By now, the Sir Francis Bacon needs no introduction. These skis have inspired generations of fun-loving all-mountain freestyle skis, and generations of fun-loving all-mountain skiers. They feature a silky smooth flex pattern that's just stiff enough to hold up to explosive resort skiing and just soft enough to absolutely butter the popcorn out of. But for riders that are a bit to small to find their size in the standard Bacon, the Line Skis Sir Francis Bacon Shorty Skis provide all that playful all-mountain goodness in a smaller package.
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 – 6mm Tip / 1mm Camber / 6mm Tail
Symmetric Flex™ – The same flex pattern in front and behind your boot conforms to terrain equally riding forward & backward.
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.
Aspen Core – 100% Aspen wood for the lightest, most nimble feel.
4D Fibercap Construction – 4 directions of fiberglass are woven across the top of the core for durability without unnecessary weight.
Stance Back from Center – 30.6 mm
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
