Our pick of this season's best Head snowboard gear

If Head tennis rackets are good enough for Andy Murray to win Wimbledon, then their snowboards are more than good enough for you to shred around the mountain on.

Head’s roots in snowboarding run deep. Klaus Thurner and Charly Messmer started working on Mistral Snowboards in 1990, which would evolve into Generics Snowboards and Blax boots before those companies were acquired by Head in 2000. The former employees were retained and set to work on the first range of Head-branded snowboard products, which debuted in 2001. Staying true to the ethos of keeping it real, Head snowboards is still making core products that are suitable for riders of all ages and abilities.

Head Snowboards is all about the people who want innovative and high-quality products. Working with their pro riders, Head gains an insight into what snowboarders really need. With the input of engineers and production experts, Head has made strides in snowboard technology. Space age technology such as intellifibres give Head a superior ride that’s affordable. Luis Eckert, Cody Bramwell and Sina Candrian are but three of the bosses sending it on Head gear.

Head are also involved in sharing their knowledge with retailers and snowboard schools in order to benefit the whole snowboard industry. They call it the intelligence loop where “passion from riding meets technology making a product that rides better”. This combination of passion, technology and intelligence are a winning formula for Head.

Head e-Pulse LYT Snowboard 2022-2023

PRICE: £520 / €600 / $659

Head has a long history of experimenting with electronic chips in snowboards. As far back as the mid-2000s it was offering versions of the KERS system (a name familiar to motorsports fans), and it’s still at it today with what it’s calling EMC (Energy Management Circuit) Technology. The Head e-Pulse LYT aims to harness this technology to deliver a smoother ride from lighter materials, but it’s far from a one-trick pony.

Who Is The Head e-Pulse LYT For?

This one is for those keen on carving, charging and dropping the odd cliff here and there. Spinners and flippers need not apply. If you also like your board tech to come with a dollop of complicated physics, you’re laughing.
