Be a little bit scared.
The Head Monster 108 Ski probably isn't for you if charging hard gives you goosebumps. If rallying top to bottom laps across hardpack, chunder, and pow makes you drool and cry tears of joy, though, it's worth a look. Head designed the Monster with just enough tip rocker to smooth out uneven snow and made sure that the long camber would provide bomber edge hold for all-conditions ripping. The World Cup Sandwich Cap construction combines the best part of cap construction—smooth flex and light weight—with the rugged durability and edge grip of a sandwich layup, while the titanal metal laminate gives the Monster enough backbone to straight line just about whatever you point it at.
If that's not enough, Head also hooked the ski up with a layer of Graphene, a thin layer of carbon fiber that's one of the strongest materials on the planet, to give the Monster tons of snap and torsional stiffness. Despite all the burliness, the wood core retains a good amount of pop and maneuverability, and Head's ERA 3.0 technology makes sure the rocker profile, turn radius, and energy rebound all are complementary, so the Monster feels balanced and smooth despite its aggressive nature.

Bonafide Rocket Ship
These are the stiffest, heaviest, smoothest, most stable skis on the market. Hands down. If you are a big, aggressive skier, and like to drive your shins into the front of your boots for maximum velocity, than these are the skis for you. Get ready for liftoff, because these things will send you to Mars. Getting back is the only problem..
The rocker and sidecut profiles are designed together, in a manner that allows these skis to get up on edge easier. Up to 50% easier, according to HEAD. What this means is that you don't HAVE TO be going 60 MPH in order to get these bad boys up onto their edges, unlike some other skis prized for their stability.
Still, these are for heavier, more aggressive skiers, that would rather rip their hair out than ski at a slow pace..
Where is the 191?
Hi Vail, Looks like we have had the 191's here in the past but are out of stock right now. I don't see that we have any on order at the moment, that is not to say that we won't be getting anymore in, but not any time real soon. If you'd like me to keep an eye out for the 191's for you just let me know and I'd be happy to. If you need anything else, please feel free to reach out to me directly. - Matthew Pizza - Expert Gearhead
