Product Info

For 2016, the addition of a fourth ski to Line's freeride lineup has led to some tweaks and upgrades to the ubiquitous Sir Francis Bacon. The Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis have emerged from the lab with a slightly slimmed down profile and a crazy light Cloud Core™ of vertically laminated balsa and flax fibers. Having lost weight, the Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis are in the best shape of their lives, with an even more playful and nimble feel than before, yet still managing to maintain their effortless float when the going gets deep. A true all-mountain, all-conditions weapon, the redesigned Sir Francis Bacons quite simply make any type of skiing a whole lot more fun!

Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis 2016:

Historically a go-to all-mountain ski for freestyle-minded skiers, the "SFB" had gone unchanged for three seasons, until now. The redesigned Bacon is a bit narrower, lighter, and noticeably stiffer (especially its tips & tails) than its predecessor, though it's still very energetic, poppy and playful. The ski feels quite comfortable on rails (despite its waist width) and is very nimble in the air, though its near-center mount, light weight, and tight sidecut radius can make it feel a bit twitchy in variable conditions. This isn't to say it can't be skied hard all around the mountain, but at times you'll need to work on staying light on your feet and work with terrain to keep the ride smooth. The Bacon's stiffer flex can be difficult to work, too, so there are better freestyle-oriented, all-mountain options if you're into easy presses and butters.

    Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis 2016:

    Resigned for the 2016 model year this is one of the biggest changes to this go to skis since it came out. This is the 3 pair of Sir Francis Bacons I've owned and in someways the best. It has a very different feel than previous model years, feeling much lighter and more nimble. It did take me a bit of getting used to as you have to be much lighter on your feet and much more neutral. Overall a really great, really versatile ski that lives up to the Sir Francis Bacon heritage, just in a new reinvented body.
