Technical info:
Line has worked to reduce the weight of freeride skis, and this test pair is almost as light as the lightest touring skis. Otherwise there is a lot of elliptical sidecut, which is typical for Line. This implies that the sidecut is more abrupt towards the tips. A very short setback gives a difference between tip and tail of only 3 mm. A soft back ski with a high tail.

On snow:
A completely new ski from Line and Eric Pollard. This is a ski that clearly stands out in this test. It is considerably more front-mounted and has a shorter sidecut radius than most of the other skis in the test, and you can really feel this in your feet. It is very easy to maneuverer and it is stable in the air. It doesn´t like high speed that much. However, it performs very well in the woods, especially if you have a couple of tricks up your sleeve. The most playful ski in the test.
