The Chip 78 is an all-mountain men's ski from Head's Chip lineup.  The ski features Head's Intelligence CHIP technology which utilizes Intellifibers to adapt the stiffness of the ski to the rider and riding conditions.  It also includes Liquidmetal technology and a railflex base for better performance.  The Chip 78 has Worldcup sandwich construction with a race structured UHM C base for strength and speed.  It differs with the Chip 71 since it has a wider waist for better edge performance.  The ski is recommended for expert skiers and is suited both for groomed slopes and off-piste deep snow.  The Chip 78 is suggested for use with Head's RDF 14 bindings and comes in a black color.
