Intro

The Wild Joy is Head’s newest women’s-specific all-mountain ski, which they say is for both the “steepest slopes and the deepest powder.”

That’s certainly not the first time a company has made a similar claim, but there are a few features that make the Wild Joy fairly unique: it’s light, it has wide tips and a relatively narrow 90 mm waist, and a very stiff flex pattern. I was eager to see if the Wild Joy really could function as a true all-mountain ski, or if the stiffness and narrow width would limit it mostly to on-piste skiing.

Flex Pattern

The Wild Joy is a very stiff ski in general, and especially for a women’s-specific model. We’d sum up its flex pattern like this:

Tips: 8
Shovels: 9
Underfoot: 9
Behind the Heel piece: 9/8
Tails: 9
