2012 Line Skis Range and Review

2824

I think the Line Prophet 90 is the best ski I’ve ever owned. It’s built like a wide GS ski, with a twin tip for versatility. It can carve on everything but boilerplate, charges full speed off-piste, and only starts to feel narrow once the pow reaches your boot tops.

We ski a lot of soft snow in Australia, whether it’s corn, slush, fresh or not so fresh, and this is the ultimate weapon for 90% of our conditions.

I bought this ski undemo-ed and sight unseen on the recommendation of my good mate Nick Franklin-Jones of Line & K2 Australia. This was back in 2008, and I’ve got a pair of the 2012 ones ready to be mounted up for this year. I’m looking forward to it and will definitely post a review here.

Line has been really growing since their acquisition by K2 and I asked Nick to do a short review of the skis he likes best in their range:

Your concerns for going wider than 90mm will be forgotten after your first turn. The subtle Early Rise provides extra float in pow & easier turn initiation on the hard pack while it’s Capwall construction provide the high speed stability, edge hold & lively responsive feel normally only found on narrower skis.
