LINE PESCADO SKIS 2023
Pickup currently unavailable
It's a known fact that pretty much every cool innovation in ski design over the last 40 years or so was inspired by snowboarding. So when the current hotness in snowboard design is "volume shifted" boards with short lengths, super fat noses, and swallow tails, Line figured, what the heck let's try it out. And for that, we thank them. It turns out that just like twin tips and fat skis, volume-shifted skis are pretty awesome. The Line Pescado Skis have by now taken their place in the ranks of legendary ski shapes. They are built to ride shorter than your normal size, but more than makeup for it with a super fat 125 mm waist and even fatter shovels. The rearwards mount point and swallow tails help the ski sit back in powder and float like a speedboat through the water. They're a revelation in powder, unlocking previously unseen styles of playful, directional, deep snow riding.
- Early Rise – Tip, and tail lift away from the snow to bring the contact points closer to the center of the ski. This increases a ski's lift in deep snow and allows it to engage more quickly on a hardpack.
- Directional Flex – The softer tip floats and initiates turns easily while the stiffer tail provides power, stability, and high-speed control.
- 5-Cut Geometry – Five different radiuses are blended into the ski's sidecut. The result? A wide variety of turn shapes and an intuitive feel.
- Swallowtail – A dramatic tail knockout de-couples the farthest reaches of the effective edge while simultaneously forcing the tail of the ski down in soft snow. The result is a ski that can be ridden at shorter lengths without sacrificing performance.
- Partly Cloudy – A blend of lightweight Paulownia and Maple creating the best strength-to-weight ratio of Line's offerings.
- Sidewall Construction – Ultra-high-density Polyethylene vertical walls over the edges absorb vibrations and provide powerful energy transmission.
- Sintered 1.1 mm Base – Sintered bases reduce friction against the snow allowing for more speed, and more durability due to the high-density material they're crafted from.
