Default Head Snowboards?

Whats the general consensus about these boards? It seems that it is more difficult to find the Head Intelligence boards. Is it just a gimmick? Anyone here have one or have experience with them?

Yeah, I was researching it, and that intelligence tech is amazing. Quite hard to find unfortunately. There aren't many places that carry them so less deals.

Realistically the whole concept of the head ICT chip is minimal. They over build their boards so it's already stiff to begin with then at speed it supposedly stiffens up. The effect is very minimal at best. Plus Head is pulling out of the US market.

I don't know about their boards, but my wife has some crazy Head skis and she loves them. The last Head board I used was a rental years ago, so my experience with them is somewhat minimal.

I also heard that head skis were good as well. That's unforunate that Head is pulling out of the US market.

in the eyes of the average US customer, Head makes tennis racquets and rental equipment

A buddy has a Head snowboard, and I can't stand it.
I love their skis, but their snowboards just aren't my thing.
