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.
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.
Symmetric Flex™ - The same flex pattern ahead of and behind your boot handles terrain equally well riding forward or backward.
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
Thin Tip™ - Super thin core and sidewall in the tips are 100 grams lighter per pair for reduced swing weight and tip bounce.
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
Sidewall™ - Ultra high density polyethylene walls over the edges absorb vibrations for maximum durability with a smooth and solid feel.
Fatty™ Base - 30% Thicker Base: 1.7 mm thick base for increased durability
Fatty™ Edge - 30% Thicker edge: 2 mm x 2.5 mm edge dramatically increases durability and tuning life.
