Head Peak 78
Released January, 2009
The Pros:Versatile - suitable for use on both groomed snow and deep powder. Designed for a wider range of skiers when compared to the original. Very different from the 2010 version - a substantial upgrade.
The Cons:Many of the features benefit advanced skiers only. Soft construction - not for everyone.
