All-mountain or freeride width – the lucky winner will have a choice between the 94mm and 104mm version
Fancy a belting new pair of skis delivered to your door? Actually, fancy choosing between two belting new pairs of skis? Our friends at Line have come up with the rather brilliant idea of giving away a pair of their Sick Days (a perennial Fall-Line favourite, in case you haven’t committed the past few years’ Gear Guide text to memory) – and asking the winner to choose between the 104mm and the 94mm model.
Enter here, and learn more about Line’s Sick Day skis below:
The Sick Day series (which also comes in 114mm and 88mm underfoot) has been totally redesigned for 2017/18. These skis feature an Aspenlite core, Magic Finger filaments running from tip to tail and rather stylish graphics (including the base). Both models come in 172, 179 and 186cm lengths.
The 104mm model (dimensions 137-104-121, retail price £440), which belongs in Fall- Line’s freeride category, is built for exploring all over the mountain. It has the right blend of rocker and camber for floating, bouncing or ripping through all types of ungroomed snow, plus ample edge hold for delivering a mean ride on hardpack when required.
The Line Sick Day 104s throw a mean powder turn too!
The 94mm model (dimensions: 131-94-117, retail price £430), which sits in Fall-line’s all-mountain category, was named best ski on test this year by co-editor Yolanda. At the Ski Test in Austria in March, testers are really only meant to take each ski for a few runs, but Yolanda slyly wangled several extra laps on the Sick Day 94, so much did she love it.
“The ski was springy, lively and manoeuvrable in powder among the trees; it took me smoothly through crud and it felt stable tearing down chopped-up piste at speed,” she wrote in last month’s Gear Guide issue (get it HERE in either print or digital version!).
Need we say more? We think that has it covered – apart from to mention that Line is throwing in a pair of Get Up poles, worth £35, too.
