Новата  Head KERS технологија

Fomula HEAD - KERS

The new HEAD KERS Technology shakes the World Cup race circuit.

Last year the HEAD racing team was one of the fastest teams of the entire season.
 And we intend to keep it that way. That’s why we made the fastest skis on earth
 a little faster for 2010/11. The secret is called KERS Technology. Originating in Formula 1
and putting Didier Cuche, Bode Miller and Co. where they belong: in pole.
KERS will be winning loads of medals in the World Cup.

The Extra Boost.

KERS Technology works like a turbo charger that provides additional power and
acceleration by stiffening the tail of the ski in outturns. The effect: a boost, catapulting
 the rider into the next turn. Just like when Formula 1 pilots push a button for that extra
 notch of speed. HEAD KERS Technology is an electronic, fully automatic and integrated system.

How It Works.

Skis experience maximum flex at the end of a turn. At this moment an active microchip
 releases energy into the fibers of the tail. The tail of the ski then stiffens up, immediately
increasing rebound for maximum acceleration at the end of the outturn.

Technical Background.

HEAD KERS Technology is an evolution of the idea behind HEAD’s Intelligence
Technology. But unlike Intelligence, KERS does not influence the torsional stiffness of the ski,
KERS empowers the skis’ longitudinal flex. Also KERS Technology is based on a completely
new chip capable of accumulating power

and keeping it in store for the right moment. Piezoelectric fibers transform kinetic energy into
 electrical energy which is stored in the embedded chip in the ski. Electrical energy is immediately
released to areas of the ski, where additional energy is requested by the sensor. Timing and release
are automatically controlled and coordinated. Depending on the flex pattern of different ski models,
sensors are programmed beforehand: the more aggressive the ski has to be, the stiffer the tail will become.
