Let's start with the iRally. What can I say about the iRally now that I haven’t said before? Not much other than for 2018, Head installed a new GripWalk-compatible PRD binding that is a huge improvement over its predecessor, not because it is GW-compatible but because the new AFD design changed the delta of the binding, allowing a much more natural stance. On-snow precision is something the iRally delivers in spades, which is why this Head has been a darling of technical skiers and instructors since its introduction.
Liberty?? Some will ask, Who the ^%&# is Liberty? Others might ask, Why does it deserve this Cage Match? A select few who have been lucky enough to get on this awesome new ski will say, This is gonna be good. Well, the all-new V-Series with its VMT (Vertical Metal Technology) is the real deal. The elongated tip profile will start any turn shape you ask of it, and the bamboo/poplar core is light yet damp and has the power you expect from a 76mm-waisted ski. Please, take our word for it: this is a Cage Match where there is no wrong answer; you can stand up tall and say, "Give me Liberty or give me ... the other great option!"
- Why choose the iRally? You know exactly what you want in a hard-snow ski, you read our reviews, you read everyone else's ... we all agree, the iRally is the reference ski in the category.
- Why choose the V76? You are ready for something different, you want a 76mm ski that doesn’t have to be worked hard to ski in 3D snow, you want a ski that is playful and has a sense of humor ... how many skis in this category can you say that about?
