Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis 2014

Eric Pollard's all mountain pro model, the Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis are a slightly narrower and more versatile version of the Mr. Pollard's Opus. Lighter, and with a more conservative rocker profile, the 108 mm waisted Sir Francis Bacon is made for skiers who have as much fun killing it on the groomed as they do in powder.
Rocker Type
Profile - 10 / 5 / 10 mm (Early Rise Tip / Camber / Early Rise Tail)
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.
 
Flex
Symmetric Flex™ - The same flex pattern ahead of and behind your boot handles terrain equally well riding forward or backward.
 
Sidecut
Early Taper™ - The widest point of sidecut starts tapering earlier to reduce drag and hooking in powder (both tip and tail).
 
5-Cut™ - 5 Different sizes of sidecut radius shapes are blended into one, for intuitive control & unlimited turn shapes.
 
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 172, 178, 184 and 190 cm Sir Francis Bacon Skis is 17.7 m
Shape
Thin Tip™ - Super thin core and sidewall in the tips are 100 grams lighter per pair for reduced swing weight and tip bounce.
 
Core
Maple Macro Block™ - 2 Full length maple stringers are surrounded by Aspen for lightweight durability. Core composition is 50% Aspen at the tips, 80% Maple underfoot
 
Sidewalls
Sidewall™ - Ultra high density polyethylene walls over the edges absorb vibrations for maximum durability with a smooth and solid feel.
 
Base
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.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Big 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.
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
  • 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: Medium
    Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • 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.
