Head uses a couple of tricks to make the Kore 105 lighter and more supple than a ski this wide has any business being. The core is lightened by using a honeycomb of Koroyd composite surrounded by wood, and it’s reinforced with the amazing thin-yet-strong graphene laminate. Testers agreed, though, that it’s still a charger—surprisingly strong on edge and stable at speed for a ski so light. “Very balanced and versatile, with a smooth glide that belies its quickness,” said Gleason.

Strengths: Stability at Speed, Flotation, Crud Performance
