Part of the Freestyle All Terrain collection, the Blend is what it's name suggests: a ski built for a blend of applications-40 percent powder, 40 percent all-mountain, 20 percent park. For powder, it's got nice width plus rocker in both the tip and tail (4 mm over 20 cm; camber underfoot). It's a metal-free, maple-core ski with Line's Sidewall construction-the angled sidewalls are thick over the edge but thin below the topsheet, for durability and dampness.
It's still the best name for a powder ski in the business. But the new Bacon is a total redesign. It's designed by pro skier and Line athlete/designer/artist Eric Pollard, who made it narrower this year. It's intended to spend half its time in powder, the rest on typical frontside conditions, with an occasional park visit. It's a metal-free, wood-core construction with angled sidewalls, thick at the bottom over the edge, narrowing at the top. It's tapered tip and tail for a loose feel, and the tip is extra thin to make it supple and light.
Line has seen immense success from their versatile Prophet series, with widths ranging from 90 mm to 130mm. Previously, the width options jumped from 100- 130mm underfoot, which left a big gap.
Enter the Prophet 115. With P-cut technology, this ski seamlessly travels from groomers to powder. Early rise tip and tail allow easy turn initiation (read: they’re easier to ski), and help you float when it’s deep. A metal-structured core adds strength and stability.
