    Evolution of KORE

    From time to time you may find yourself with the back against the wall. Doubts building up, but at the same time a panting flame is lit. Like the great poet Eminem once said, “Success is my only m********n' option, failure's not.” And with a similar credo the team within HEAD Ski division went to work. The task ahead was not a small one though. And based on previous attempts a fresh start was clearly the only option.

    Frame Of Mind with Sam Kuch

    Time is indeed relative, Einstein proved it if nothing else, but how much can our experience of time differ? Sheila Street, mother of Sam Kuch, states that her son can slow time down. How that works, we lack the brains to grasp, even more to explain. It is however clear to us that watching Sam Kuch ski is a sacred experience. The impossible and the completely natural intertwined. The realisation that some things are just meant to happen, that some people are meant to do exactly what they’re doing at that given moment. You can envy them or just surrender, lean back and enjoy the ride.

    Three HEAD athletes in Freeride World Tour overall top three.

    It does appear as some skiers have a special deal with the universe. A relation with gravity based on a different set of rules than the rest of us. Is this why Sam Kuch floated up to the freeriding stratosphere on a star-studded wagon? Or is he just a damn good skier. Maybe the best?

    The Bec giveth and the Bec taketh away. Never has an overall 2nd place in the Freeride World Tour been so bittersweet as for the Norwegian Olympic mogul skier gone freeride queen, Hedvig Wessel. And few bronze medals so unanticipated and celebrated as Carl Regnér’s third spot in the overall ski men rankings. Snowboarder Cody Bramwell was also seemingly pleased with his trophy for the 3rd place in the overall snowboard category. But let’s take it back for a moment and set the scene.
