A few inches of fresh snow on corduroy, charging mogul runs top to bottom, or holding an edge on bulletproof, windswept hardpack, with a ski as versatile as the Kore 87, nailing down a single area of expertise is tough. Luckily you don't have to. New for winter 2022/23, Head improved their lightweight freeride Kore line to make these all-mountain favorites ski even better while still managing to shave weight. A lighter ski means less work on your legs and more fun. The Kore 87 is light and stiff, which, when combined with its tight turning radius, makes for a very playful and dynamic ski. The poplar and karuba wood core has a great weight to performance ratio; and it's sandwiched between two layers of fiberglass and two layers of carbon. Most significantly, the added layer of carbon on top curves over the sidewall for a clean finish and increased durability. Giving the new carbon layer a three-dimensional aspect reduces chatter and adds more snap and pop—increasing the Kore's energy when exiting turns as well as overall performance. The Kore 87 is the narrowest offering in the line and also the most nimble with the quickest edge to edge transfer. Tip and tail rocker boost versatility in soft and variable snow, while camber underfoot provides great edge contact for carving the frontside. For intermediate- to expert-level skiers who love carving groomers but still want great performance on bumps or in glades the Head Kore 87 is your answer.
