Line Sir Francis Bacon Skis 2020

Hi, I'm Thom, I just got done skiing the all-new Line Sir Francis Bacon. Oh and it comes in white, and they look tight…and we just rhymed. By shaping the tips and tails in a convex format, they act like boats on water. It has that flatter, grippier tail and back-mounted stance, so you can push those pretty much as hard as you like. Even in a bigger size, they don't really hold up to charging too well, but that isn't what the Bacon is meant to be about.

This ski is super easy to flick, float around, drift, smear, slide, pretty much anything you'd want it to do on that freestyle vibe, it's super loose, super playful. . If you miss the older Sir Francis Bacons, this one is for you. The overall playful feel is fantastic, and skiers with a wide range of skills and backgrounds will love the performance and dampness of the 2020 Line Sir Francis Bacon Skis. In all, they are a very unique ski for doing tricks on, opening lots of doors but they do also have a couple of drawbacks.

What's New from Line for 2020

It's a great ski for that advanced to expert level skier who wants something that's just really playful, fantastic in the powder and light on your feet. My edges held up ok despite skiing rails every day of the 12 days that I rode the Sir Francis Bacon. With a bunch of different technologies and ideas built in, the 2020 Line Sir Francis Bacon has a lot going on. On rails, they were super nice for surface swaps and presses, but I found them a bit loose on 5050s because the fat tips would knock together and mess with my lock. The king of powder skiing, Eric Pollard, has spent years trying to figure out how to make a ski that performs more like a surfboard and the Line Sir Francis Bacon 2020 achieves that with a convex tip and tail. They have a relatively average amount of rocker for a ski in the category, with plenty of camber underfoot.

Sure they are more directional, with a more centered stance required, but the new Bacon is essentially an evolution of that ski, built for doing tricks. And they are fun, very fun in the park. The early taper is fairly minimal, leaving you a long running length when the ski is put on edge. They have a convex tip and tail to it, so it makes smearing and buttering around real easy, still rocker tip and tail as well, so gettingup on the soft stuff and getting over the crud is much easier as well. When the pow gets tracked out and heavy, the Bacon can struggle a bit more. The 190 would be better for him due to his size and aggressiveness, but for test purposes, the 184 was just fine. While mainly intended for fresh snow use, I noticed that it made turn initiation a lot easier on-trail as well.

I still want to be able to tackle a groomed black diamond as fast as I can ski it. A Symmetrical Flex Pattern makes for easy switch skiing and landings, and a -20 setback stance can keep you on your toes for any riding style. I had a blast taking them just about everywhere. A 16m average turn radius in the 184 length is the result. The name of the game here is playfulness and freedom.

These are definitely more of a hard snow performer than some jibby all-mountain skis, such as the Vishnu Wide and J Skis Vacation. However, I did get delams on the same side of both the tips which you can see in the above photo. Bumped up to 107mm underfoot, and featuring drift-inducing Convex Base Tech, the Sir Francis Bacon swerves and butters through pow without sacrificing bite on hardpack and blown out chop. I would love to spend some more time on the shorter length but even in the 184 I ultimately had a blast. To pay using a credit card please call us toll free. All-new and primed to change your conception of what's possible on snow, the Sir Francis Bacon opens up new lanes of creative skiing. It's symmetrical flex, pretty centered stance so switch riding's great as well.
