Creative Carving Ski

See all pictures

The Blade takes Line’s incredibly playful and liberated style of skiing and translates it for those who want to keep their skis on the ground. Imagine the punk rock attitude of their park series translated as a carver that flips from edge to edge like a coin.

Similar to their Sakana and Pescado swallowtails, the Blade is built to turn. But it’s more capable of doing so through sloppy snow and hardpack.

 

Their frontside destroyer status is achieved through an undeniably alien shape. Bulging out from a serviceable 95mm waist all the way to a bulbous 154mm tip, they look more like a canoe oar than a ski.

Combined with conservative rocker and minimal tail taper, the Blade true to fashion has a whole lot of edge to it, and is built more for firm snow than the Sakana or Pescado also listed.
