4D Fibercap™
4-Directions of fiberglass reinforcement around the core for durability and a super light & responsive feel.

SYMMETRIC FLEX™

Symmetric Flex™
The same ski flex in-front and behind your boot conforms to terrain for equally performance riding forward & backwards.

EARLY RISE™

Early Rise™
The rise in the tip starts earlier for effortlessly staying on top of the snow without needing to sit back.

LONGER ACTIVE EDGE™

Longer Active Edge™
20% longer sidecut edge length in contact with the snow than other skis in it's class for more grip & less slip!

EARLY TAPER™

REAL TWIN TIP™

Real Twin Tip™
Many skiers ski as much forward as backwards so we create some of our skis with equal tip and tail heights.

TIGERSNAKE™

Tigersnake™
An electrical conduit is woven into the core with control knobs on top, so the ski can become aggressive like a tiger, while maintaining natural flex ... like a snake!

    These skis are a great all mountain powder ski!
    They float in the powder and hold nice edges on harder snow, these are the best skis I have ever skied and absolutely love them. The only problems i have with them are the weight, they can be quite a load when you are hiking.

        Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty:

        I've only been skiing for a year, and just got these ski's and took them up on a powder day at mt bachelor, and absolutely love them. Edging is a bit more difficult, you really gotta dig your edges in, but overall off piste and in the trees these skis perform exceptionally well. They also fly. Going off jumps in the park and in the backcountry, you feel weightless. throwing big 180's and landing switch has never been easier. Im 20 yrs old, and only 5'1.5, these skis are perfect!

        Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty:

        This ski is so awesome. It is really good to make long turns on the groomers and and it shreds on the non groomers. This ski is really fun to play around in the moguls and amazing for dropping big cliffs. This ski has very good flotation in the powder. My very first day on them i loved the ski, it was so much fun to ski on! I recommend it to anyone that is interested in it! It was my best buy ever❗️

        this is a great ski for anyone that wants to charge hard on any kind of snow but isn't quite big enough for adult skis. i live on the east coast and they still work great most days when i'm not in powder.

          • Stomps Very Well

            Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty:

            It would be a mistake to not buy this ski! It is so good for everything its just insane! Best powder ski for kids on the market, no doubt about it. I was stomping 50+ foot cliffs so well i forgot i was on a kids ski. It is so durable and you can butter it no problem too. You can also spin and flip very easily. There is nothing that will even come close to a better powder ski for kids. This is the perfect ski for everything.

              Comments about Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty:

              I am 15 5'7", 140 lbs and got the 165s. I absolutely love these skis, and am so so glad that I bought them. I used them in 20" of fresh pow the first day i skied them, and they floated incredibly well, and i barely even had to work to make a turn in the deep. I also skied them on a day full of ice, crud, and groomers and park skiing, and they did better than my "all mountain/park" skis. I can ski any type of terrain in these ski's, and would absolutely buy them again.
