2021 Head Absolut Joy Womens Skis with Boots and Poles

The Head Absolut Joy women's ski package comes complete with skis, boots, bindings, and poles, and will help intermediate skiers get to the next level in the sport of skiing. There's a lot to like about these skis, and it all starts with the light weight composite core with the graphene layer. While the composite core is light, the graphene adds the stiffness to give these skis an upscale feeling and performance level. They're quick and easy turners, thanks to the 79 mm waist width as well as the 13.5-meter turn radius in the 163 cm length. You'll be making some sweet carves from top to bottom as a result, and the allride rocker profile will make the turns easy to get in and out of. They're fun and smooth, and an incredible value when paired with the SLR 9 Joy bindings, boots, and poles.


  • Sidecut: 129/79/109 mm at 163 cm length
  • Turn Radius: 13.5 meters at 163 cm length
  • Joy 9 SLR Bindings
  • Composite Core
  • Graphene
  • Sidewall construction
  • Ability Level: Intermediate Skiers


The Dalbello DS MX 65 boots are the perfect addition to this package. They have the right flex and width for this level of skiing, as well as a great combination of comfort and performance. Thanks to the 65-flex rating, you're going to be able to tackle some more advanced terrain, allowing intermediate skiers to make their way down the mountain with a great deal of confidence and comfort. With a 105 mm forefoot last, these boots are comfortable and will make for better circulation and warmer feet overall. You'll have a blast and learn to improve with these boots as a part of this package.


  • Flex: 65
  • Width: 105 mm
  • Four Buckle Design
  • Alpine Soles
  • Power Strap
  • Ability Level: Intermediate Skiers

Ski Poles:

Included in this package is a pair of ski poles. The exact pair we select will be based on the inventory we have available in your size. We'll do our best to color coordinate your poles with the rest of your package. No matter which pole we choose though, you can expect a high quality, lightweight aluminum ski pole that will work flawlessly with the rest of your package!

Hi, I am an intermediate level skiier, I can go down blues slowly and enjoy greens. I've skiied blacks before but prefer the blues and greens. I'm 115 pounds at 5'2. What would you recommend to me as a package? I'm looking for an all mountain set of skiis that will do the job on the groomers and the powder. Mostly skiing northern end of the east coast(Vermont/Pennsylvania). Any help would be appreciated!
Question by: Hayley on Jan 20, 2021, 9:00 PM
HI Hayley!
These Absolute Joy skis are a great option, and you get a nice boot with it as well! I'd look squarely at that package in the 148 cm length. A bit softer of a boot can be found in the K2 Anthem 75 package, and I'd take that in the 149, also a bit lower price. Have fun!

I'm looking at these skis in a 143cm. I'm an intermediate skier but I like shorter skis/quick turns, tree runs etc. I'm 5'6 120lbs but I've skied rentals in 130, 140, 142, and 150 and did NOT like the 150. Would the 143s be okay for me?
Question by: Holli on Feb 17, 2021, 9:32 AM
HI Holli!
Sure! Ski length is more about preference than it is right/wrong. I see no reason to not get the 143. Have fun!

I am 5'4 168 lbs. I am an advanced skier, but want to take it easier now that I am older. I am looking at the 2022 HEAD ABSOLUT JOY WOMEN'S SKIS W/ DALBELLO DS MX 65 BOOTS AND POLES with a size of 168. I haven't bought a new pair of skiis in 5 years. Can you please tell me if this is a good ski for me and what size poles I should buy. Also, if there are any other skiis you think would be good for me, please let me know.
Question by: Angela on Jan 14, 2022, 11:29 AM
Hi Angela,

Its a great package for an intermediate level skier. Looks like you are more of advanced skier. Pole size should be a 46."

Here is what I would recommend at your you upper intermediate/ advanced level, that is not too stiff easy to ski in all conditions in a 166cm length:

I am a 5’5” 170 pound female, shoe size 8.5 who hasn’t skied in 20 years. I left the slopes as an intermediate/ advanced skier and want to get back as a leisurely middle aged skier. Since the 153 is no longer available is it better to opt shorter or longer? Also if purchased could the bindings be adjusted for my weight and to my shoe size?
Question by: Ann on Feb 13, 2022, 9:37 AM
HI Ann!
I'd go 158--they're still pretty light and easy to turn, so I think that's a better route. We will mount the bindings to the skis, but you still need to get a final safety check at a shop as we do not adjust for DIN or forward pressure.

My daughter is an intermediate skiier and this would be her first pair of skis. She usually skis 150 - 156's . She wants to progress as a skiier and go faster. She is 5' 4" , 135 pounds and is athletic. Are the 158's too long? Also, is the 65 boot good for that level? Thanks!!
Question by: Kristin on Dec 14, 2021, 10:44 AM
Hi Kristin,

Thanks for your inquiry today.

At your daughters' stats, we would recommend her being on at least a 158 cm ski, could even go up to a162cm length, so certainly not too long. Just right in our minds. At her weight and ability level, the Dalbello boots would offer her more than enough performance now, and as her skills progress as well. Great overall package!

