a ski that's exceptionally durable, that provides solid edge grip, and that has a touch of forgiveness. To further ensure that the Cyclic can take a beating, Head equipped it with TuffWalls technology (impact-resistant ABS sidewalls) to maintain responsiveness and ensure durability.

Built with Head's TTS (Tip and Tail Stabilizer System), this distinctive exoskeletal structure in the tip and tail has raised ribs to prevent twisting which also allows the thickness of the ski to be reduced at the extremities. Reduced extremity thickness means reduces swing weight. An ISS (Independent Suspension System) is also incorporated into the tip, tail, and underfoot structure to dampen vibrations and reduce the annoying "tip flap" for a super smooth ride during low- to high-speed turns. The Diecut UHM C supplies a durable workhorse base material that you can rely on for seasons of abuse.

i am 6'4'', 190lbs, 30 yrs old. have been skiing since a young age and am probably considered intermediate (blacks on east coast; blues and blacks in CO/UT/west coast). looking for something to ski all conditions, all parts of mountain. may try to ski more back-bowl stuff next year. would this ski be suitable, and if so, which length?

Responded on

Hi JG,

These would be a good ski for the types of conditions you are talking about getting into in general. I might depend on exactly where your skiing to narrow that down specifically for you for the best option for your needs, the snow type, terrain, stuff like that but in general these would be a good ski for a bit more exploration with terrain. If you went with this ski I would say the 181cm would be a good size to check out to give you good agility for your size, a more playful feel and good response in tighter spots. If your looking for a size that would be more stable at higher speeds you could size up from there. A couple others I would recommend checking out would be the Moment PB&J which would be a fairly similar to these, but a bit longer sidecut at a 23 meter in the 188cm to give you a bit longer turn profile but similar agility with the rocker profile. The Volkl Mantra would be another great one for you, rocker in the tip only to give you a more all mountain feel, but still great versatility for softer or more inconsistent snow types. Both options are slightly narrower underfoot compared to these which gives it better versatility for your style of skiing and the terrain it sounds like you would be getting into.

If you have any other questions on any of these feel free to use the live chat feature or give us a call and we can go over more specifics on these for you.

Wondering if y'all have any recommendations...

Wondering if y'all have any recommendations on where to mount this ski? I'll be on the 181, and running a g3 Onyx binding. Thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Bryn,
I had emailed Head about the Cyclic mounting point and here is what I got back: If you look at the sidewall of the ski where the boot would sit, you will see the ski center mark and then 1/2cm tick marks behind that. 6 tick marks back or 3cm, you will see the tick mark is bold with an ?R? above it. This is the recommended mounting position for this ski. 3cm back from center. This mounting position is ideal if you like a more modern style of skiing, as in you like a real surfy, smearing type ski or like to ski switch. If you ski a little more old-school, drive the ski from tip to tail, and want a bit more tip in front of you I recommend mounting the ski an additional 1cm back or two additional tick marks.
I demoed these again to figure out where mount mine but their demo bindings were mounted in such a way that I could go from the very last mark (8 cm back of center) to 4 marks in front of that (6 cm back of center). The ski performed great in both locations. All the way back was better for me for heavy crappy snow and the 6 cm back was easier to initiate carves on groomers. I ended up 13 marks back from center and they are great. I don't ride switch or park so if you do either of those you might want to pull the bindings further forward.

So helpful! Exactly what I was wanting to know...Thanks!!!

What size is everybody using on these skis?...

Posted on

What size is everybody using on these skis? I am 5'11", 180 lbs and demoed the 181's. They were great in the 3" of leftover heavy powder but I wasn't able to test them out on a good deep powder day. Will the 181's be long enough for my size/weight and provide enough float on a deep day or do I need to go to a 191? Thanks!

Responded on

Null,
I don't have any experience on this ski so I asked the people below to try and give some feedback to you. Hopefully one of them will get on the site soon.

I'm 6'1" 178lbs, 42 years young and I would most likely choose the 181cm for myself, without seeing the ski in person I'm not 100% sure though. With the tip being 148mm wide and with a nice 113mm underfoot that should be plenty in the deep stuff in my opinion. But I will say this, if you are a very aggressive expert that charges big lines, wants the biggest platform to land on, the most float you can get, and are willing to give up some of the playful side of the ski then go 191cm. I spend quite a bit of time in moguls and the hill I ski the most doesn't have massive wide open bowls to just bomb through.

