HEAD’s KORE series was met with a standing ovation last winter, and instead of messing with a great thing, the brand brings back the 117 unchanged for its encore. Tester Drew Ingardia raved that the ski was “so easy to move around the hill.” Chalk that up to the ski’s internal construction featuring a featherweight karuba wood core stiffened up with a layer of ultra-strong, ultra-thin Graphene and vibration-reducing Koroyd for ultimate firmness without compromising weight. Triaxial-woven carbon fiber further solidifies the sandwich construction, making it one heck of a crud buster and that 117 mm waist width boosts its capabilities as a powder hound. For a fall line skier that wants an aggressive, lightweight and agile choice for deeper days, the Kore 117 is your best bet.
