The Curated Take
I hadn't skied any of the Kore line, and wondered if the price tag of around $800 was worth it. My first impression was, this ski can do it all. I got to ski them on a decent day at Solitude Resort UT and took runs on groomers, moguls, trees, leftover powder, park, you name it. And they did pretty darn well on everything. I was impressed at how aggressively I could ski them for how little they weighed compared to other stiff, aggressive skis. They floated well enough to enjoy, they carved like a dream, and could take top speeds and high powered turns. They wouldn't be a great option for lighter or lower level intermediate or beginner skiers. They do require some decent technique, they want to carve, not slide turns, and they might feel unforgiving for a skier who isn't confident. For the Advanced to Expert all mountain skier who wants a ski that can do a bit of everything though, this is a great ski option.
- All mountain versatility
- Aggressive skiing
- Too stiff for beginners
- Not forgiving
- Requires decent technique
The KORE 99's superpower is multitasking around the mountain. The ski's construction reduces weight without sacrificing performance, resulting in a nimble freeride ski with a lightweight construction that adds great touring capability. The core's materials have a high strength-to-weight ratio and include Graphene, Karuba wood and multi layers of carbon. HEAD's new topsheet shape, a sandwich sidewall construction, and tip and tail rocker add hero attributes to the KORE 99: stability, agility and power.
