Head Kore 93 2018 | Ski Review

November 13th, 2017

 

Brand new for winter 2018, the Head Kore 93 is the ultimate upgrade from your old piste skis, to a versatile all-mountain ski. If you feel like your racey on-piste skis are limiting your mountain exploring capabilities, give these lightweight Kore 93’s a try. Head have made use of the latest materials and technologies available to create a ski that’s not only lighter than a low-fat yoghurt (reportedly only 1.61kg per ski at 180cm), but also smooth and stable on the piste and ultra-floaty in the powder. What’s more, the Head Kore 93 is so light, you can just whack some touring bindings on it (Head-approved only, mind) and you’ve got yourself a ski that you can literally take anywhere while avoiding that, “why didn’t I bring a different ski today?” scenario.

What exactly makes the Head Kore 93 so light? A combination of carbon, lightweight shock absorbing material-of-the-moment, Koroyd, and Nobel Prize winning mega-element, graphene, that’s what. Instead of writing an essay about it, I’ll just tell you that when these materials are combined, they provide a staggering strength to weight ratio and incredible dampening properties. This means you can step up to freeride ski length without worrying about excessive tip and tail chatter or uncomfortable juddering when you really want to get the edges in. The 93mm waist of the Head Kore 93, combined with a mid-sized radius will also ease the piste to freeride transition by providing optimal float and easy pivot-ability whether you’re spending the day charging with the boys or playing on the piste with your kids.
