Since Head first introduced its freeride-focused Kore series, it has been received with overwhelming stoke and that energy continues with its brand-new offering, the Kore 97 W. Deceivingly strong for how light it is, the Kore 97 W really shines off-piste. The karuba/poplar wood core is sandwiched between triaxial-woven carbon for an incredibly light-yet-responsive ride and graphene is fused in the rockered tip and tail to reduce swing weight without sacrificing stability to plow through variable conditions. Because of the focus on weight savings, this ski is just begging to explore the backcountry but she has no problem navigating the resort, too. Ladies looking for a lighter touring ski that hasn’t lost its backbone, the Kore 97 is your one-way ticket to Shredsville.

FREESKIER tester thoughts:

“These skis feel like they are part of you, connecting turns with ease and responsiveness.”

“Directional ski that doesn’t sacrifice play. Great in all conditions. Quick in the bumps, too.”
