1. Line Sir Francis Bacon 2015/16 - Slopeside Ski Review


    from Ellis Brigham Added 1 0 0

    Redesigning a classic ski could be a risky thing to do, but not for Line who are masters of leading trends and creating ahead-of-the-curve products, of which the Bacon has always been a part. Now with an ultra-light core, a sleeker profile and a narrower waist, the new version is more than ever the ski that Eric Pollard wants it to be. This super-fun all mountain, all condition, all terrain ski is the choice for those who don’t care what the establishment says skiing should be. Tester Comments: Dave (Castlefield) For me it’s a prime example of the All Terrain Freestyle category; true to the category spirit, the Bacon is one ski that aims to do it all. Full sidewalls with a responsive flex and positive camber underfoot ensure the Bacon can be skied hard when needed but otherwise its playful character rules both in the park and the pow. Mark (Trainer) Bags of float and an infectious energy making you want to jib and jump off everything. Cloud Core makes them easy to throw about if it gets tricky. Radius: 17.4m (184cm) Sidecut: 135/104/131 (184cm) Sizes: 178, 184, 190

    • Salomon Gemma 2015/16 - Slopeside Ski Review


      from Ellis Brigham Added 1 0 0

      A brand new ski from Salomon, the Gemma, has gone straight to the top of our women’s advanced all mountain category thanks to its smooth handling and effortless power. The mix of 85mm wide waist, shortish radius, traditional wood construction and Carve Rocker at the nose ensures it has the skills to tackle any terrain or condition. And testing proved this: fun when pushed, easy at slow speeds and unflappable in all snow. Tester Comments: Chloe (Braehead) Good ski to charge all over the mountain with, stiff yet very responsive and fun. Andi (Bristol) 85mm gives a stable platform and feels great at speed. Rough terrain is easy with the rocker in the tip. A great choice for an advanced skier looking to explore the mountain a little more without compromising on piste performance. Radius: 14.4m (163cm) Sidecut: 131/85/112 (163cm) Sizes: 157, 163, 169

      • Atomic Cloud Eleven XT 2015/16 - Slopeside Ski Review


        from Ellis Brigham Added 0 0 0

        This runner-up in our Women’s Ski-of-the-Year award was a very pleasant surprise on testing, so much so that all the guys wanted a run to see what the fuss was about. It’s a full-on performance piste ski, no corners cut. The narrow waist ensures quick edge changes, the short radius provides fast turns and razor sharp handling. The minimal amount of rocker means almost maximum camber and, together with the full sidewalls, delivers grip, precision and response. Fun and easier to use than you might imagine! Tester Comments: Abbi (Tamworth) Stiff underfoot but a lightness in the tip and tail make it responsive but not too heavy. Chloe (Braehead) Lively and responsive but extremely enjoyable and fun. It's stiff underfoot and soft in the tip, great edge hold and easy to initiate turns. Andi (Bristol) There’s nothing fluffy about this new, serious high-end piste carver for performance focused lady skiers. Great at top speed. Radius: 12m (155cm) Sidecut: 121/70.5/102.5 (155cm) Sizes: 148, 155, 162, 169

        • DPS Wailer 112RP2 Pure3 2015/16 - Slopeside Ski Review


          from Ellis Brigham Added 2 0 0

          By using the unique Pure3 construction, DPS make this version of the Wailer 112RP2 standout from all the competition. Built with pure pre-preg carbon nanotech sandwich laminates and making use of PaddleTech Geometry this ski mixes power and true light weight, precision and versatility, creating a huge sweet spot and making this the most special freeride ski you’re likely to come across. Tester Comments: Matt (Covent Garden) Off-piste performance was second to none. Totally amazing in the powder, can charge it fast and it’s really stable while being extremely responsive. On piste was good for a ski that’s 112mm underfoot. Expensive but if you can afford it, it’s totally worth it. Radius: 15-18m (184cm) Sidecut: 141/112/128 (184cm) Sizes: 178, 184, 190
