Charge hard through the steep and deep and conquer that no-fall zone. It's time to put the fun back in gravity with the Line Skis Influence Skis. A real powder ski that rips through variable snow and hard-pack alike with serious power, dampness and stability all while retaining agility. The pop and snap found in the Influence just isn't there in other big-mountain skis.

        Comments about Line Skis Influence Skis 2014:

        Me: 5'6"; 140lb. Mt Hood Meadows; 5in new; 25in in the last three days. 25-30deg. Looking for a ski to replace my Rossi S7(178), which I've been on for the last four seasons. Great ski in the powder, but I want something more stable at speed.

        Demoed this ski along side the Atomic Automatic and Sick Day 110. All 3 were an improvement over my S7's. I thought the influence 115 might be a bit too much ski for me, however it ended up being my favorite by far. It felt incredibly smooth going fast through powder and heavy crud. It inspired confidence to take jumps and little cliff drops. Just as quick and maneuverable through the trees as the others(this surprised me). Able to make loose surfy turns, but not as loose as the Automatic. On groomers it railed, but took more work than the others to get up on edge. Overall this ski made skiing easier and put a smile on my face.

          Comments about Line Skis Influence Skis 2014:

          I just finished an epic day at Whistler on the Influence 115's. 2 ft of fresh pow on top of a soft base from earlier in the week. These skis have a really nice surfy feel in the trees. Very nice pop when riding through chopped up lines, and tons of backbone to point them and charge big lines with no chatter or flop from the tips or tails. I love these skis.
