Last year the Kore 99 Wd stole her spotlight, but this year the Kore 93 W got her due as testers heralded it as the All-Mountain category-defining ski. Still featuring Head’s innovative construction of graphene, KOROYD, and caruba wood, this ski delivers top-of-the-line performance all over the mountain without forcing you to work for it, making it easy, quick, and forgiving for ladies of all abilities. Set it, forget it, and just enjoy the ride.

STRENGTHS: Versatility, Playfulness

WEAKNESSES: Crud Performance, Flotation
