Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis - Boy's 2014

The Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis is mini-sized version of Eric Pollard's pro model the Sir Francis Bacon. The shorty is made with all the same great Line technology including Early Rise™and Early Taper™ for extra float with an Aspen Macro Block™ core to lighten the ski for smaller riders. The SFB Shorty is one of the best full-on powder skis for skiers of smaller stature.
Rocker Type
Early Rise™ - The rise in the tip starts early for effortless float in soft snow without sitting back and easier turn initiation in any conditions.
 
Profile - 6/1/6 mm (Early Rise Tip / Camber / Early Rise Tail)
Flex
Symmetric Flex™ - The same flex pattern ahead of and behind your boot handles terrain equally well riding forward or backward.
 
Sidecut
5-Cut™ - 5 Different sizes of sidecut radius shapes are blended into one, for intuitive control & unlimited turn shapes.
 
Early Taper™ - The widest point of sidecut starts tapering earlier to reduce drag and hooking in powder (both tip and tail).
 
Longer Active Edge™ - Get more grip and less slip! A 20% longer contact length while turning than others in its class!
 
Average Radius - The average turning radius of the 145, 155 and 165 cm Line Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis is 14 m.
Shape
Real Twin Tip™ - Many skiers ski as much forward as backwards so we create some of our skis with equal tip and tail heights.
 
Core
Aspen Macro Block™ - 100% Aspen for the lightest, most responsive ski possible
 
Laminates
4D Fibercap™ - 4-Directions of fiberglass reinforcement around the core for durability and a super light and responsive feel
 
Base
Extruded Fatty™ Base - 30% Thicker base: 1.7 mm thick base for increased durability
 
Edges
Fatty™ Edge - 30% Thicker edge: 2 mm x 2.5 mm edge dramatically increases durability and tuning life.
 
Binding Compatibility
Bindings not included
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker
    Rocker/Camber/Rocker skis have the playfulness and float of a rockered ski as will as the added edge hold of a cambered ski. The contact points on skis with this profile are closer towards the middle of the ski than a fully cambered ski, but still not underfoot. The cambered midsection provides a longer effective edge on hardpack, increasing edge hold and stability, while the rockered tip and tail provide floatation in deeper snow and allow the ski to initiate and release from turns easier.
  • Turning Radius: Short
    Short
    < 16 m radius is best for carving.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
