Technical info:
This is the heaviest ski in the category and among the longest in the test. The sidecut radius is short and even throughout, just like Kore 105 that won last year’s test. Little taper and a long and pronounced sidecut gives wide tips. The rocker is moderate and it has a fairly even flex, with a somewhat stiffer tail. Softer than average at the waist.

On snow:
Solid freeride ski that is too heavy to compete with the best models in this test. The stability at speed is superb, at the same time as it´s very versatile on the descent. It performs well in both short and big turns, at low and high speed. These features are due to the evenly distributed flex, a large amount of sidecut and high weight. Kore 93 is therefore a good choice for ski touring freeriders who prefer shorter ascents.
