Description

You be the judge.

The Line Afterbang is a revolution in park ski construction, one that replaces traditional topsheet-sidewall-core layup with a single element straight from the skate origins of park and pipe: hardrock maple. Built like a skateboard deck, the Afterbang starts as a 7-ply maple blank with carbon stringers, and adds just a base, metal edges, and a protective fiberglass coat on top to complete the package. It butters, pops, and rails like nothing you’ve ever ridden, and it just might change the ski industry forever.
  • Continuous 7-ply maple Deck Construction provides strength, durability, and pure wood flex
  • Carbon stringers amplify pop without adding weight
  • Center mount Symmetrical Geometry optimizes park and pipe performance
  • Fatty Base & Edge sidewall construction takes a beating on the hill and on the tuning table
  • Topsheet art by Jim & Jimbo Phillips (yes, that Jim Phillips)

Where's the butter zone?

I had the Line Invaders and found them to be softer in flex than the Afterbangs. They're still a great set of skis for park, it would be nicer if Line added rocker and possibly magnetraction on em for next year. Overall best park ski out there for now.

Responded on

No dude I don't think a rocker would be neccesary for a park ski and it already has a nice butter zone so what more can you ask for. If you want a nice rocker twin tip ask for the salomon shoguns their a sweet ski.

What can I say

no problems with em, they have had the shit beat out of them, they handle jumps fine, they are great for rails and boxes, some work in powder but still fun, and are great for anything urban

I just bought a pair of Afterbangs, and I'm not really sure what to do when mounting them to make sure the wood doesn't split. I've heard a few things regarding wood glue, but I want to make sure they're done right. Can anyone help me out?

p.s.- I have the access to the proper mounting bit and the jig to do so.

The Afterbang looks sweet when it's beat up a bit. Like your skateboard.

will Line next year be making bigger afterbang skis...cuz i'm 6'5" 180pounds and im a good all round skiier but wanted to get more into park however im lookin for a longer ski (so far biggest ski i have found is 183 which is smaller than what i am currently riding)

Responded on

A bigger version of the Afterbang with some carbon fiber is in the works for next season. Will likely be in the low 180cm's range though. Most park boards are pretty short since agile is the name of the game. You may want to check out some bigger fat skis that are twin'd. Something like an EP Pro, Prophet 130, K2 ObSethed, or 4FRNT, Moment, and Armada offerings.

Responded on

I'm 6'5 240 lbs. I ride Line Anthems 181. They give me more than enough speed. Especially for park you should have no problems on skis that size, especially condsidering how little you weight (relatively of course). Hope that helps

Posted on

Is the Afterbang significantly softer than the Chronic in flex? Also, is there a mounting point for more all-mountain riding? Or is center-mounting the only recommended point?

Responded on

it's a symmetric ski, why the F*** would you mount it back, seriously though mount it center if you don't we will all laugh at you on the mountain. if you want a more all mountain cruiser get the chronics or the Cronic cryptonite because they can be mounted back but still destroy in the park jumps and to a lesser extent rails. the afterbang is a cheap, non-pricepoint ski that absolutly destroys in the park but cant handle the more technical stuff as well

Responded on

You will ruin the performance of this ski if you dont center mount it. This is a jib specific ski at its core and park in general. Look for a different ski if you want to go all mountain. You probably wont be happy with the ski otherwise.

I'm 5'8 and 185 lbs should move up to the 177cm ? Also how much less poppy are they than the anthem that I skied last year..? Any comments would help..

Best Answer Responded on

i can't attest to skiing on last years anthem, but as far as sizing, you could go with either 166 or 177. 177 will have more speed, but for your height, will be harder to control. 166 you'll definitely whip around. think about your riding style. if you're going big, go with bigger sticks.

Responded on

I own anthems, and I'd say afterbangs are more snappy, and a little stiffer. Anthems are just soft and buttery. And DEFINITELY get 177's. 166 is TINY.

Hey im 5'11" to 6' and about 215lbs and i was wondering if these would be a good ski for me and also was wondering how these handle jumps because my main worry is washing out

Responded on

These skis definitely handle jumps pretty well for a softer ski. Not as great as some of the stiffer skis out there but they should be fine for anything 40' and under. If you mostly shred park on the east or midwest these skis will be a good choice...you will want to go bigger than the 155cm that's on here though.

Responded on

The '77 may be pretty small for you. It's a true twin, center mount ski and is pretty soft way up at the tips and tails. If you want a Line jib ski, I'd say check out the Chronic as it's more solid and still super good for freestyle skiing. Line is batting around the idea of a bigger Afterbang ski for next season, so keep an eye out.

Review Title

such a fun ski... the butter zone is so easy to light up. It is easy to go at slow speed and does remarkably well at higher speeds. Lock it up with a Jester or Griffon and it is money.

Best Answer Responded on

I'm tempted to say the 166 is better... but I know that for now it is too long. The 155 should get you by for that long, but definitely only in the park.

Any one know if these are stiffer then the anthem or not.

Responded on

I own anthems, and I've flexed afterbangs, and I'm pretty sure they are a little stiffer than anthems...

Responded on

They are just a bit stiffer overall because more wood is used in the tips and tails.