I’m 5’2” 115 lbs. beginner. Shoe size 7. What package do you recommend?
Question by: Olga on Jan 11, 2022, 8:34 AM
Hi Olga,

You would be a 24.0 boot size based on a size 7 shoe.

This a great package for the beginner skier . It will also grow with you performance wise as you progress with your skills. At your height and weight, you should go for the 158cm length ski, and 44" pole.

Have fun!

Hello, I'm an upper intermediate/advanced skier, height 5'7" and 145 lbs. Shoe size 8.5-9 Womens. What ski package do you recommend (skis, bindings, shoes, poles)?
Question by: Jana on Jan 18, 2022, 10:01 PM
Hi Jana,

The package you have listed is for a beginner/intermediate skier which you would outgrow/overpower performance wise being an intermediate/advanced skier.

At your stats your sizes would be as follows:
Ski length: 166cm

I am a 71 y/0 intermediate skier who has been skiing since I was 35, but not skied since 2018 due to a fractured heel and now COVID. My weight is almost 200 and am 5'5". I would love to get back out there with my grandkids - just to cruise, nothing crazy. I sold all my equipment this year due to the age, despite being in great condition and my last pair of skis were Rossi Bandit's 166 cm. What do you think of the Head Absolut Joy package for me in 153 or 158 cm? Is there another one that would better suit me?
Question by: Linda Sue McLeer on Jan 21, 2022, 6:06 PM
Hi Linda,

This would be a great package for you. Approachable, easy to turn and provides great front side performance on those groomers.

Based on your stats, I would go with the 158cm length.

Have fun and enjoy time with the grandkids! Its a generational family sport!

Answer by: Dave Hatoff on Jan 24, 2022, 9:29 AM
If I buy the set, are the bindings adjusted to the appropriate boot size prior to shipping?

Question by: Daisha on Jan 21, 2022, 7:45 PM
Hi Daisha,

Just let us know your boot sole length and will we mount your boot free of charge with the skis and bindings with the purchase of this package. If you don't know what that is, go to our home page and scroll down to "Sizing Information" and you will find Boot Sole Length information.

Hello, I am a beginner but intend to continue to improve to intermediate. Os this package to advanced for that? I am 5’9, 135lbs and in a 9.5 shoe. Is the 163 ski package too small? Thank you.
Question by: Alanna on Jan 25, 2022, 3:22 PM
HI Alanna!
I think you're right on the money with the Absolut in the 163. The skis are light and manageable, so I don't think an improving beginner will be inconvenienced by the skis. The 163 is a good size, I'd say!
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Jan 25, 2022, 3:46 PM
Do the boots have a walk and ski mode
Question by: Sam on Jan 30, 2022, 12:10 PM
HI Sam!
Nope, it's a fixed rear spine.

I am beginner-intermediate (mostly stick to blues, not trying any fancy moves) who will ski primarily east coast (though may make a trip west every few years). I’m 5’7”, female, 130 lbs, size 9.5 shoe. Can you recommend me a ski set and ski/boot/pole size please? Thank you!
Question by: Nicole on Feb 6, 2022, 11:31 PM
Hi Nicole,

This is a great package for a beginner/ intermediate skier that will grow with you performance wise as your ability improves.
At your stats and ability level, I would recommend the 163cm length. 46" pole 26.0 boot.

Have fun!

Hello! I am an intermediate level skier who mainly skis in the Midwest and makes a few trips out West each year. I am 5'5, 130 pounds and women's shoe size between 8-8.5. This will be my first time purchasing a pair of my own skis. Do you think this is a good package? When renting, I usually go with 150s and was thinking 153 in this set. Thank you!
Question by: Emily on Feb 8, 2022, 3:02 PM
HI Emily!
They're nice and light and agile. Good package for sticking to the groomers for sure! 153 sounds right to me!

Beginner/intermediate 5’7 130 lbs. what size ski and pole? thanks
Question by: jennifer on Feb 15, 2022, 10:18 AM
HI Jennifer!
I'd go 158 in that ski and with a 48 inch pole. Have fun!
Answer by: SkiEssentials Expert on Feb 15, 2022, 1:10 PM
I am considering purchasing this as my first set off rentals. I have had a terrible time with shin bang- how are these boots with an individuals with wide calves? I usually wear a women’s size 7 shoe. They usually put me in a 6.5 in rentals, always have a terrible time with my feet/calves after one full day on the mtn. Midwest skier, beginner to intermediate looking to grow with my skiing technique. Thinking about the 158 length at 5’6” about 175.
Question by: Meaghan on Feb 16, 2022, 11:10 AM
HI Meaghan!
The boot is definitely a step up compared to most rentals. They have adjustable upper catches to open the throat of the boot allowing for more comfort in the calf area. I'd also recommend a foot bed of some sort, whether aftermarket Superfeet Green product or a custom bed at a boot shop. I would just indicate that you wear a women's 7 in the field and we'll make the conversion for you. I think 158 is the way to go. Have fun!
