Technical info:
Line has had open core walls on a number of skis for several years. The difference here is that the core is horizontally laminated with many layers, in the same way as a skateboard. What's new here is that they have taken down the corner and made a cap-like construction that remind us a little of the K-Werks skis from Völkl. Symmetrical construction, zero setback.

On snow:
Afterbang comes in a new version this season, and it certainly feels lighter on the foot. They respond well and excel on rails and jumps, just like before. At high speed though, or on hard, uneven snow, the skis tend to get a little unstable. In spite of this, Afterbang is a model that fulfilled its potential and become a very good allround park ski. If you need a ski to crush the competition in slopestyle and big-jump, you should find a slightly stiffer ski. For play and fun, Afterbang delivers.

Pros:
Leken, relativt lett, nok popp og nok stødighet til å mestre det meste i parken.

Cons:
I stor fart og i de dypeste landingene er den ikke like stødig som enkelte andre ski.
