This Ski Is A Staff Favorite:
I would call myself an upper intermediate skier, and I was really surprised by this ski. The Total Joy was an absolute blast to carve on. It was really easy to flex into the ski and engage the edge. I felt like I had a lot of control and confidence on steeper slopes, and I was able to hit my top speed without any chatter. At 5'2" I skied on the 153 which was the perfect length for me.

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.

2020 Head Total Joy Description:
For 2019-2020, Head redesigned their popular Joy series of womens skis. The widest version, the Total Joy, is one of our top picks for intermediate skiers. With LYT Tech construction and Graphene, it skis ridiculously light and doesn't wear you out. You think and it turns. But more aggressive skiers should take a look as well. Behind the turn-friendly tip rocker, abundant camber and a turn-happy sidecut make the Total Joy an awesome carving ski... as most Head skis are. If you want to channel your inner Lindsay Vonn without the terrifying skis and breakneck speeds, the Total Joy may be your ticket.
