SKI TECHNOLOGY: KERS
THE EXTRA BOOST
KERS Technology works like a turbo charger that provides additional power and acceleration by stiffening the tail of the ski in outturns. The effect: a boost, catapulting the rider into the next turn. Just like when Formula 1 pilots push a button for that extra notch of Speed. HEAD KERS Technology is an electronic, fully automatic and integrated system.
HEAD KERS Technology is an evolution of the idea behind HEAD‘s Intelligence™ Technology. But unlike Intelligence™, KERS does not influence the torsional stiffness of the ski, KERS empowers the skis‘ longitudinal flex. Also KERS Technology is based on a completely new chip capable of accumulating power and keeping it in store for the right moment. Piezoelectric fibers transform kinetic energy into electrical energy which is stored in the embedded chip in the ski. Electrical energy is immediately released to areas of the ski, where additional energy is requested by the sensor. Timing and release are automatically controlled and coordinated. Depending on the flex pattern of different ski models, sensors are programmed beforehand: the more aggressive the ski has to be, the stiffer the tail will become.
Skis experience maximum flex at the end of a turn. At this moment an active microchip releases energy into the fibers of the tail. The tail of the ski then stiffens up, immediately increasing rebound for maximum acceleration at the end of the outturn.
INTELLIGENCE™ TECHNOLOGY: Piezoelectric fibers that absorb vibrations at the speed of light. As you ski faster, the Intelligence™ stiffens the ski to increase stability. It adapts to where and how you ski.
Hand built by the finest ski technicians in the modern world. The vertical laminate wood core is embraced by speedfreak phenolic sidewalls and the finest Titanal. This is the fastest construction on the planet.
RD RACING TOP SHEET: A thinner topsheet material designed to maximize responsiveness. Exclusive to our RD skis.
RACE STRUCTURED UHM C BASE: The highest quality, fastest base and finish known to man. The technicians who build the skis for our World Cup Rebels use the same material and machines to put this scary fast base and structure into your skis.
REBEL CAMBER: Some years ago it was years ago, it was rebellious to have rocker. Now, it’s rebellious to have camber. With Rebel Camber, we feature explosive acceleration and excellent edge grip for the World Cup Rebel inside you.
FREEFLEX PRO: Best performance enabled by the innovative Freeflex Pro System. The free-gliding heel allows the ski to bend through unimpeded and to retain its natural dynamics. Due to the reduced stand height, the Freeflex band is now much closer to the ski boot. Constant release values reduce the risk of injury and ensure safe ski steering.
