Hi, I'm Thom. I just got off of the Head Natural Instinct. This is a 5 out of 5 star ski. This little thing impressed the heck out of me. It's really geared for your kind of first time and never-ever type skier but it honestly would be good all the way up to just a solid kind of casual blue cruiser type skier. For the beginner side it does skid and smear the turn very easily so it's really controlled, a really easy ski for you to get out there and feel comfortable. The thing does actually start to tip up on edge and carve a turn too so you can really progress and it's a ski that you can have for a while and really push yourself and improve as a skier. 5 out of 5 stars.

I'm Adam and I was just skiing on the Head Natural Instinct. I give this ski 5 out of 5 stars. At this price point this thing skis fantastic. It would be great for that true beginner all the way up to that solid intermediate. For the price of this ski you really get a lot of technology. You get a great rocker profile, a full binding system. It just skis fantastic. It can skid turns and, once you start improving, you can really start to even carve turns on it. 5 out of 5 stars.

Hey, this is Jeff. I just got off the Head Natural Instinct. This is a great entry-level system ski. I give it 4 out of 5 stars. This is for somebody that's maybe coming out of rental equipment; their first systems package. It skis surprisingly well. I think it's a great ski to carry you further on down the road into more upper intermediate skiing. This is actually not the graphic. This is a prototype. The actual graphic will be black with red so it won't look quite this way but it is called the Natural Instinct so 4 out of 5 stars for the Head Instinct.

Hi, I'm Josh. Just got done riding the Natural Instinct by Head. Give this ski 4 out of 5 stars. It's a great ski for that kind of beginner to beginner-intermediate skier who is looking for more of a frontside oriented carving ski. The medium length turns were great - nice and smooth. It can handle long radius and also some short radius turns. I guess that sweet spot is right in that medium radius. If you're a beginner trying to hone your skills or get a little bit more into that intermediate category, this would be a great ski for you. 4 out of 5 stars.

Hey, I'm Mike. I just got done skiing the all new Head Natural Instinct. I'm going to give this ski a 4 out of 5 stars. I would say this ski is really for your advanced beginner all the way up through your intermediate who is really wanting to learn how to carve a ski. I felt like once you started to get this ski turned over on edge it really took over and helped you initiate the turn and complete it and in a really satisfying way. This is going to be really good for somebody that's primarily on the frontside of the mountain wanting to take very short and medium radius turns. Long radius it tended to wash out a little bit but that's not really where this ski is intended to be used. So, if you're a beginner all the way through an intermediate this Head Natural Instinct would be good for you.

Hey, this is Lucas. I just got off the Natural Instinct by Head Skis. I'm going to give this ski a 3.5 out of 5 stars. It's a beginner to intermediate level ski. It just really, really felt like it wanted to turn no matter what. I enjoyed it but I would something that can take a little longer turn on the frontside of the mountain and this ski just felt like it wanted to keep edge-to-edge and didn't leave much room for improvement. Not the ski for me but again 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Hi, this Hans. I just came off the Head Natural Instinct. This is definitely a ski that's for somebody that's buying their first pair of skis, coming off rental equipment. It turns real easy. You can slight the ski. It won't hook up on you but if you put on-edge it actually holds pretty well. I give this ski a 3 out of 5. Again, it's for the beginning, that aspiring intermediate skier.
