Line Sir Francis Bacon Powder Skis 2012: This year Sir Francis Bacon hit the gym in the off season and came back a little stronger and a bit thinner. The Sir Francis Bacon shows its new shape off at 140-108-136mm sticking to the Pollard ideal of almost symmetrical sidecut but shedding 7mm at the waist. The idea was to add a bit of versatility and quickness to the Bacon, and it worked perfectly. Mellow Early Rise and Early Taper Tip and Tail give the Sir Francis Bacon the same predictable feel when snow gets deep, choppy, or both but still retains a surprising amount of hard pack prowess and power. Line's Thin Tip serves to amplify all these feelings by taking 50 grams out of the tip and tail for reduced swing weight, aiding the quick feel of the Bacon. Now all of this seems to read that the Sir Francis Bacon is a directional charger, but we all know if Pollard designed a ski it has to hold firm to freestyle ideals. To keep and ultra playful feel Line uses symmetrical flex and G-Cut geometry to keep the tips lofty and ski smear happy while remaining a switch skiing monster. For good measure Line puts a Sintered base under the Sir Francis Bacon so speed should never be an issue when teeing up backcountry booters. The Sir Francis Bacon really is a one ski quiver for off piste skiers looking for a playful but powerful ski to make every turn the best they have ever had. If that isn't enough for you watch our video reviews and count the smiles on reviewers faces, it was a team favorite.

completely redesigned for 2012, this ski has all the tools you need to bring freestyle to the powder. stiffer flex and narrower waist make this ski better in variable conditions, but the revamped early rise make sure that you can still float when it's deep and stomp tricks in the pow.
If you are looking for a ski for pow but want a ski that is a little more playful this is the best choice from butters to BC jumps this is the best choice!!
this ski is super light. Wide enough to float on powder and still ski it everyday not matter what the conditions. My favorite ski from demo days.
