Skis Line Sakana 2021
About Line Sakana 2021 skis
The award-winning LINE Sakana is a versatile all-mountain ski like no other on the market. Winning Ski Of The Year from Powder Magazine in 2019, the Sakana is the best ski for all-mountain carving, slashing, and just generally having a great time. Utilizing a unique swallowtail shape and camber through the majority of the ski, the Sakana is made to rail turns on hard snow, but an early rise tip and wide shovel (nose) allow them to surf through deeper snow with ease. A ski that floats on fresh, and carves better than your Dad on Thanksgiving dinner, experience the Sakana.
Featuring three sizes in 166, 174, and 181, there's a Sakana available for everyone, male or female, everyone can reap the benefits of this innovative ski. When choosing your size, we recommend sizing down from what you would normally ski, as a longer effective edge makes these ski longer than the numbers read.
Directional flex The softer tip floats & initiates turns easily while the stiffer tail provides power, stability & high speed control.
5CUT™ Multi-Radius Sidecut
5 cut radius FIVE different radiuses are blended into the ski’s sidecut. The result? A wide variety of turn shapes and an intuitive feel.
Sidewall Ultra-High Density Polyethylene vertical walls over the edges absorb vibrations and provide powerful energy transmission.
Swallow tail 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. An eye-catcher for sure in the liftline but it's not just eye-candy, Eric Pollard pushed for this design after experiencing its advantages in surfing and snowboard designs. The swallowtail design is as important as what it is as what it's not! The absence of material in the tail drastically reduces weight while the shape maintains a long effective edge for arching turns and staying in control. In powder, the tail drops you back in the snow lifting your tips for ample flotation while maintaining a neutral skiing stance so you're not in the backseat trying to stay afloat. For those concerned about durability have no fear, the tail is reinforced with titanal so stay in once piece.
CARBON FLAX TAPE
Carbon flax tape Carbon Stringers offset by Flax Taping create added stiffness without the pingy, deflective properties of Carbon.
Early rise The 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 when rolled over on edge.
