The LINE Sir Francis Bacon has been redesigned for the winter 2021 but retains its lightweight and playful construction that's made it so popular for so long, a new feature for this year is the convex base tech on the tip and tail which allows you to drift and butter through pow without sacrificing edge grip on hard pack.
Known for its versatility, the Sir Francis Bacon has now been bumped up to 107mm underfoot, meaning that it will have no problem floating and drifting in powder and soft snow conditions, as well as gliding over crud slush and variable conditions. For when your cruising more hard-packed snow on piste, a relatively tight sidecut radius of 16m also keeps the Bacon incredibly nimble for short sharp turns between park features, trees, or even moguls.
The Partly Cloudy Core is a new core type developed by LINE that combines lightweight paulownia wood with composite materials which maximise strength in the core while minimising weight, in fact the partly cloudy core offers the best strength to weight ratio of any core type in the LINE range. The medium-stiff flex of the bacon provides great stability whether you're charging steep backcountry lines or taking big landings in the park, which is easy thanks to the low swing weight created by LINE's early taper tip & tail shapes.
Reworked but still, a classic, Sir Francis Bacon from line skis is a winning combination of a wide-platform park ski, backcountry powder surfer, and all-mountain charger.
Full Sidewall - P-tex walls over the edges absorb vibration for a smooth and solid feel with incredible response
Early Rise - The tip rocker starts earlier in the ski to give effortless float in powder without the need to adjust your stance or sit back
Early Taper - The widest part of the ski has been brought further back from the tip to reduce hooking in powder and preventing tail drag
Partly Cloudy Core - The blend of lightweight woods used in LINE's trademarked Partly Cloudy Core produces the best strength to weight ratio of anything in their ski range
Symmetric Flex - The ski has the same flex pattern in front and behind the boot to give equal performance when skiing switch or regular
Fatty Base & Edge - 30% thicker base and edge dramatically increases tuning life and durability meaning you don't need to panic if you clip a rock in powder!
5Cut - 5 different sidecut radius are combined in one ski for intuitive control and unlimited turn shapes. This makes the ski super easy whether skiing slow or fast as different sidecut radius are in use
