Technical info:
Line want to prove that they can make more than just playful skis, and Sick Day is their candidate for serious big mountain adventures. As usual, they have a short turning radius that is extra short at the front and back, but here there is also long setback and taper in the back ski. It has a stiff tail and a soft tip. In addition, Sick Day has quite a lot of camber, combined with some rocker at both ends. The construction should in theory counter itself. The geometry has a dominant front ski that should oversteer in turning transitions and provide float in powder. However, the flex makes the back ski more prominent, and the rocker in the front ski neutralizes the sidecut.

On snow:
Sickday is a real allrounder, which floats smoothly on soft snow. In the groomed slopes it is a little heavy, and we would have liked to see more flexibility and better turning properties. We don´t think that the stability at speed is convincing. Maybe it is the stiff flex and a lot of sidecut in the back ski that disrupt the harmony. But if are you looking for a versatile ski that allows you to land a little in the back seat when you set out from a cliff, Sick Day might be the ski that saves your day.
