Product Info

Line Skis Afterbang Skis 2012: Four years of development have resulted in this innovative and best-selling freestyle destroyer. The Line Skis Afterbang Skis bring you the same technology you’ve grown to love in your skate deck with 7-ply Maple straight to the sidewall. Throw in Butter Zones™ and Carbon Ollieband™ and you have innovative jib-specific technologies no other ski possesses. Butters, nollies, rail transfers; bang it all out with the Line Skis Afterbang Skis.

Product Details

Shape

True camber from tip to tail for powerful pop and control

Symmetric Geometry is a 5-radius sidecut with the same tight radius in the tip and tail for initiating turns easily riding forward and backwards.

Construction

Skate Deck™ construction is built of 7-ply horizontally laminated Maple veneers for shock and durability. It uses 50% less plastic than a sidewall ski and 60% less wood waste.

Carbon Ollieband™ consists of tip to tail carbon-fiber stringers laminated into the core for more energy and pop

Extruded Fatty Base & Edges are durable and easy to repair

Flex

7-ply Maple veneer is horizontally laminated like a skate deck for uncompromised strength and snap.

Butter Zones™: top veneers end at a specific point in front and behind the binding to create a distinct hinge point for smooth nose/tail presses and buttering without restricting ski performance

Symmetric Flex has the same flex in front and behind your boot for the same feel riding forward or backwards.

Dimensions

18m @ 177cm, 115/88/115 (all sizes)

It's still the summer so I can't wait to use them... I heard about the top sheet being chippy and all and when I first got mine in the mail, the top sheet was already coming off in multiple places... I told the dude, he sent me a return label so I didn't have to pay return shipping, and got my new ones in the mail as soon as I had the busted ones on the way there. Top sheet looks like it will still flake off after some thrashing so I'll probably just repaint it with art from Kill The Yeti and spray a clear coat on top. Cain't wait to put these badnesses into action... I bet they rule. can't beat prices and service from evo. super rad.

I have used these ski's probably 10-15 times already this year and they are beat. They do not last very long. The first weekend with them, parts of the top design started to smudge away and huge chunks came off the sides. Now, people who ask me about them tell me they don't believe me when i say i got them this year. Although the ski's are beat up, they still ride very nice. The Carbon Ollie Bang or something like that allows for huge pop just like a skateboard which makes getting onto rails and boxes much much easier. If you can afford to buy this ski at the beginning or ending of every season I would say go for it. If however, you cannot afford to do that, and lets face it, not many of us can, try to find a more durable, longer lasting ski.

Comments about Line Skis Afterbang Skis 2012:

I really like these skis. They are fun, plain and simple. Some people have had durability issues but most of that has been ironed out and line will likely make things right if you are unfortunate enough to have that happen to you. Most of it is inflicted by the skier anyway...

            I just got these in and it's September so I can't really rate them yet. they look rad. the topsheet was pieced when I got hte first pair, emailed the dude at evo, got a new pair swift than a mug. they look cool but the topsheet does look like it will shred apart a little but skiing isn't about what your sticks look like standing still. I'm probably gonna respray them with Kill The Yeti graphics anyway. We'll see what they can do in a few months.
