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.

There's West Coast ice. And then there's East Coast ice. And make no mistake -- it's a whole different animal.
You may hear Coloradans bemoaning "dust on crust." An inconvenient stretch followed by small pockets of snow where skiers take refuge. Nobody likes dust on crust. But East Coasters, you know ice on a whole different level. Ice frozen for the better half of the year, tinged yellow. Runs that resemble frozen falls. Vermonters, take pride in your ice. Own the ice. BE the ice!
But first, you'll need the finest ice-taming tools. Check out Powder7's top picks for the best women's carving skis of 2019.

2020 Head Super Joy Description:
Last year, the Super Joy was an undisputed favorite among Powder7 customers when it came to womens carving skis. And not just because its name automatically means it will make you happy. At 75mm underfoot, the Super Joy flashes in and out of turns with precision and ease. Redesigned with Heads LYT Tech construction, the Super Joy is thicker at the tips and tails and thinner underfoot with Graphene and Karuba wood fully embedded. It also incorporates V-Shape tech for better control. In simple terms: it got lighter and even easier to ski. But, as per the Head reputation, it still rips and it's still reliable.
