    Kore 105

    Manufacturer's Description

    For skiers, there is perhaps no greater search than for the perfect ski. Every year, for the past 17 years, that search has been our goal at Powder Week, the annual gathering that produces the Buyer’s Guide. Because skiing is so subjective, rarely is there consensus on one ski.

    This year was different. After 33 skiers ripped around Big Sky, Montana, for four days at the end of February, it was abundantly clear that one ski lead the pack: the Head Kore 105.

    “I loved these,” wrote Crystal Sagan, a backcountry skier from Boulder, Colorado. “Ultimate one-ski quiverso light it would be a great touring ski but railed an edge on groomers and through crud, while still feeling nimble in technical tight spaces.”

    “These skis are super fun and easy to maneuver on any snow condition,‰Û noted Eric Germmann, co-owner of the Ski Monster shop in Boston. “Lightweight without sacrificing a solid feeling underfoot.”

    “Groomer, windbuff, crud, this ski flat out rips,” said Dave Stergar, a middle school teacher from Helena, Montana. “It instills confidence to ski fast with any type of turn.”

    “Winner, added Spencer Harkins, a jib rat from Salt Lake City. “The karuba core/carbon layup keeps this ski super light. But it charges like a resort ski. Perfect flex to absolutely crush, but still soft enough to play around. Dampest ski of the week so far.”

    That all of these skiers have different ski styles says a lot about the Kore, which introduces several new concepts to ski construction. First, the attractive topsheet isn’t even a topsheet, but a heated layer of polyester fleece that normally goes beneath a traditional topsheet, shaving weight by 200 grams per ski.

    Second, the ski utilizes a unique core comprised of lightweight karuba wood (similar to balsa) and koroyd, a thermally molded honeycomb material originally used in helmets. A layer of carbon infused with graphene—an incredibly lightweight material used to strengthen bonds within resins (particularly as it applies to the marriage between carbon and fiberglass)—gives the ski surprising strength in an agile package, allowing you to ski it hard in any terrain. Slight camber with tip and tail rocker, the Kore 105 engages the snow with ease. The 17.8-meter radius makes it quick in the trees and bumps, and many skiers at Powder Week noted its stability on groomers. While the same thing can be said about many skis in this guide, what sets the Kore apart is its lightweight construction. It’s the rare ski that feels like it has metal for performance on hard snow, yet, at just 1755 grams per ski (lighter than many touring skis), would be an ideal touring rig perfectly capable of navigating rocky couloirs, chasing your friends down the bumps, doing hippy turns in low-angle powder.

    There are better skis on hardpack, and in powder, for which you’ll find plenty of options throughout the Buyer’s Guide. But for an everyday ride, the Kore 105 climbed to the top of the stackthis year’s number one ski. —Matt Hansen

    Kore 117

    $800.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    An important aspect of any powder ski is a good strength-to-weight ratio. You want the ski to be light enough that it is easy to turn in deeper snow, but you still want it to be strong enough to be able to power through your turns. With this in mind, Head has created the Kore 117. At a length of 189 centimeters, and 117 millimeters underfoot, the Kore is incredibly light for being such a large ski.

    Head uses karuba wood, which is very lightweight and capable of maintaining its stiffness, unlike balsa wood, which is also light but relatively weaker. Another way the Kore sheds weight but not performance is the lack of a traditional topsheet. Instead of a hard poly or fiberglass, the Kore incorporates a fleece fabric topsheet that is then pressed in the heating process. Surprisingly, it is still strong and resistant to wear. Furthering the solid strength-to-weight ratio is the use of a carbon sandwich construction. Head uses Graphene throughout the entire length of the ski to help keep it consistently rigid.

    Other skis that incorporate a carbon structure tend to have dead spots where the carbon ends, but because it runs the entire length of the Kore, you are left with a much more lively ski. Despite the presence of so much carbon, the Kore is still easy to turn and you will not find yourself being overpowered by the ski. Overall, the Kore 117 is best suited for someone looking for a powder-specific ski. Whether you ski the heavier snow of the East and Pacific Northwest, or the lighter snow found in the Rockies, you would absolutely have fun on the Kore. It is light enough to be used on an every day basis, but the waist width combined with the sidecut can be very noticeable when you get the ski up on edge on a groomer. —Dane Weister

    Kore 93

    $750.00

    BUY NOW

    Manufacturer's Description

    This season, Head cut the fat on their new line of freeride skis by stripping the Head Kore 93 of its traditional plastic top sheet and leaving the polyester fleece top layer exposed and making it the lightest ski in the line.

    Graphene in the tips and tails provides a thin profile that the Union skiers fell for hard. “High level performance inbounds on hardpack, crud, and soft old pow,‰” said Crystal Sagan. “I would love to ski this with tech bindings on the uphill.‰” On the downhill, the Head Kore 93 railed on corduroy and shocked the Union when it didn’t chatter at high speeds thanks to the use of a thermally welded honeycomb material called Koroyd. The lightweight, but strong material gives the Head Kore 93 a notable dampness that isn’t typical of skis at this weight.

    “This is an exciting new ski,‰” said Abigail Barronian, noting the ski uses the same honeycomb core that is typically found in helmets. “It carves amazingly on groomers, is responsive and I felt really confident on it right away. It rips.‰”

    The Karuba wood core keeps the Kore 93 poppy and playful, and ski instructor Kelsey Barnes said as hard as she tried to push this ski to wobble and bounce, it remained stable. For deeper days, the Union collectively agreed they’d rather opt for a wider ski underfoot, like the similarly constructed Head Kore 105. —Sierra Davis
