Product Info

A true quiver crusher for the man whose playground is the entire mountain, the Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis are equally at home hitting kickers in the backcountry as they are laying trenches on the groomed. If your idea of a good day involves spending the morning hunting freshies, afternoons hucking cliffs, and wrapping up the day with some cool down laps on the groomers, then the Bacons are most definitely the skis for you.

    Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Skis 2015:

    Yesterday was my first day on the Bacon's and I left the mountain super excited about this ski! The past couple of years, the majority of my skiing has been done on the Line Opus and the Nordica Patron so it was really refreshing to get on a little bit smaller ski.

    The ski seemed to really hold a turn well at high speeds, was lively, full of energy and fairly quick edge to edge. The conditions did not warrant a lot of "powder" type skiing but I am confident that this ski would perform in deeper snow as well. All and all, really, really stoked on the product.

        If you want a playful, all-mountain ski, this is it. I don't have many days on these yet but they're good at nearly anything. Add a charging ski to the quiver and you're good to go.
