Line Blend 2017 | Ski Review

The Line Blend is a fat freestyle ski that pretty much eliminates the need for separate powder and park skis; the Blend does it all. Designed for skiing switch as much as it is for skiing forwards, it’ll see you through slushy park days, cloudy powder days, days where the weather doesn’t really know what it’s doing and many more kinds of days in between. If you want a freestyle ski that does everything, look no further.

There are a few things that make the Blend particularly suited to freestyle; it has what Line call a Symmetric FiveCut, essentially a blend of different sidecuts merged into one, as well as a symmetrical flex pattern, so it skis the same switch as is does regular. It also has a 30% thicker base and edges for added durability underfoot (which is great when you ride a lot of rails), combined with lightly rockered, super-thin and super-flexible tips and tails. They’re designed to make learning to butter way more fun, and skiing powder nice and floaty.

So if you like skiing powder, jumping off side hits, park days and any other situation where you can get creative on your skis, the Line Blend is for you. It’s a one-ski-quiver that’ll see you through a whole winter in the Alps, no problem.
