Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis - Youth 2013

The Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis feature the same technology as the adult ski that Eric Pollard rides in a pint-sized package. For kids that are good enough to smash powder with the bigger guys but need a ski their size, the Sir Francis Bacon Shorty skis are ready to rip. A true powder ski with a 107mm waist that is kid-tested and Pollard-approved. Your mind will be blown with the Bacon Shorty’s powerful solid wood core, Early Rise™ and Early Taper™ in the tip and tail, and a playful 4D Fibercap™ construction.
Shape
Early Taper™ - The widest point of sidecut starts tapering earlier in the tip to reduce tail drag and hooking in powder.
 
Rocker Type
Profile - 6-1-6mm (Early Rise Tip/Camber/Early Rise Tail)
Early Rise™ - The rise in the tip and tail starts earlier for effortlessly staying on top of the snow without needing to sit back and easier turn initiation.
 
Flex
Symmetric Flex™ - The same flex pattern in-front and behind your boot conforms to terrain equally riding forward and backwards.
 
Sidecut
5 Cut™ - 5 different sizes of sidecut radius shapes are blended into one, for intuitive control and unlimited turn shapes.
 
Core
Aspen Macro Block™ - 2 full length Maple stringers surrounded by Aspen for the best of both worlds.
 
Laminates
4D Fibercap Construction - 3 directions of fiberglass reinforcement around the core create durability and a super light and responsive feel.
Base
Fatty Extruded Base and Edge™ - 30% thicker base and edge dramatically increases durability and tuning life.
Graphics
Eric Pollard’s unmatched style transitions from snow to the canvas, and especially to Line’s skis.
**Please note that base colors will alternate and may not arrive exactly as pictured.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Specs

  • Terrain: Powder
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • 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.
