The all-new Kore Tour series from Head brings everything the brand has learnt from their Kore range of freeride skis, and applied it to a range that comes in at an impressively low weight; all while still upholding decent levels of downhill performance.
The range loosely follows the Kore range, with just a few differences in shaping. The main difference, as you can expect, is in the construction of these skis. Let’s take a look under the topsheet to see what Head has been up to.
Head Kore Tour 93 Construction
The Kore Tour 93 has been built with weight savings in mind. This begins with a lightweight hybrid core construction made from Karuba and Poplar. This mix gives you the poppy and lightweight attributes of Karuba, while Poplar improves the overall strength and damping of the ski.
Sandwiching this core is two sheets of carbon laminates which work to bring snappy and responsive power. In an effort to bring in some more reinforcement towards the tips and tails (where you’re most likely to see deflection and chatter, leading to a loss of control), Head has added Graphene inserts to bring a little more mass away from the centre of the ski leading to improved stability.
