Head Kore 105
Head Kore 105
When the run opens up and it's time to point it, you're all over it, but first you have to survive the steep technical section at the top that's 20 feet wide. That sort of day calls for the special talents of the Head Kore 105 Skis, which in their short existence have garnered a reputation among chargers as a ski that combines light agility and stompin' straight line stability like no other. This ski loves speed and really comes alive above 25 mph, and the 105 mm width is money for daily driver duty in the high mountains.
Head into your freeride adventure with the Kore 105. The Tip-Tail Rocker gives you the perfect buoyancy in the finest powder. The Karuba wood core makes skiing extremely easy. The Graphene, Koroyd, and Carbon sandwich construction redefines your performance level. In addition to damping, the processed Koroyd gives you precise control on every terrain. The carbon layers guarantee torsional stiffness for better agility and solid use of edges. Graphene on the tip and tail allows for a thin profile, so that you can glide along soft snow. No matter what is waiting for you out on the mountain. You will be ready and discover the lightness of being.

The HEAD KORE 105 is back for its sophomore season and once again garners glowing reviews from our ski testers. “Loved how smooth the turn initiation was on these puppies,” said FREESKIER staffer Cian O’Connor. Scott Kramer told us, “The KORE series is badass. The 105 is a great width for a little of everything,” and fellow tester Mike Filander described it as “so fun, these would make a bad boy want to kiss his mama.” The ski combines featherweight karuba wood with Graphene, Koroyd and carbon fiber, all of which boast incredible strength-to-weight ratios, to achieve its versatile character.

Karuba Light Wood Core – Karuba gives the Kore series skis their pop and personality. It's the perfect ratio of density and weight. The advantages of combining Karuba, Koroyd and Graphene enhance the ski, making it light and balanced.
Lengths: 171, 180, 189
The right balance of skiability across a wide range of snow conditions, inbounds at a resort or set free in the backcountry. Great match topair up with an AT bindings for those wanting a light ski for touring but don’t want an actual AT ski. Just a head’s up...the 189 is a huge ski.
