Line Mr. Pollard's Opus Skis - Men's - 2012/2013 - $419.83

Versatile and tough, the Line Mr. Pollard's Opus skis are designed to create ear-to-ear grins in backcountry powder. Designed by skier, artist and filmmaker Eric Pollard, the Mr. Pollard's Opus skis ride high in the pow and let you turn the backcountry into your own personal terrain park. Core consists of light and strong maple wood stringers surrounded by aspen wood to provide power, stability and long-lasting responsiveness. Symmetrical flex pattern in the tip and tail allows responsive riding forward or backward. Tip and tail rocker floats high in backcountry powder whether skiing forward or switch; relatively low rise planes through powder instead of plowing up and over. Geometry of skis incorporates 5 different turn radii to create effortless turn initiation with solid edge hold and responsive exits. Early Taper(TM) places the widest points of the tip and tail closer to the center of the ski, reducing tail drag and hooking in powder. You'll notice the grippy feel of these skis on hardpack thanks to the extended length of the edges. Thin core and sidewall in the tips reduce weight and make them easier to control. P-tex plastic sidewalls isolate vibrations, offering high-end damping characteristics. Steel edges seamlessly wrap around the entire tip, delivering superior carving and long-lasting performance. Increasing the thickness of a standard base and edge adds significant durability and impact resistance, and it lets you tune your skis many times throughout the season. High-quality sintered base retains wax and glides easily over snow. Base or topsheet color may vary from online photo. Requires bindings with wide brakes. - $419.83
