They say

Kore is a ski that strips away everything that could drag you down. We’re pretty proud of it. Welcome to the Kore!

We say

One of the strong traits of the Kore is its unique lightweight construction, it’s a ski that immediately feels easy to use with low effort required to get into the turn and make adjustments. That lighter weight really helps in deeper conditions where it feels very maneuverable and has instant float when needed. Another upside to this ski is that it has strong abilities on hardpack where it has surprisingly high levels of grip for such a light ski, it feels strong, direct and stable when skied at high speeds in long arcs

Tester Comments

Pete Davison
Loves to be pushed hard, has great grip on ice and crud. Easy to pivot in the deep and trees
Mark Jones
Surprising amount of grip for such a light, wide ski
