Head Kore 99 W 19/20

Graphene-KOROYD-Carbon Sandwich Cap Construction
This sandwich construction cap has been developed with the most sophisticated material known to man. It uses Graphene, KOROYD and CARBON and is guaranteed to be the lightest ski in the world. Although it is light it does not compromise on performance. 

Karuba Light Weight Wood Core
Karuba wood core is what give the ski its pop and personality. It’s the perfect ratio of density and weight. The advantages of combinding Karuba, Koroyd and Graphene enhance the ski, making it light and balanced.

Graphene is the strongest, lightest material known to man. We fuse it into the KORE’s tip and tail to make it lighter and more responsive in deep snow.

Koroyd is a honeycomp shaped material at the heart of the KORE. It’s super-light and incredibly elastic. It’s strong and flexible and what makes the KORE special.

Topless Tech
The revolutionary construction has been topped with a polyester fleece instead of a standard top-sheet. This Topless Tech construction results in the lightest ski in its category. The triaxle weave of its carbon layer provides additional torsional rigidity for supreme responsiveness and solid edge hold.

Head Kore 99 W

 Head Kore 99 W Women's All-Mountain Ski

Last season&#;s Best in Test ski didn’t defend her title this year, but testers still consider the Kore 99 W a “unicorn” ski—a charger so balanced it ranked No. 1 in Forgiveness and No. 3 in Stability at Speed. Or, as one tester translates: “Likes an aggressive skier but can get down with a Backseat Betty.” This ski’s versatility comes down to the construction of lightweight caruba wood, graphene, and KOROYD, which makes it effortless yet gives it enough backbone to tackle anything the mountain throws at it. 

Robinson: “They can do no wrong, take no prisoners, and do the hard work for you.”

STRENGTHS: Forgiveness, Stability at Speed

WEAKNESSES: Flotation, Crud Performance

[Note: Our review was conducted on the 18/19 Kore 99, which was not changed for 19/20 or 20/21, apart from graphics.]


For the 17/18 season, Head introduced the Kore series, a line of dedicated inbounds skis that were some of the lightest we’d tested. And now for 18/19, Head is introducing a new model, the Kore 99, which slots in between the Kore 93 and , and which enters a competitive category of ~mm-underfoot all-mountain skis.

Shape / Rocker Profile

Compared to the Kore 93 and , the shape and rocker profile of the Kore 99 look most similar to the Kore And, interestingly, the Kore 99 actually has a tiny bit less tip and tail rocker than the narrower Kore 93 we tested.

In terms of shape, the Kore 99 has a touch more tip taper than the Kore 93, but that difference is minimal. The Kore 99 does not have as much taper as the (which we’re personally happy about).

So, despite the increase in width from the Kore 93, the new Kore 99’s shape and rocker profile looks like it could maintain much of the 93’s firm snow performance.

Flex Pattern

Hand flexing the Kore 99, here’s how we’d describe its flex pattern:

In Front of Toe Piece:
Underfoot: 10
Behind Heel Piece
Tails: (almost 10)

Like the other Kore skis we’ve tested, the Kore 99 is very stiff. It feels a bit stiffer than the 93, , and , though all of those skis flex pretty similarly.

Compared to the cm Head Monster 98, the Kore 99’s shovels feel very similar (i.e., they are some of the stiffest we’ve ever flexed), and the Kore 99’s tails actually feel stiffer than the Monster 98’s.


When the Kore series was first released, the main surprise / story was just how light they were, and how Head was still marketing them as skis to be used in the resort. The Kore 99 does still follow this trend, but at around grams for the cm version, it’s not coming in at a ridiculously low weight. (Though the more you think of the Kore 99 as a replacement for the Head Monster 98 — which comes in at & grams in the cm length — the Kore 99 still looks like a significant shift.)

Here are some of our measured weights (per ski in grams) for a few other notable skis

Some Questions / Things We’re Curious about

(1) The main question we have is which other Kore ski (i.e. the 93 or ) will the Kore 99 feel most similar to?

(2) In line with that, will the Kore 99 feel more firm-snow oriented or soft-snow oriented?

(3) With such a stiff flex and fairly low weight, how punishing will the Kore 99 feel in difficult snow, or when you get off your game?

Bottom Line (For Now)

The Head Kore 99 is yet another interesting addition to the ~mm all-mountain ski category. We’re actually getting on the Kore 99 in just a few minutes here in Telluride, so stay tuned for updates.

Head Kore 99 Skis w Attack 13 GW Bindings

Splitting the difference between the Kore 93 and the Kore , the HEAD Kore 99 sit right in the middle and provide a new dimension for expert level all-mountain skis. This is the "Goldilocks" version of the Kore series, not too wide, not too narrow, but just right. The 99mm waist width is awesome for skiers who like to ski the whole mountain in any and all conditions.

