Based on the success of the Pescado, the Line Skis Sakana Skis are swallow tail rippers for the shallower days. Designed to carve up the corduroy, the Sakana's short length, big shovel, and tight turn radius allow it turn over on a dime, and the long camber section throughout the ski gives it a ton of rebound out of each turn. But just like with it's big brother, the unique shape can't help but lend itself to surfy deep snow excellence. It's not often that one ski is so fun to ride both on the deepest and the shallowest days of the year, but the Sakana is here to your defy expectations.
Early Rise™ – Tip and tail lift away from the snow to bring the contact points closer to the center of the ski. This increases a ski's lift in deep snow and allows it to engage more quickly on hardpack.
Rocker Profile – 10mm Tip / 4mm Camber / 0mm Tail
Directional Flex – The softer tip floats and initiates turns easily while the stiffer tail provides power, stability and high speed control.
5-Cut™ Geometry – Five different radiuses are blended into the ski's sidecut. The result? A wide variety of turn shapes and an intuitive feel.
Swallowtail – A dramatic tail knockout de-couples the farthest reaches of the effective edge while simultaneously forcing the tail of the ski down in soft snow. The result is a ski that can be ridden at shorter lengths without sacrificing performance.
Partly Cloudy™ – A blend of lightweight Paulownia and Maple creating the best strength to weight ratio of Line's offerings.
Carbon Flax Tape – Carbon Stringers offset by Flax Taping create added stiffness without the pingy, deflective properties of Carbon.
Sidewall Construction – Ultra-high density Polyethylene vertical walls over the edges to absorb vibrations and provide powerful energy transmission.
Sintered 1.3 mm Base – Sintered bases reduce friction against the snow allowing for more speed, and more durability due to the high-density material they're crafted from.
2.1mm x 2mm
Stance Back from Center – 80.5 mm
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
