Kore 105

Powder - - SKIS - —Heather Hans­man

The con­struc­tion layup for the Head Kore 105 sounds like the build-out for a sexy ro­bot: Graphene, ko­royd, karuba, “top­less tech.” Ski engi­neer­ing can be full of buzz­words and gim­micky ma­te­ri­als, but don’t let any sense of fu­ture-fear turn you off to this ski. Thanks to that tech­nol­ogy, the Kore 105, the Ski of the Year last year, is a highly ver­sa­tile stick that’s shock­ingly light (1755 grams) but still stable. The ski is as com­fort­able rail­ing groomers as it is piv­ot­ing through the steep, snowy trees at Red. At a rea­son­able width un­der­foot, the Kore 105 is an ev­ery­day ski for West­ern skiers. Maybe the fu­ture isn’t so bad af­ter all.
