Imagine dropping your entire quiver of skis into an industrial strength blender and hitting the blend button, and the well balanced smoothie that came out would be the Line Blend Ski. This tasty concoction is one part all mountain shredder and two parts freeride slayer, with a distinct aftertaste of park and pipe prowess. The Maple Macroblock core consists of two strong and powerful maple stringers complemented by light and poppy aspen to give you the power to point it straight out of chutes and the nimbleness to pivot through trees. The early rise tip and 100mm waist help you float through deep blower and cruise over chopped crud like it's not even there. When it's time to lay things on edge, the traditional underfoot camber and underfoot sidewalls keep your turns powerful and precise, but the hybrid Capwall construction makes sure the Blend stays plenty playful in the park, too.To eliminate the chatter associated with tip rocker, the Blend's been outfitted with Line's ThinTip technology, which reduces the weight of the tip to dampen vibration for a smoother, more consistent ride and easier turn initiation. It also rocks a fully symmetrical flex pattern for easy, predictable switch riding, and Line's signature 5 Cut, which uses different sidecuts along the length of the ski for smooth turns of all shapes and sizes. It's tough, too, with Fatty base and edges that that can take seasons of abuse without disintegrating.
