Description

This Monster just might unleash your inner beast.

The Head Monster i.M 82 Alpine Ski gives expert and advanced skiers a mean tool for splitting time between powder and the piste. The Monster i.M 82 employs Liquidmetal technology to retain rebound and maintain consistent flex no matter how many seasons you ski on it, and with an 82mm waist, it rails groomers without forgetting how to dance in the deep. Intellifibers placed in front of the binding actually increase rigidity throughout the ski as more force and stress is placed upon it. This versatility provides a solid, powerful ride on hard pack without getting twitchy in soft conditions. A raised tail profile allows shorter turns for bumps and steeps, and prevents hooking when submerged in fluff.

I am 6'2" and 200lbs and was wondering if anyone had any input on whether I would go with the 172cm or the 177cm of the Head Monster 82 ski? I usually ski a 178cm and but have had friends tell me that I would enjoy the shorter ski. I am intermediate/advanced but ski anything on the mountain and want to learn how to ski bumps a lot better.

Awesome

I am the proud owner of a pair of 177s. Coming from too short K2 Escapes, these were a massive step up...and they're unbelievable. As I've been telling everyone since my first run on these beauties, it felt like I went from a good skier to a great skier as soon as I clicked in. They excel in every condition I've tested (ice, slightly less ice - gotta love New England, groomers, crud), and given the craptacularity of my old skis, I'm expecting to love the performance in deep powder as well (despite the midfat 82 mm waist). In the beat-up glades these beauties turned on a dime and saved my ass from more than one run-in with a tree. Construction appears to be rock solid. The Aztec-esque designs on the topsheets are really cool without being gaudy.

One important note is that you gotta be on top of these Monsters at all times. If you get lazy for a minute or two, they'll throw you for a ride.

If you're up to the challenge of taming these beasts, they'll be with you forever.

Beasts!!!

Took a new pair of these in 172's with Marker Jesters out to Sugar Mtn in North Carolina. I'm 5'11" 190lbs. These skis rip! In all terrain I could find, crud, powder , ice, hardpack, they were fast and stable. Did I say fast? Seriously, there is no place for hesitation on these skis. If you're at all bashful or tired and find yourself in the backseat, these skis will lay you down. That was probably my only downside, I ended my day earlier, than I probably would on something more forgiving. I was coming off an old pair of Volant Epic 185's walking into these. What an upgrade.

Hiya, I have a pair of these babies and love them loads! Am looking to get into ski touring and am wondering whether these would be appropriate or whether I should invest in another ski. Also would you know their weight is as I can't find the stat anywhere. Cheers td

Responded on

You can tour on any ski, provided they have touring bindings and skins cut to the appropriate size. However you will have a lot more fun if the skis are designed for touring, and therefore lightweight. 82 mm underfoot is also pretty skinny for a backcountry ski as well, since you'll mostly be skiing untracked. Check out Black Diamond's or G3s line of telemark/AT skis.
