Currently based in Austria, the company was founded by Howard Head, an aeronautical engineer who was surprised during one of his winter sports stays at the generalization of wooden skis at a time when the products were mostly manufactured plastic or metal. Taking advantage of the technologies used in aeronautics such as the fuselage or rolling, the brand releases its very first pair of aluminum skis that offers remarkable resistance and facilitates, among other things, turns.
One of the brand's specialties is winter sports equipment, whether it is ski boots, snowboards or skis. Present in the leisure and competition sectors, the brand has various ambassadors among the best athletes on the international scene such as Bode Miller, Ted Ligety or Lindsey Vonn. However, the brand is not only for the champions of the slopes, far from it. It has successfully developed its many innovations and all its equipment for the benefit of skiers and snowboarders of all levels and for all disciplines ranging from freestyle skiing to all-mountain skiing to ski Race, including performance remains intact regardless of the type of snow.
Also making available to amateurs a very varied collection of used skis, the brand has recently distinguished itself with the release of its new ranges of skis in the freeride and all-mountain segments: Monster and Instinct. While the former are more interested in off-piste practice with 3 different widths, the second and its 5 skis offer a lightness and handling more suited to conventional slopes. For the quality of its products ranging from skiing to ski boots to snowboarding, not to mention its HEAD used skis, this brand remains, more than 50 years after its creation, one of the major players in its field.
