Head Cyclic 115 Ski - Men's: The Cyclic is a helicopter’s steering control. Control, combined with a healthy dose of power, is precisely what you get with HEAD’s new Cyclic 115. With Tip and Tail Rocker (TNT) and camber underfoot, this ski allows you to effortlessly float over untracked powder or carve turns through the crud and bumps. As part of HEAD's new Big Mountain “Flight Series”, the Cyclic features Tip and Tail Stabilizer (TTS) technology: an exoskeleton made of fiberglass-enhanced elastomers built into the rockered areas of the ski for vibration reduction, stability, and torsional strength. So, do yourself a favor and climb aboard a pair of HEAD Cyclic’s for your next adventure. No matter how gnarly the terrain, the Cyclic offers levels of control and confidence that will help you fly!
Does not come with binding
As you size up the line you're about to conquer, you flip the snow off of the Head Cyclic 115 Ski tip and yell down to your partner: Dropping, in 3, 2, 1! Then you push off with your ski poles, make three sweeping turns onto a pillow line, and point it. Made for big-mountain freeride chargers who love to push their limits, the Cyclic 115 features a TNT rocker profile (40% rockered tip for superb floatation and 60% camber underfoot for solid edge grip) that allows you to ski fast and fluid down big faces.
This aggressive freeride ski features Sandwich Cap construction which has a wood-core laminate layup with shortened vertical sidewalls and a cap that wraps just over the top edges of the sidewalls. As a result, you have a ski that's exceptionally durable, that provides solid edge grip, and that has a touch of forgiveness. To further ensure that the Cyclic can take a beating, Head equipped it with TuffWalls technology (impact-resistant ABS sidewalls) to maintain responsiveness and ensure durability.
Built with Head's TTS (Tip and Tail Stabilizer System), this distinctive exoskeletal structure in the tip and tail has raised ribs to prevent twisting which also allows the thickness of the ski to be reduced at the extremities. Reduced extremity thickness means reduces swing weight. An ISS (Independent Suspension System) is also incorporated into the tip, tail, and underfoot structure to dampen vibrations and reduce the annoying "tip flap" for a super smooth ride during low- to high-speed turns. The Diecut UHM C supplies a durable workhorse base material that you can rely on for seasons of abuse.
When I go ski I wan to have as much fun as I can. When I first tried the Cyclic, "I was hooked on a feeling." A feeling of invincibility and joy. Every turn was not easy, but fun. I could slash, and carve at high speeds with a very stable confidence. Powder was a dream, as the perfect rocker profile made it so I barely had to lean back at all, so my legs did not get tired. I have had a few days on this ski since my first test, and I learn more about my skiing and how to play more an more every time. So fun.
I have been riding the Cyclic since last march and I honestly could not be happier with the ski. Initially I spent some just getting used to it but I found that within no time I was able to adjust easily. The skis transfer from edge to edge with ease and enjoy high speeds even on groomers. In deeper snow they stay afloat and can handle everything I have thrown at them so far. They love pillows and love getting airborne. Great swing weight coupled with a solid ski allows them to do what ever is needed.
I could not agree with Tyson more. I had the opportunity to skin and play on the Cyclic Skis for a week hut trip outside of Golden BC and I could not have asked for a more responsive play full ski. We skied everything from charging big lines to pillows and the skis were awesome! I have thrown away my other skis and use this ski exclusively from on mountain to skinning.
The new Cyclic 115 is definitely my main choice from the Head line for everyday skiing on and off the resort. The versatility of this ski is really amazing. I love that I can be confident in a deep pow turn right into a sick carve on the groomers. You can't go wrong if you choose this ski in the morning for any condition that comes at you!
I used this ski touring up at Whitewater on Sunday, second day of the year, it was the most the most responsive and playful ski I have ever skied on. They were easy to throw around, and great for skinning up steep hills. They are a great, light versatile ski. Can't wait to go again!
The Head cyclic 115, my number one choice from Head's already stacked line up of freeride skis. This ski will hold up against anything you throw at it. Whether your slaying big lines or crushing pillows in the Backcountry, or banging off laps at the resort this ski will do it all with ease!
I have only skied the Cyclic a few times, and every time I had a lot of fun.
I found it had enough rocker to float around, butter about and play in soft snow but it was still sturdy enough to stomp lines.
Cant wait to get it into some proper pow!
... skis for every kind of conditions: from deepest powder in BC to skiing tracked out comp lines!
Stiff enough underfoot and smooth enough tip and tail rocker to do all kind of fun stuff.
There was not one single day for me without having a blast on those amazing skis.
