Don't you hate cliches? They get used and overused so much that they lose all their meaning. Not every car that marketers call a daily driver is equally appropriate for everyday use...Prius does not equal Honda Odyssey. In skiing, we have a similar conundrum: the one-ski-quiver. Everybody wants it, so ski after ski after ski gets the moniker. But, really, few skis actually do everything well enough to satisfy good skiers. The Head Kore 99 is one of these skis. With new-age construction and old-school timelessness, it busts cliches like powder pillows. The 99mm waist width and stiff flex make it rigid and nimble enough to carve groomers all day or zipperline bumps. But the tapered tips and healthy rocker mean excellent flotation for soft snow. Rad dads, ski testers, and freeriders agree - the Kore 99 is a real one-ski-quiver. Similar skis: Salomon QST 99, Kastle FX96 HP, Blizzard Rustler 10.