I would base your decision on where you ski, the amount of snow they usually get, is this your only ski, your ability level, and what part of skiing puts the biggest smile on your face.

Hopefully someone else replies soon, I didn't want to leave you hanging for any longer without any feedback. Good luck!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been skiing for over 25 years and have gone through a fair share of skis. Currently living in Big Sky, MT skiing over 100 days a year. I can without a doubt say the Cyclic is an entire new level of ski ! The most playful , responsive ski I have ever been on. These things rip on ANY condition ! Its like driving a Ferrari ! If you are a "True" Big Mountain skier do yourself a favor a get these you won't be disappointed ! And a big Thank You to Backcountry for offering these at a great price & super fast shipping!

I am 5'9'' , 170 and have the 181's , they seem to be the perfect ski for me, I do tend to ski on longer ski's. A quick review update, still love these skis my only complaint is the top sheets especially at the top of the inside edges seem to be taking a beating, previous to these I skied the infernos & had the same problem, other than that these are still the best skis I have ever owned !

Thanks for the additional information! How far back from the center reference line did you mount your bindings on these?

Believe! Its all true...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

In short, everything everyone else here has said. I was so excited to ski these, and the first day I did was a gnarly pow day at Vail. The skis surpassed my wildest dreams. As other reviewers have mentioned, I was inspired with a sense of invincibility in ALL conditions, pow, steep moguls, and groomers. The temperature was miserable and nearly visibility, but the skis were just so much fun I stayed out from first chair to last. There is some black magic in these because there is no way a ski this wide should be this playful and precise. Makes skiing like a pro feel easy. Had glorious float in the deep and just absolutely ripped from side to side on the groomers. I was also lucky enough to randomly end up riding the lift with the designer of these skis and had a great conversation with him, great guy! Whatever is in these skis, grab a pair before everybody else finds out.

My favorite...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

... skis for every kind of conditions: from deepest powder in BC to skiing tracked out comp lines!
Stiff enough underfoot and smooth enough tip and tail rocker to do all kind of fun stuff.
There was not one single day for me without having a blast on those amazing skis.

FUN

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have only skied the Cyclic a few times, and every time I had a lot of fun.
I found it had enough rocker to float around, butter about and play in soft snow but it was still sturdy enough to stomp lines.
Cant wait to get it into some proper pow!

THE BEST SKI I HAVE EVER USED !!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used this ski touring up at Whitewater on Sunday, second day of the year, it was the most the most responsive and playful ski I have ever skied on. They were easy to throw around, and great for skinning up steep hills. They are a great, light versatile ski. Can't wait to go again!

Too much fun

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have been riding the Cyclic since last march and I honestly could not be happier with the ski. Initially I spent some just getting used to it but I found that within no time I was able to adjust easily. The skis transfer from edge to edge with ease and enjoy high speeds even on groomers. In deeper snow they stay afloat and can handle everything I have thrown at them so far. They love pillows and love getting airborne. Great swing weight coupled with a solid ski allows them to do what ever is needed.

Raddest ski on the planet

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The Head cyclic 115, my number one choice from Head's already stacked line up of freeride skis. This ski will hold up against anything you throw at it. Whether your slaying big lines or crushing pillows in the Backcountry, or banging off laps at the resort this ski will do it all with ease!

My everyday ski..

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

The new Cyclic 115 is definitely my main choice from the Head line for everyday skiing on and off the resort. The versatility of this ski is really amazing. I love that I can be confident in a deep pow turn right into a sick carve on the groomers. You can't go wrong if you choose this ski in the morning for any condition that comes at you!

Pillow Lines in Canada

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I could not agree with Tyson more. I had the opportunity to skin and play on the Cyclic Skis for a week hut trip outside of Golden BC and I could not have asked for a more responsive play full ski. We skied everything from charging big lines to pillows and the skis were awesome! I have thrown away my other skis and use this ski exclusively from on mountain to skinning.

Play Time

When I go ski I wan to have as much fun as I can. When I first tried the Cyclic, "I was hooked on a feeling." A feeling of invincibility and joy. Every turn was not easy, but fun. I could slash, and carve at high speeds with a very stable confidence. Powder was a dream, as the perfect rocker profile made it so I barely had to lean back at all, so my legs did not get tired. I have had a few days on this ski since my first test, and I learn more about my skiing and how to play more an more every time. So fun.
