Product Info

Line Skis Afterbang Shorty Skis 2012: Let’s face it, traditional kids skis can’t hold up to the abuse that kids are giving them in the park. The Lins Skis Afterbang Shorty Skis deliver the bomb proof Skate Deck™ construction of their bigger brothers but in smaller, slightly softer sizes at a killer price. Before the Afterbang Shorty, you never had this much pop and durability, and what? Butter Zones™ in a kids ski? Sign me up!

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 6-ply horizontally laminated Maple veneers for shock and durability. It uses 50% less plastic than a sidewall ski and 60% less wood waste.

Extruded Fatty Base & Edges are easy to repair.

Flex

6-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.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Comments about Line Skis Afterbang Shorty Skis 2012:

i used these skis very hard but i thought they could take it due to the bombproof construction. i was wrong, after less than 2 months with them I snapped the 144 size in half, weighing only 85 pounds! i don't know if any ski could take the abuse or if its just that the afterbang was poorly constructed . ANd they are also very stiff and heavy but with just normal skiing they are fun

Comments about Line Skis Afterbang Shorty Skis 2012:

I ski 3 times a week for the whole winter and these have held up decently except for there is a big chip (i don't even know what happened) by the binding that goes down to the fibreglass. I am a lighter rider so these were sort of stiff but still very playful and fun. For me they are awesome on jumps and rails due to the medium flex. Super poppy and lightweight which surprised me because they were wood. Overall a fun, poppy and playful park ski which is good for a beginner all the way to a professional! And a very good price to. I will always love LINE skis

      My son who ski's 4-5 times a week has run these all season, great bomb proof solid ski. Maybe the people who say the construction is bad really abused the ski, I do not see how these could snap in two as one reviewer claims. My son skied a few comps this year as well. Very solid under foot. They will splinter at the sides as skis bang against eachother.

        Comments about Line Skis Afterbang Shorty Skis 2012:

        I'm a Line guy, so I purchased two pairs of the Shortys for my son, a park rat, to go along with my Prophets and the Mrs.'s Celebrity's. Line markets the Shorty's as "bombproof" and just a smaller version of the Afterbangs, so it seemed like a good call. On both pairs the rear binding ripped out on stomps in less than a full season & I had them mounted at two different shops! The techs say the core is rotted on one pair and the other might be repairable with coil inserts. My kid charges, but not holding up for even a season is pretty weak. Beware...

        Comments about Line Skis Afterbang Shorty Skis 2012:

        I bought these skis last season... Skied for half the season, injured myself, so I was out for the other half. Got back on them this season for the first time since April. I was so stoked to get back on these skis because I love them for park. I don't weigh much more than 110 and apparently I was "skiing to hard" on them? All of a sudden, my back binding rips out of my ski. Right out. Ski went flying and I had to walk down the mountain, bummed and broken ski in hand. Pretty irritated that the skis I thought would be good for a few seasons are destroyed now. They are straight wood on the top of the ski which is poor design. Really unhappy because I love the look and feel of Line skis!
