Line Skis Blend (2014)
With its 100-mm waist, pronounced tip and tail rocker, camber underfoot and lightweight construction, the Blend is designed for all-mountain freestyle skiing with an emphasis on powder performance. Line's Freestyle All-Terrain collection includes three lightweight twin-tip models - Blend, Chronic and the new Future Spin - in waist widths ranging from 100 (Blend) down to 86 mm (Future Spin). They're built for soft-snow, all-mountain versatility, with a "progressive" (forward of traditional) mounting point. Many buyers, Line says, will center-mount them for ideal park performance. All models have camber underfoot for carvability with varying amounts of tip and tail rocker (more in the wider models, very little in the Future Spin) for easy-pivoting looseness. Line's new, lighter Maplelite Macro Block core blends dense maple underfoot for power and durability with lightweight aspen tip and tail for reduced swing-weight. ThinTip tips are extra thin and flexible for supple shock absorption and further weight savings. Metal-free Capwall construction combines light forgiving cap construction on top, resting on low sidewalls over the edges for solidity and grip. Line's Symmetric Flex is designed to enhance bi-directional versatility.
