Do you find yourself hanging with the older kids at the mountain most of the time, skiing bigger lines and chasing deeper turns? Then the Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis are for you. A scaled down (but certainly not watered down) version of the full sized Bacon, the Bacon Shorty is designed to give fearless groms and young adults more confidence in deep snow. Line's Fatty Base and Edge™ make sure that the ski can take some abuse, meaning it just might become the only hand me down that the little brother gets excited about.
Early Rise™ The rise in the tip and tail starts earlier, resulting in easy turn initiation and effortless float in soft snow.
Rocker Profile 6 / 1 / 6 mm (Early Rise / Camber / Early Rise)
Symmetric Flex™ The same flex pattern in front and behind your boot conforms to terrain equally riding forward & backwards.
5-Cut™ 5 different sized sidecut radius shapes are blended into one, for intuitive control and unlimited turn shapes
Sidecut Average 14.0 m
Early Taper™ The widest point of sidecut starts tapering earlier in the tip and tail to reduce tail drag and hooking in powder.
Aspen Macroblock™ 100% Aspen for the lightest, most nimble feel.
4D Fibercap™ 4-directions of fiberglass reinforcement around the core for durability and a super light & responsive feel.
Fatty Base™ 30% thicker base; 1.7mm thick base dramatically increases durability & tuning life.
Fatty Edge™ 30% thicker edges; 2mm wide x 2.5mm high for better rail resistance and tuning.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis - Boys' 2016:
I love this ski. I am a 12 boy who just wants to shred. And this ski lets me do that. Jumps, rails, crud, bumps and any other thing you can think of this ski will do. I live on the east coast and the weather has been bad. But all and all this ski handled it very well. The one problem I have is that it dose not have good top sheet durability. They scratch very easily. Other wise I think they are the best ski for a 5' 5' 140 pound kid.
