2020 Head Super Shape I.Rally Skis with Bindings
For pure on-trail carving enjoyment and performance, it's hard to go wrong with the 2020 Head Supershape I.Rally. This is a system that will set you up for carving success. Thanks to Head's non-stop commitment to technology-infused skis, the Supershape I.Rally is a shining example of a strong ski that loves to be on edge. They have the build and the shape to be the perfect front-side setup for advanced and expert skiers. Starting with the shape, the 76 mm waist is narrow enough to hold a legitimate edge on ice, while not being too skinny that it makes for a difficult balance point. It's all about balance, so it makes sense that the ski should have enough of a platform to comfortably stand on, while not being too wide that it jeopardizes torsional stiffness and edge grip. The 135 mm tip and the 114 mm tail equate to a 13.7-meter turn radius at the 170 cm length. This is pretty short, but all that really means is that the skis love to rip. The initiation, engagement, and release are all super-precise, and the speed rocker profile is on the friendly side, but still very quick to start a turn. Be sure to be balanced and centered, as the Graphene in the ski does a great job at dispersing the weight evenly throughout the ski, so it makes the whole system function as a cohesive unit that loves to rail turns. The 2020 Head Supershape I.Rally skis with bindings are an ideal setup for front-side carvers who love to be on edge.

I already have Head iRally skis and love them. I'm 5 7 and ride 163 length. They work well in most conditions and can really be pushed. I am increasingly riding off piste and noted most off piste skis have a similar front and tail width to the iRally, but are wider underfoot.
I like the turning radius and flex these skis have, so wondering what you'd recommend as a good second ski to support more off piste adventures? So far the iRally had been good, but thinking of a ski that can provide more confidence. Also, as I like the iRally, should I stay in the Head family?
Generally skiers who like the feel/performance of one ski in a line will like others as well. The Kore series from head starts at 93 mm underfoot and goes up to 116. I think the 99 is a good second option to complement the Rally. Have fun!
