2013 Line Prophet Ski Review

Snappy, quick and light, the Line Prophet skis let you explore to your heart’s content.
•Built for days that take you all over the mountain, the Line Prophet Series skis excel on variable terrain, and they’ll hold their own on powder days
•Cap construction on top of skis and sidewalls over edges blends light responsiveness with the durability and solid feel of sidewalls
•Die-cut metal laminate enhances edge-grip under foot and increases torsional responsiveness in the tips
•Skis stiffen progressively from tip to tail, resulting in easy flotation, powerful acceleration out of turns and increased stability
•Very subtle rockered tips makes it easy to start turns on hardpack and helps flotation in deep snow
•Geometry of skis incorporates 5 different turn radii to create effortless turn initiation with solid edge hold and responsive exits
•Directional twin?-tip design slightly favors skiing forward
•Increased the thickness of a standard base and edges 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
•Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo
•Line Prophet Series require bindings with wide brakes
