Tester's Review

“What a terrifically fun ski,” proclaimed one tester, clearly excited by the new Sick Day 125’s large and varied skill set. This ski levitates in powder, knits through the trees, and carves an impressive trench into groomed snow for a 125-millimeter fatty. Tip and tail taper makes for an effortless steering experience. This ski has a huge bandwidth, intermediate to expert. As one tester noted, it’s “the perfect cure for the Deep Daze.”

Skiing's Notes:
With its 125-mm waist width, the Sick Day 125 is the widest ski in Line's new Sick Day collection, which aims for ease of use and accessibility across ability levels in deep, deeper and deepest powder. There are three models, ranging in width from a powder-specific 125 mm down to a more versatile 95 mm, with pronounced rocker for maximum flotation on the 125 and progressively less on narrower models for more responsive mixed-snow performance. With slight twin-tips and directional sidecut taper and waisting, they're meant to go forward down the mountain. (Switch riders and powder jibbers might be better served by a true-twin Opus or Sir Francis Bacon.) Aggressive tip taper also gives the Sick Days a looser feel in the snow than the similarly wide Opus or Bacon, with less active edge in the snow and enhanced maneuverability and newschool smeariness. Line builds the Sick Days for light, lively performance. There's no metal, and Line's ThinTip technology keeps the tip profile slender and supple for shock absorption and reduced swing weight. Meanwhile, Line's new, lighter Maplelite Macro Block core blends dense maple underfoot for power and durability with lightweight aspen tip and tail for further reduction of swing-weight. Metal-free Capwall construction combines light forgiving cap construction on top, resting on low sidewalls over the edges for solidity and grip. The colorful and highly imaginative graphics are the work of Toronto based artist Derek Muscat.
