Primed to change your conception of what’s possible on snow, the Sir Francis Bacon opens up new lanes of creative skiing. With its 107 mm waist and Convex Base™ Tech, the Sir Francis Bacon swerves and butters through pow without sacrificing edge grip on hardpack and blown out chop. The Bacon offers a stable yet playful feel no matter the snow condition.
An all-mountain freestyle/powder ski for intermediate to expert level riders. Shape, design, profile and construction have been designed to deliver the best performance in powder. At the same time, it is playful enough for freestyle riding in the backcountry, no matter if you drop cliffs, jump kickers or land switch in powder. But it also won't let you down if you carve down the slopes.
This ski comes with a directional twin shape, the nose is a few millimetres wider than the tail with a central binding position. Thus, the ski offers the same riding characteristics forward and switch. However, due to the slightly wider nose, you get a bit more float in soft snow.
The profile of this ski is basically a classic Camber with a slight Early Rise in tip and tail. The result is a fun and responsive ski that turns on the spot and is forgiving, even after difficult landings. Just like the shape of a spoon, the Convex Base™ technology lifts the contact points of the nose and the tail off the snow to reduce hang-ups and increase the float in pow. Without compromising stability, pop or grip on hard snow.
The soft/medium flex makes the ski very flexible, perfect for butter tricks and tweaks while giving you enough stability for a controlled ride.
The Partly Cloudy Core is a lightweight full wood Paulownia/Maple core offering the very best strength to weight ratio. The 30 % thicker Fatty Base & Edge™, is a 2.2 mm wide x 2.5 mm high edge and a 1.7 mm thick base. This dramatically increases durability and tuning life of these skis.
#morefunner - do we need to say more? Line took the freeski market by storm as early as 1995, picking up on the desire among skiers to simply have more fun. They saw the need for twin tip skis, and set about making it a reality. They have been on top of their game since day one and it comes as no surprise that they are backed up by one of the most star-spangled freeride and freestyle teams on the market.
