Offered on the men's side in 93, 99, 105, and 117 versions, the formidable Kore is going to also be available in women's versions (93 and 99) for next year. Don't worry, ladies—these are the same Kores but with more sizes and a slightly more forward recommended mount point. The other Kores will also be offered in shorter sizes, opening the line up to more skiers. Also important in the 2020 Head skis lineup: the revered Supershapes get fresh paint jobs but no other changes.
On the boot side, Head carries its Kore momentum into the freeride touring market with the Kore 1 and Kore 2 models.
Supershape topsheets change, but the skis stay the same.
The Kore 99, 105, and 117 will be offered in more sizes.

For the most part, there are no bad days of skiing. There are good days. Great days. And, of course, best days.
When the universe conspires to give you a best day, it's normal to feel like you lack the words or megapixels to capture it. Good news—in 10 years, you'll remember it whether or not you told anyone or saved photos. One essential: the right skis for the job.
Don't show up for your would-be powder day of the season an hour late and 20 millimeters short. Mobilize a pair of fat skis, and keep 'em ready. Which skis, you ask? We've got some ideas.
And the Best Powder Skis of 2019 are...

2020 Head Kore 117 Description:
The widest ski in the wildly popular Head Kore lineup isn't the stiffest, most bulletproof powder ski out there. Try the Volkl Confession. It's not the poppiest or surfiest either. Try the Atomic Bent Chetler 120. Nor is it the softest. Try the Majesty Lumberjack. So, what in the heck is the Kore 117? Well, it's everything. A lightweight, all-in-one, freeride powder tool that could power you to the center of the Earth and back. We like that 117mm waist width for every type of powder day, and we love how the light-n-strong Graphene saves your legs. It's simple: Try the Kore 117.