The Kore 99 is a lightweight ski that can accomplish some serious missions. From moguls and trees to steeps and chutes, the Head Kore 99 is a virtual Swiss-Army Knife type ski that can rip up any and all terrain. For a ski without metal, it sure is stable and strong. Starting with Karuba wood core, the Kore 99 has Graphene, Koroyd, and Carbon added to the ski. These materials combine to replace the metal layering that is found in some of the Kore 99's competitors. The end result is that you get the performance of metal but without the weight.

Head's other innovative design concept is the Topless Tech that virtually eliminates a topsheet and the related weight. Head has really outdone themselves to reduce weight and make the skis as quick as possible. From edge to edge, the Kore 99 is a lot quicker than the width would lead you to believe. As light as it is, you'd expect it to get bounced around in the chop, but it is a lot more stable than that. The Head Kore 99 skis are the perfect choice for all-mountain expert skiers.

Thom's Review-Head Kore 99 Skis balletscontemporains.com

Head’s Kore collection covers widths from 87 to , and towards the middle of that lineup is the versatile Like the rest of the Kore models, this ski saw a number of changes for this season, including a revised construction, even lighter weight, and a smaller (7cm) gap between lengths. In testing the latest variation, it struck us as a solid 50/50 on- and off-trail ski: it’s still impressively powerful yet light, but it’s not a standout in terms of stability or dampening on hardpack. That said, if you like to pop in and out of the trees, prioritize a nimble feel, and have enough soft snow to justify the wider set-up, it’s a compelling package. Below we outline our experiences with the Kore To see how it stacks up to the competition, see our article on the best all-mountain skis.

Table of Contents

Hardpack Performance

The Head Kore 99’s mix of lightness and power give it unique characteristics on hardpack. Unlike a heavier and very damp design like Nordica’s Enforcer , the Kore is lively, reacts quickly to input, and has a nimble feel that matches its lightweight build. That said, there’s still quite a bit of stiffness underfoot, and it’s not something we’d recommend for intermediates (or even strong intermediates) that like to take it easy and slarve their way down the hill. It takes some muscle to really lay into a turn and get on edge, and if you’re not pushing into the front of your boots, the ski’s rigid tail with relatively limited rocker has a tendency to grab and punish poor technique. On the flipside, powerful skiers that love a highly responsive ride will be rewarded with lots of energy and pop in between turns (quick and medium-width turns are the ski’s specialty), and the Kore’s great off-trail manners (more on this below) encourage a creative riding style.Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (skiing fast on groomer)

As I touched on above, the Kore 99 does have its downsides in firm conditions. Specifically, I found it more skittish and prone to getting knocked around than the narrower Kore During wider, high-speed sweepers on bumpy snow, the 99 was just a touch less fun, not as smooth, and harder to trust than the As such, we recommend the narrower variation or one of the many strong and wide models in the all-mountain market for those that spend more than half their time on trail (including the aforementioned Enforcer , Volkl’s M6 Mantra, and others).Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (wide turn)

Soft Snow (Powder) Performance

In contrast to my experiences on hardpack, the Kore 99 really came to life when I ventured off trail and into my local hill’s sidecountry. Here, that lightning-quick personality shone through: the ski felt completely in control in everything from moderate powder (around in. over a solid base) to just a light dusting in the trees. The moderate rocker profile and superlight Graphene tip and tail do a great job with floatation—the Kore definitely punches above its width in this regard—and the ski felt smooth and relatively easy to handle in just about all conditions. The only notable exception would be at absolute top speed through a wide and open bowl, where I’d prefer a little more dampening (like what you get with the Nordica Enforcer ).Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (holding skis)

And as the terrain gets tighter, the difference between the nimble Kore and a heavier option like Volkl’s M6 Mantra really becomes apparent. It’s less fatiguing, easy to flick around and pivot in technical spots, and frankly more enjoyable to ride in these conditions. All told, the Kore 99 was a little more soft-snow biased than I expected given the popularity of these wider, all-mountain models, but for the right user, it’s an excellent option. And that “right” user group can certainly include advanced to expert backcountry skiers that want a stiffer set-up.Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (turning in powder)

Performance in the Bumps

Given its relatively wide dimensions, the Kore 99 won’t be at the top of any mogul skier’s list. However, its responsiveness and limited swing weight are a nice combination for dipping into the trees and through bumps. Similar to its hardpack performance, it’ll take a strong, advanced-level rider to make the whole experience enjoyable, but there’s a lot of power in the tip and tail to drive the ski, and its flickable nature really shines in tight spots. All that said, the narrower Kore 93 is still the better performer here thanks to its reduced mass. And if you’re like most bump skiers and want a little more shock absorption and compliance, you may want to consider a softer option like the Blizzard Rustler 10 or Salomon’s QST Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (tight turn)

