KORE 87 WOMEN'S SKI 20

New for this year, the Kore W comes in a narrower waist option. With the same Topless Tech and Koroyd, graphene, carbon, and karuba layup that makes the bigger Kore's so incredibly good at such incredibly low weights, you can only imagine how light and nimble these little skis are. You might want to consider tying them up with a balloon string when you take a lunch break, just to make sure they don't float away. If you choose to tour on them, just make sure you can keep up with the skis as they might begin ascending the skin track without you. As you might expect from a fairly stiff ski with a tight sidecut radius, the Head Kore 87 W Skis are excellent in hard snow conditions, but thanks to their shape and construction, they can also handle the softer stuff better than anything this skinny has any business doing.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker

Core

Karuba / Poplar Lightweight Wood Core – Utilizing karuba wood in the core gives you the perfect balance of density, durability, and weight.

Laminates

Topless Tech – The top sheet surface is replaced with a Polyester Fleece to reduce weight.

Koroyd – Koroyd is a honeycomb-shaped material at the heart of the KORE. It's super lightweight and incredibly elastic, providing strong torsional stiffness and stability.

Graphene Fused Tip and Tail – Graphene is the strongest, lightest material known to man. It is fused into the KORE's tip and tail to make it lighter and more responsive in deep snow.

Carbon

Glass Fiber

Dampening Layer

Sidewalls

Sandwich Cap Construction – Head takes the basic framework from the world cup sandwich and place a cap that just wraps over the top edge of the sidewall to make the ski more suitable for all mountain skiing. Bomber construction with a rounded top edge makes for one incredible all-country ski.

Base

Structured UHM C Base – The same high quality material used in Head's world-leading race skis is used here. Different structured running base for all conditions.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
