Head know a thing or two about making things built for speed and power, thanks to decades spent meeting the needs of hard-charging ski racers. The Head Pilot is a new snowboard for 2016/17, which channels all that experience into a take-no-prisoners groomer gun.
Never ones to shy away from embracing new technology (see also their iKers system), they’ve gone with a liberal application of graphene. You might have seen that stuff mentioned in the news; essentially souped-up carbon fibre, it’s a highly conductive material that’s roughly 100 times stronger than steel. Featured in the nose of the Pilot, it compliments the rest of the board’s build – including a honeycomb structure to further shave off the grams – to ensure it’ll maintain stability and response even at Mach 3.
Don’t be afraid to take it to the powder too, especially if you like following the fall line down mega-steep faces. The profile has rocker sections at the nose and tail, while the rest of the deck is flat enough and wide enough to give you the float you need.
Basically this thing wants to go fast, so if you’re up to the challenge then the Head Pilot will let you feel the G’s all day long.
