Testers raved about the girthy-yet-light Kore 117. Its wide platform executed well in tight spaces, but really shined when it had room for big turns on soft snow. With the same innovative triaxial woven carbon layer, KOROYD, and karuba wood core with graphene-infused tips found in the rest of the Kore family, it remains lightweight but can drop the hammer. 

Strengths: Versatility, Quickness 

Weakness: Hard-Snow Integrity
