Most skis out there are designed to suit one type of skier. Some come in directional shapes for those with a racing background, others feature crazy sidecuts, thick waists, and heavy rocker profiles for slaying the megadeep. The Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis are designed for a third type of skier: those who like to have fun. If your day consists of smiling, high-fiving with the boys, seeking out new pow stashes, party shredding the blown-out windbuff, and even spinning a lap or two through the park, this is the ski for you. The Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis are designed for fun whether you're a seasoned all-mountain ripper or are getting your toes wet in that west coast cement for the first time. Party on, have fun, and keep your tips up on the all-mountain weapon known as the Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis.
Early Rise™ The rise of the tip and tail begin earlier as the ski profile moves away from center, making for easier turn initiation and helping to get the skis up on plane more quickly. This also means effortless float in softer snow.
Rocker Profile 9 mm Tip / 3 mm Camber / 9 mm Tail
Medium Flex Smooth, predictable flex for progressing riders and experts alike.
Symmetric Flex™ The same flex pattern in front and behind your boot conforms to terrain equally riding forward and backwards.
5-Cut™ 5 different sized sidecut radius shapes are blended into one, for intuitive control and unlimited turn shapes.
Early Taper™ The widest part of the sidecut begins tapering earlier in the tip and tail which reduces tail hook ups in powder.
Thin Tip™ Tip and Tail Super thin core & sidewall in the tips are 100 grams lighter per pair for reduced swing weight & tip bounce.
Nearly Symmetrical Designed to ski equally well forwards and backwards, without sacrificing float in deep pow.
Partly Cloudy A blend of lightweight wood creating the best strength-to-weight ratio in Line's offerings.
Sidewall Ultra high density polyethylene walls over the edges absorb vibrations for maximum durability for a smooth, stable feel.
Sintered 1.2 mm Base
1.7 x 2 mm Edges

Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis 2017:
I did my research before purchasing these beautifully crafted planks, as they are wider waists then I have previously skied on the East coast of New England, and it was the best decision I have made on a ski purchase yet. If you are the type of skier who wants to have fun and absolutely shred the whole mountain, charging through powda, chowda, groomers, ripping it up through the trees, and sending it off booters in the park, its not a question to get these puppies on your feet and have the best time of your life.
