Looking for a new instrument to rip through powder, huck across the mountain and do it all with a smile? The Line Sir Francis Bacon skis offer agility that stands up to anything you throw at them.

  • Ideal for advanced skiers who love fresh powder, the Bacons are also stiff enough to responsively handle variable terrain and big moves in the pipe
  • Redesigned by skier, artist and filmmaker Eric Pollard, the Line Sir Francis Bacon skis are his personal choice for versatility and fun
  • Maple Macroblock core consists of light and strong maple wood to provide power, stability and long-lasting responsiveness
  • Symmetric Flex pattern in the tip and tail allows responsive riding forward or backward
  • Tip and tail rocker floats high in backcountry powder whether skiing forward or switch
  • G-Cut Geometry incorporates 5 different turn radii, with the tightest of the 5 radii in the tail of ski for predictable, controlled exits
  • Early Taper places the widest points of the tip and tail closer to the center of the ski, reducing tail drag and hooking in powder
  • Thin core and sidewall in the tips of the skis reduce weight and make them easier to control
  • ABS sidewalls isolate vibrations, offering high-end damping characteristics
  • Steel edges seamlessly wrap around the entire tip, delivering superior carving and long-lasting performance
  • Doubling the thickness of a standard base and edge adds significant durability and impact resistance, and it lets you tune your skis many times throughout the season
  • High-quality sintered base retains wax and glides easily over snow
  • Line recommends the Sir Francis Bacon skis for 50% powder, 40% all-mountain and 10% park-and-pipe skiing
  • Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
  • Requires bindings with wide brakes
