A legendary ski that has helped to define the term 'one ski quiver'

The Sir Francis Bacon, "Bacon" or "SFB" from Line has become legendary in the Freeski community. Lap powder in the morning, shred trees after lunch and hit the park or piste in the afternoon – Sir Francis will do it all. Sharing a shape and profile with the Mordecai, but offering slimmer dimensions, it's quicker edge-to-edge and more responsive through turns, making it one of the most versatile skis on the market.

Lightweight but solid

Built around the lightweight wood blend of Line's Partly Cloudy Core – with a vibration-absorbing ultra-high density polyethylene band along the edge of the ski – the Bacon offers a smooth, stable feel, while the tapered Thin Tip construction in the nose and tail reduces swing-weight, boosting manoeuvrability pop.

Playful and forgiving

Aimed at intermediate to advanced skiers, the SFB offers a symmetrical flex pattern that both powerful and playful, whether you're riding regular or switch. Early Rise reverse camber in the nose and tail makes them super easy to butter and press and delivers awesome float in powder, while an Early Taper shape – where the widest points of the sidecut begin and end earlier in the ski – vastly reduces the chance of edge catches or tip and tail hang-ups on-piste and in powder.

Adapts to how you want to ride

Line's advanced 5-Cut geometry blends five different radii into the ski's overall sidecut, resulting in a ski which rides intuitively based on how fast you're skiing and how much edge you're using. And chances are, given the quality of the SFB's Sintered 1.3 Base, you'll be riding pretty darn fast indeed.

So, if you want an all-mountain ski that almost as powder hungry as the Mordacai, but a little bit more piste-friendly, the Sir Francis Bacon is a solid choice.
