The Line Skis Sakana Skis could carve a detailed nativity scene on the face of a pumpkin. The distinctive swallowtail design means they punch well above their weight in powder, while a remarkably tight radius helps crack out the kind of quick, snappy carving turns that remind you why you fell in love with skiing in the first place. Make room in the quiver for the Sakanas, you won't be sorry.
Early Rise™ – Tip and tail lift away from the snow to bring the contact points closer to the center of the ski. This increases a ski's lift in deep snow and allows it to engage more quickly on hardpack.
Rocker Profile – 10mm Tip / 4mm Camber / 0mm Tail
Directional Flex™ – The softer tip floats and initiates turns easily while the stiffer tail provides power, stability and high speed control.
5-Cut™ – Five different radiuses are blended into the ski's sidecut. The result? A wide variety of turn shapes and an intuitive feel.
Swallowtail – A dramatic tail knockout de-couples the farthest reaches of the effective edge while simultaneously forcing the tail of the ski down in soft snow. The result is a ski that can be ridden at shorter lengths without sacrificing performance.
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™ – Super thin core & sidewall in the tips are 100 grams lighter per pair for reduced swing weight & tip bounce.
Core - Partly Cloudy™ – A blend of lightweight Paulownia and Maple creating the best strength to weight ratio of Line's offerings.
Carbon Flax Tape – Carbon stringers offset by Flax taping create added stiffness without the pingy, deflective properties of carbon.
Sidewall Construction – Ultra-high density Polyethylene vertical walls over the edges to absorb vibrations and provide powerful energy transmission.
Sintered 1.3 mm Base – Sintered bases reduce friction against the snow allowing for more speed, and more durability due to the high-density material they're crafted from.
Edges - 1.7 mm x 2 mm
Graphics - Hardcap TPU
