Line Sir Francis Bacon Skis - Men's:
The new Sir Francis Bacon is a refined, everyday ski that delivers an even better all-mountain ride – the kind of ride that made this ski famous in the first place. Sir Bacon was a scientific revolutionary, and this award-winning ski is LINE athlete Eric Pollard’s contribution to the movement – a narrower waist for a lighter, speedier ride, with five radii blended into the overall sidecut for intuitive control. As Eric describes it, “The Sir Francis Bacon floats through milky snow, carves the hardpack, and has a buttery personality."
