Head Kore 93 review 2020
PROSKILAB™ reviewers' comments
The Kore 93 from Head, with its 93 mm waist, is positioned between the two All-Mountain Proskilab categories.
It was successfully reviewed last year in "All-Mountain 50/50", where it received a "Best Ski 2019" award. The arrival of the Kore 99 in this category encourages us to review its little brother in the "All-Mountain 70/30" category more aimed at the piste, where it does not let us down.
The waist width of the Kore 93 allows it to take advantage of its competitors off-piste. It achieved the highest possible score in difficult snow, powder buoyancy and powder handling. The quality of the behaviour in choppy snow was stressed by the reviewers.
On the piste, its behaviour is beyond reproach. The Kore 93, "stable and balancing", "easy and gentle", "solid underfoot " shows real qualities and great homogeneity. It is comfortable in all situations and all types of handling. Wider and more typical of freeride than its counterparts in this category, it is also less agile on packed snow, mainly due to a slightly slower trigger. On the other hand, it excels as soon as the terrain becomes less smooth thanks to its remarkable abilities to absorb terrain irregularities.
This season, the Kore 93 from Head confirms the qualities already detected last year. It is one of the few reference skis that occupy the top of the segment in these All-Mountain categories. It is an excellent choice for intermediate to expert skiers who want a very homogeneous and versatile ski.
- Very good off-piste behaviour
- Good buoyancy in powder
- Exceptional behaviour in choppy snow
- Ease pivoting
- Transition between all snow types, absorption of terrain
- Reduced agility on-piste, less reactive trigger

Who's it for?
The KORE 93 is the answer to imperfect snow. Choppy, deep or too hard-packed snow and bumps cannot withstand this ski. It's perfect under all circumstances. Its construction in Graphene and Karuba allows for weight gain and lightness without losing any skiability. #TOTHEKORE
