The new Head A-Star is edgy and bold; both in looks and performance. This is a stiff and powerful ski geared towards shredding steep pow and big lines to ribbons. With relatively low camber and a burly construction, the A-Star compensates for its lack of energy with a large dose of stability to help manage huge drops and high speeds. While it isn't the most playful floater, this pair of planks was a hard-charging snow slasher that didn't fool around on steep terrain. It's boaty, fast, and mean.
We've confirmed with Head that the A-Star is no longer a member of their ski line. As of now, a few major retailers still have these skis in stock so act quickly if you're interested in owning a pair.
