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.

2019 Head Kore 117 Description:
The Kore series of skis demonstrated just how far ski technology has come. Light and stable, composed and agile, and most importantly fun to ride. The Kore 117 is a powder slaying heavyweight that floats like a butterfly. Significant taper in the tips and tails provide crud busting performance and minimize hooking in chunky snow. Tip and tail rocker ensure float is always on tap, and a long turn radius lends immense stability at speed. As far as lightweight powder skis go the Kore 117 is one of the best options on the market, and should be on your radar if you appreciate unparalleled float and confident powder riding.
