With the Blade Optic collection Line is stepping up their directional freeride game. Pulling notes from their successful Vision an Blade models these skis are made to perform on the firmest corduroy to the deepest pow. The Blade Optic 96 is for the speed-loving skier looking for a confidence-inspiring ski that can charge on groomers but also gives a nice and smooth ride in chopped-up snow and variable conditions.
Rocker Camber Rocker The ski is easy to turn thanks to a rise in both the tip and the tail. Due to the camber under the foot, the waist of the ski provides grip on harder snow. Skis with this type of profile like to be skied from a more centred stance..
Woodcore The core consists of specifically selected wood types that are laminated in different compositions into a solid core. This gives the designers control over all the characteristics of the ski.
Directional Shape The tip in this ski is softer than the tail. This makes it easy to turn, while the stiffer tail provides stability and control when steering the turn.
A ski with Cap construction has a topsheet that extends over the edge of the ski to the steel edge. Skis with Cap construction are generally lightweight, more economical and offer good damage protection of the topsheet.
Multi Radius Sidecut The Multi radius Sidecut makes for an all-around versatile ski. The radius is between that of a Giant Slalom and Slalom ski and allows you to ski both short and long turns with the same ski.
