Line Blade Skis

The Line Blade is unlike any ski you've ever seen. That probably gets said a bit too much, but we're serious when we say this thing is different than most skis out there. Line has been known to come out with some zany and creative ski shapes over the years and this one is no exception. The Blade brings aspects from carving and freeride and blends them into a paradoxical puree of a ski that offers a unique on-snow experience. A full wood core gets beefed up with Line's Gas Pedal Metal. This metal skeleton allows for a smooth flex while increasing torsional stiffness, which is needed in such a wide carving ski. The deep sidecut, camber and a fairly flat tail all work in unison to generate a dynamic turn and steadfast edge grip for a pure carving experience. With that being said, the flex is forgiving enough to make the ski feel super playful and smeary if you want it to be. At 95 millimeters under the boot, the Blade has a freeride-forward chassis that allows you to do way more than just carve. The super wide shovel and tapered shape from tip to tail keep the front of the ski afloat and allows for a lot of lateral maneuverability. Overall, the Blade is a ski that places emphasis on the bare fundamentals of making a nice turn, but does it in a creative and fun way that offers much more than just a fun carving experience.

I’ve been looking at getting a pair of line blades and have a question about sizing. I am intrigued about the blades because I have been fantasizing about the idea of all mountain slalom skis for years. I want a pair of skis that can carve salmon turns all over the mountain and I’m curious if the 181 length will carve more like a of a slalom or GS ski. I’m 6’3” and 215 lbs so am concerned that the 176 won’t be enough ski for me. I usually like skis in the 187-192 length so am leaning towards the 181. That said, I already have enforcers with an ~18m radius that feel like an all mountain GS ski. Will the 181 blades feel enough like a slalom ski in comparison or should I look at the 176?
Thanks for the help!

HI Tanner!
I'd go 181. Still a very short arc. I'm 6'2 225 and just felt the 176 was on the short side.

I am fascinated with the Line Blade (181 cm.) I'm a big guy like Bob, but with a race, coach, instructor background, and I like skis that are very energetic and have a strong carving prowess. However, after reading a review by Blister I see that the mount point is -7 from True center, and most GS skis are within the -11.5 to-13 range rear of TC, and SL skis are just slightly forward of these mount parameters. Did you try the binding position at any other spot other than the rec mount line? I would be interested in how this skis would react to a -8.5 or -9 mount. I know that this is a fun carver, but i rarely ski switch so what would be the point of being so far forward? And at -8.5 from TC, this ski would be comparable to the mounts of most All Mtn. Freeride skis 102-108mm. wide in the waist. I like your reviews. but I wish you would vary the mount position to give the reader a wider perspective. Some of us are park rats and some are racers and ex-racers - everyone enjoys a different feel to a specific ski based on our style and technique. Thanks, I look forward to your input.

Hi David,

Interesting questions, but we only mounted these skis to test them at the recommended mount line. Mounting these more forward or back would certainly change the way they would perform. We just don't have any beta on different mount points at this time.
