2022 Line Sick Day 88 Skis
Line Sick Day 88 Skis
We don't care what anyone else says, carving groomers is sick too. The Line Sick Day 88 is the narrowest offering in the Sick Day collection and is designed to rip of the front side of the resort in a playful and energetic fashion. A lot of all mountain skis of this width feature heavy laminates that take away from the ski's maneuverability and playfulness and can sometimes make the ski feel dead or lifeless. In the case of the Sick Day 88, Line keeps things light and snappy by building this ski with their Aspenlite Core. The wood core helps to add stabilization but it also provides a lot of responsiveness and rebound for a snappy feel as you exit a turn. A Capwall construction is also used in this ski which means there is Sidewall in the center of the ski and a cap construction out in the tips and the tails. This hybrid construction gives you plenty of edge grip where it's needed while keeping the swingweight low for those of us that value a lot of maneuverability in a ski. At 88 millimeters under the boot, this ski is best suited for hard packed conditions but it is versatile enough to ski ungroomed and off-piste terrain even in a little bit of snow as well. A directional rocker profile will keep you on top of the crud and allow you to release the edge of the ski very easily should you find yourself in tighter or technical terrain. The Sick Day 88 takes a frontside all-mountain ski and adds a freeride flair to it for those who might want a more playful experience from their frontside ski.

All-Mountain • Groomers • Powder
Im an intermediate - advanced skier. 85kg. 6ft. Can't decide between 172 and 179!? Leaning towards 179 at the minute, but this is my first set so pretty clueless.
I mainly ski on the piste but like to hit moguls, and occasionally off piste
Both are nice choices for front side terrain, but the Black Crows Captis will provide better versatility in off-piste terrain. It shines for its ability to produce a wide variety of turn shapes at different speeds, and is a surprisingly good floater when powder comes your way. At your height and weight, you should be on the 179cm length. The 172 would be too short for you.
Hope this helps and happy holidays1