Build Quality and Durability

The past-generation Kore was prone to showing premature wear, but Head attempted to address that with this latest model by rounding off the top of the ski. With this chamfered build, the ski should be less susceptible to chipping. That said, the polyester fleece topsheet (Head calls it “topless tech,” although it still technically has a topsheet) is still thin and pretty prone to showing scratches. To be clear, it’s an improvement over the prior model, but cosmetic wear will still happen faster than with other all-mountain designs. But importantly, from a build quality standpoint, there’s absolutely nothing to complain about: you get high-end materials throughout, including a lightweight combination of karuba and poplar for the core, two sheets of carbon fiber (one above and one below the wood), and the light yet stiff Graphene tip and tail. And in person, the ski looks fantastic, with clean lines and a decidedly sleek and high-end feel.Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (closeup of topsheet)

Fit and Sizing

With the latest Head Kore 99, the ski is now available in a wider range of sizes with only 7 centimeters separating lengths (from to cm). These smaller increments make it much easier to find an ideal match for your height and riding style. For reference, I’m 5’9” and pounds, and I found the centimeter length to be a great all-around choice for me. Finally, it’s worth noting that each length has a unique turn radius that gets longer as ski length increases, which should help riders tune their turning style a bit more easily.Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (standing next to skis)

Other Versions of the Head Kore

We put the millimeter Kore through its paces for this review, and there are a number of other widths in the lineup depending on your riding style and expected terrain. As I mentioned above, the Kore 93 strikes me as the more versatile all-mountain design: it’s less skittish than the 99 and smoother and easier to trust during high-speed turns in choppy conditions, and the shorter turn radius and nimbler feel encourage quicker movement in the bumps (for more, see our in-depth Kore 93 review). Other options in the collection include an millimeter model for resort use on firm conditions, as well as wider , , and models for powder hounds and committed backcountry-goers. And on the women’s side, widths include 85, 91, 97, and milimeter models.Head Kore 93 all-mountain ski (closeup of skis)

What We Like

  • The Kore 99 is an excellent performer in powder: it’s quick, smooth and easy to control in a range of conditions, and punches above its width in terms of flotation.
  • Light but powerful construction rewards advanced pilots with good pop and energy between turns on hardpack.
  • Chamfered design makes the topsheet less susceptible to premature chipping, and the ski is well-built with high-end materials throughout.
  • Available in a wide range of lengths and widths to fit various riding styles and terrain types.

What We Don’t

  • Stiff design requires strong input to control—especially on hardpack and in the bumps—and is best suited for advanced to expert riders.
  • Noticeably less stable and harder to maneuver than the narrower Kore 93 on firm snow, especially at speed. 
  • Polyester fleece topsheet still is thin and prone to showing scratches and cosmetic wear.

The Competition

Head’s Kore 99 is a fun and versatile entry to the all-mountain ski market with a nice balance of on- and off-trail performance. As we mentioned above, Nordica’s Enforcer is a consistent best seller in this width category and for good reason. Most notably, it’s a standout on hardpack thanks to a damp, smooth, and very powerful construction. The differences with the Kore 99 are pretty clear: The Nordica easily wins out for those that like high levels of stability for bombing down runs and connecting wide, GS-style sweepers; on the flipside, those that prioritize fun without sacrificing much in the way of stiffness will probably lean toward the nimbler Kore. And if you want to throw on a pair of tech bindings, the Head is the clear choice.Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (from side while skiing)

Next up is Volkl’s M6 Mantra, which was also updated for the season and boasts a similar personality as the Enforcer above. Similar to the Nordica, the Mantra prefers speed, power, control, and wider turns over the quick handling and superb responsiveness of the Kore. In contrast to the Head, the Volkl rips on groomers but isn’t as maneuverable in tighter spaces, and we’ve found the Head to be the more fun and playful option in powder. In the end, we’d break it down as follows: for hard chargers that like to ski fast, the Mantra is a great match; for those that prefer more well-rounded performance for having fun both on- and off-piste, go with the Kore. 

Switching to a wider and more playful model, Blizzard’s Rustler 10 is a consistent favorite. It’s light like the Kore but goes about its business in a different way: it has more rocker, is great for slarving, and is easier to manage at slower speeds on hardpack. The biggest tradeoff is that you miss out on the power and stiffness of the Kore, especially for advanced and expert riders. Both excel off trail and can be flicked around, but the Kore will be more rewarding for a hard-charging pilot, while the Rustler is less demanding and easier to get along with (it’s the much better choice for intermediates).Head Kore 99 all-mountain ski (bootpacking with skis)

Finally, like the Rustler above, Salomon’s QST 98 is a less serious alternative to the Kore. It has a softer front end and more tip and tail rocker than the Head, which translates to easier turn initiation and a smoother ride in general. All told, it’s a ski that has a natural and easy-to-trust feel in a wide range of conditions, although (similar to the Rustler again) you’re not getting top-end stability and can expect some decent tip flap at high speed. If you prioritize quickness, especially in soft snow, the Kore has its appeal. Otherwise, I prefer the friendlier overall personality of the QST—and it doesn't hurt that it comes in around $ less.
