The Kore 117 ski is Head's widest model in the Kore range with a reasonable rocker profile that powers through different terrain with the strength of a high performance freeride ski for tons of stability at high speed. A lightweight construction that is built from a Karuba wood core that includes innovative components and technology to make it the most futuristic backcountry freeride ski available. The skis lightweight construction is reinforced by a Topless Tech top sheet that integrates a polyester fleece material, compared to a traditional top sheet, that is considerably light but uses a carbon triaxle weave that improves the skis torsional strength and responsiveness for increased edge hold. The Kore 117 series uses a Koroyd honeycomb shaped core material that is ultra light weight but strong and flexible to once again, reduce weight but build strength and stability. The combination of Koroyd with Graphene offers the best balance of lightweight materials while maintaining its structural integrity and performance. A similar construction and technology but more tuned for inbound resort skiing can be found in the Monster 88 which has been a popular model for chairlift accessed terrain with variable snow conditions.
