Strenghts:
May be good at driving in their correct conditions, but in that pisto I had the opportunity to test them I did not really agree with the skis.

Weaknesses:
The ski was fluttery and worried while feeling dead and boring. The Brazilian wood core is definitely vibration, but it does a bit too well. Wearing a pair of HEAD Kore in the relatively hard piste was far from what can be described with the word here. Sure, the ski is probably not built for the conditions prevailing in the Vemdalen, but even when I found the piles of loose snow, the ski performed badly. I was amazed and thoughtful whether I was driving the skis wrongly. Had I totally lost it as a skier?

The other turn gave the same answer. The skis are dead and give a bad response, playfulness is not there and the team draws a border in class with the Berlin wall between me and the snow. When I searched for an edge in the skis they turned out and the trials for sharp turns became a wreck. I move on to the next test tent with the feeling that I just went alpine on a pair of big rubbers.

Here again, it will be clarified that the conditions in Vemdalen are far from the conditions encountered by a freighter in, for example, the Alps. If it was just the conditions in the hill, my ride style, the preparation of the demo slides or a combination of its three that did not match, it's hard to say, but I'm not convinced of HEAD Core's greatness as a ski model. Therefore read this review with this in the back of the page.

Summary:
HEAD Kore is a skid that goes well when it's soft and messy and you want to stand the turn without feeling how the substrate propagates through the skid up in your body.

Strenghts:
Lättåkt
Good edge grip
Witty
Slightly Curved
Good on cutting, here it stands out from other skis on the same width
Playful
stylish
Easy
Stable

Weaknesses:
Being a bit hard to get rid of the hardest evidence, I think KORE 93 would have done better in this situation

Summary:
Unbelievably fun and easy going skiing. Already in the first turn we took each other. As mentioned, I experienced the lightweight but still stable at higher speeds. Fits most skiers who want a ski, pads, play and do not get rid of when it's hard. Perfect skiing for the Alps!

Riding style: therapist / powder

Head Kore 105 was the most appreciated ski during this year's edition of Powder Week. With a unique core of lightweight cariban wood, the ski offers a surprising strength in a flexible package. This allows you to ski hard in any kind of terrain. With a small camber beneath the foot and rocks in the tip and tail, it enters the swings both calmly and comfortably. What is different from the other skis is the lightweight construction, despite its lightweight weight of 1755 grams per skid, it feels like nothing can stop Kore 105.
