In past years, the Head Kore 87 Skis has been a ski just for hard charging groms. New for this year, you can get the-skinny waisted Kore in adult sizes too. With the same Topless Tech and Koroyd, graphene, carbon, and karuba layup that makes the bigger Kore's so incredibly good at such incredibly low weights, you can only imagine how light and nimble these little skis are. You might want to consider tying them up with a balloon string when you take a lunch break, just to make sure they don't float away. If you choose to tour on them, just make sure you can keep up with the skis as they might begin ascending the skin track without you. As you might expect from a fairly stiff ski with a tight sidecut radius, these things are excellent in hard snow conditions, but thanks to their shape and construction, they can also handle the softer stuff better than any 87mm wide ski has any business doing.
Rocker / Camber / Rocker
Karuba / Poplar Lightweight Wood Core – Utilizing karuba wood in the core gives you the perfect balance of density, durability, and weight.
Topless Tech – The topsheet surface is replaced with a Polyester Fleece to reduce weight.
Koroyd – Koroyd is a honeycomb shaped material at the heart of the KORE. It's super lightweight and incredibly elastic, providing strong torsional stiffness and stability.
Graphene Fused Tip and Tail – Graphene is the strongest, lightest material known to man. It is fused into the KORE's tip and tail to make it lighter and more responsive in deep snow.
Sandwich Cap Construction – Head takes the basic framework from the world cup sandwich and place a cap that just wraps over the top edge of the sidewall to make the ski more suitable for all mountain skiing. Bomber construction with a rounded top edge makes for one incredible all-country ski.
Structured UHM C Base – The same high quality material used in Head's world-leading race skis is used here. Different structured running base for all conditions.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
