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.

2019 Head Total Joy Description:
Joy is a word that does not get used often enough these days. People just say that certain things make them “happy”, which is not good enough to describe how you will feel riding this ski. Head utilizes Graphene Koroyd Carbon construction to keep the weight of this ski absurdly low while creating a finely tuned and accessible flex pattern. AllRide Rocker makes for easy turn initiation and some added float in deeper snow. The 85mm waist means this ski can ride bowls in the morning, and rip groomers in the afternoon. This ski has a playful and easygoing personality that loves riding whatever you do. In summary; It is a Total Joy
