The Head Pure Joy SLR Pro Skis w/ Joy 9 GW Bindings are the perfect combination for skiers just getting acclimated to the sport or wanting to stop renting and but their first set up to call their own. Built with a synthetic core, Head is really able to keep them easy to turn, while the addition of a Graphene laminate increases the strength and bolsters the performance in a very good way. At 73 millimeters underfoot, these skis are the ideal width for gentle turning and learning how to carve a clean turn. Best suited for beginner to intermediate skiers and at slower speeds, the Pure Joy doesn't try to make itself something it's not. Rather, it takes the intended audience and allows them to experience all the fun parts of exploring different mountains and alpine environments. These are a step up from a rental set up for sure, but the value of the skis and bindings is a great thing to behold. When you click in to the Head Pure Joy skis with bindings, you can continue to progress without outgrowing your equipment performance wise, and that means value that grows with you. For skiers who want to grow their skill and really enjoy the sport and all it has to offer, the Head Pure Joy SLR Pro Skis w/ Joy 9 GW Bindings is really an absolute "Joy" for new skiers to gravitate to the awesome sport of skiing.
