Description

You won't believe it's not butter.

The Line EP Pro has been fasting all summer, but now it's back for another helping of the deepest deep. Eric Pollard's pow-specific pro model has a crazy fat, progressive shape and super-springy flex, turning any backcountry bowl into your personal terrain garden. He and Line incorporated early rise on both ends to make the ski pop to the surface like a cork in oil, then sink slightly rearward so you don't need to sit on your tails. Meanwhile, the early taper shovel and tail decrease hooking in powder and make slarvy smear turns second-nature. Underfoot, the flat base and standard sidecut let you rip up crud, groomers, and even hardpack while the kids on reverse-camber, reverse-sidecut boards flail toward the liftline. Fatty base and edge design shields your sticks from nasty core shots, edge blow outs, and season after season of tuning. As usual, Eric designed the topsheet and base graphics for the EP Pro, so if you hate ‘em, you'll have to tell him yourself.

some of the best out!

I demoed these for a recent storm out here in UT. 10 hours of riding 2+ feet of fresh really let me get a good feel for these skis across a wide range of conditions.
In straight powder, they're incredibly responsive and agile. I felt very confident sending more stuff than normal in the woods, and never had an issue with landing.
The rocker is a dream, not too much of it (see surface's rocker) and definitely not too little. Landing switch in deeper snow was much easier than on my previous skis ('12 kung fujas).
All in all- highly recommended. Be sure to mount close to, or at the dead center of the ski, otherwise you're limiting yourself on the performance the skis will deliver.

EP Pros or JJ's? been lookin at both and just wanted to know some differences so i can fugure out wats right for me, thnx

Best Answer Responded on

Hello there Jordan. In comparing the Armada JJs to the Line EP Pros, they have two differences:

1. The JJ has a longer amount of regular camber underfoot than the EP Pro. This means it has less rocker as well, but that doesn't mean it won't float as good and it'll run a little easier on the hardpack.

2. Both ski differently. While the EP Pro is a little more surfy and likes to let the turn run a little, the JJ is super playful and can rocket off turns really quickly.

So, it comes down to how you like to ski your pow. Neither skis are for a really strong, punishing skiing style, but I would choose the EP Pro if pretty open pow fields are on the menu. If you ski tight trees and cornices a lot, then the JJs will be your thing.

well pollard uses the marker jester on his pair so I would bet they would work just fine.

Buy these but don't tattoo your face

This is the fattest most progressive freeride ski available. Skiing on these reminds me of playing with my Tonka Truck in my turtle shaped sand box when I was 8; this ski will roll over anything. Nothing is off limits with this ski. Ski up snowdrifts, sail through powdery flats, ski and land in powder switch. Use the super stiff underfoot with its short radius to make quick turns and dodge the beaters on the cat tracks and groomers, like you're playing Frogger, on your way to your favorite powder stash or back to the lift. Slash powder with these and take more face shots than Mike Tyson.

They did the job

Well I had the opportunity to ski these a few weeks back up at the Bird with about a foot+ of some heavyish pacific nw snow. I thought they were great and super easy to ski anywhere. The powder performance was awesome and super smooth and simple to ski. The groomers were even pretty good, I was able to lay and hold an edge with no problem. Dropping smaller cliffs and jumping on these was a blast and the huge platform smooths everthing out until you hit the mank where it really gets tracked out cut up. They seemed to get tossed around rather than charge through the mank. Moguls were manageable. However hen you get in the back seat it does take a little more effort to get back on top of them due to the soft rockered tail. Overall I thought they were fun but to soft for me at 6'1" and 185lbs
and my style of skiing which is generally very aggressive and fast. I guess if I jibbed more they might be closer to the top. They do ski backwards quite well also.

i can't decide between the line EP pros or the K2 hellbents do you have any advice?

Responded on

ep pro's are softer,lighter but don't ski groomers as well, hellbents are soft in the tip@tail but fairly stiff under foot making them more versatile, if your heavier go hellbent but if you want a more playful ski go ep pro.

Could someone please recommend a climbing...

Could someone please recommend a climbing skin and size for this ski. Climbing performance is important, but i am most concerned with how easy they are to put on and remove and how much room they take up in my pack.

My all time favorite ski is the Sir francis...

My all time favorite ski is the Sir francis bacon which I use in all conditions at Alyeska. I was thinking about a pair of EP pro's with Marker Duke's as a backcountry, occasional resort setup. Any thoughts? My only concern is going much wider than the Bacon. I am however intrigued by the early rise concept. My dream ski would be the Bacon with just a hint of early rise and about 5 cm longer. I guess my question is would the Duke's compliment this ski or sort of defeat the purpose?

Responded on

EP pros with dukes is a rather large setup. If you are "touring" go lighter(smaller). If you are just skinning back up from the side country then it will work just fine. You may be able to settle for the Marker Barons...depends on your weight. Remember, fat skis will require fat skins and beefy binders that will add weight.another ski you should look at is the armada jj's. they are about the same size as the bacon's but with a little bit of early rise

Great Ski

I've gotten a few looks in the lift line with these things on my feet, but the way down is worth it. They float like a dream, and the flat spot underfoot allows for good control on the way back to the lift. I only took them out about 6 times last year and was blown away every time.

Love these skis

I got a pair of these in February last year and probably got 6 days on them. All in 8+ inches of Colorado fluff. The float was unbelievable. I had them center mounted, which took some getting used to. I'm still not sure that's how I want to keep them, as I'm used to a more traditional alpine binding location. The flat spot underfoot really lets you control the ski on the way back to the lift. I wouldn't recommend this as your every day ski (unless you only ski powder days).
