Head’s Kizamu is all new for the 19/20 season, and it’s their lightest board to date. Featuring their new Lyt technology – the Kizamu is perfect for carving down those morning groomers at lightning speed or cruising through the good stuff on a powder day.
Head’s new Lyt technology uses Graphene and Super Light Balsa Wood in its construction to knock some precious weight off the board (up to 22% less than their traditional construction), whilst maintaining its strength through its Hexagonally constructed core, keeping it as bombproof as an old Nokia phone.
“This is a board designed to boost your all mountain charging up a couple levels from the moment you strap in”
The stiff flex of the board means it makes for some razor sharp precision carving at top speeds, without the rider being overcome with chatter or general bouncing about. Obviously, the trade off is a little less forgiveness and manoeuvrability at slower speeds. With that in mind, some riders may want to consider the more accessible, beginner friendly, option – the Anything.
You don’t have to ride like Pierre Vaultier on steroids through an Olympic boarder-X to benefit from this technology either. Lighter, stiffer boards are more agile, have better float and allow you to ride harder and faster, for longer. This is a board designed to boost your all mountain charging up a couple levels from the moment you strap in.
The directional shape and setback stance also gives increased volume in the nose and, combined with the additional insert pack which allow you to strap in further back on the board, it’s a perfect setup for riders looking for a versatile deck with plenty of credentials to get out exploring the backcountry on.
Those looking for a specialist carving or backcountry board will find some comfort in this mid-range purchase.
