Description

Symmetrical invasions.

Jib, stomp, and butter riding regular or switch—the twintip Line Invader Alpine Ski gives you a killer ride in both directions. The Invader's center-mounted stance and 100% symmetric flex and geometry mean you can carve, spin, turn, and butter with consistency. The Invader's milled Butter Zones create a distinct hinge point for smooth, controllable nose and tail presses, while Line's durable Fatty base and edges take punishing abuse. The tough but lightweight maple core gives you smooth, consistent flex and pop for seasons of park destruction.

i am 5'5 and about 135 lbs. what size should i get and are suspects better

Best Answer Responded on

I would go 171 for a park ski for you. And as for Invaders or Suspects, it depends on what you want. The Suspects are traditionally shaped while the Invaders are symmetrical. This means they ski great switch, but the tails have a tendency to hook up every now and then, usually in the deeper snow, and you have to mount them true center.

Solid

Invaders are where it's at. Love these skis, could be that they were my first twins but they rock. This was my one ski quiver for a season(broke as a joke). I used these all over the mountain, resort to back country booters. While it was a little difficult to stay afloat, I still used em. It's all about your mindset, just click in and kill it. I enjoyed them in the trees, the park, the hour hike up Kachina Peak for the 4 minute rush down.

Im thinking about getting this pair of skis very seriously right now but i need to know if they are hard to land switch???

Responded on

No harder than any other ski. If you can do it on your old skis, then it is no different. They ride great switch though, so the runout is nice, but the landing is up to you.

Responded on

The symmetrical side cut helps, but you're still riding backwards. The invaders won't let you down. I had a few instances on some shitty boxes last season where I'd try and 450 off only to get hung up on a dry spot exiting switch.

whats stronger this or the chronic?

Best ever

these are the best skis ever. i ski the east and i only focus on park, glades, and moguls because i personally think groomers suck. these skis stand up to everything the go through. Ive alreadt skied about 130 hours on these and i plan to go to the end of april. great butters, amazing jibs, and great bounce back for moguls and tight glades. Bottom line: GET THESE SKIS!!!!!!!!!!

Posted on

invaders or anthems. i ski east how much better are anthems on hard pack. i would like a pretty soild park ski for both park and groomers. and i like to ski fast on groomers kinda worried bout chatter. (height 6 feet/ weight 170) recommened size? thanks

Responded on

The invaders handle groomers well, but in my experience, a wider ski is better for powering through ice and granular. the anthem is also more fun (imho) because of the flex pattern, and a wide ski give you that much more stability on rails.
Don't get anything less than a 178, but either the anthem or the invader would suit your needs.
i would go anthems though...

Which one is better for straight up park the Anthem or theese I want somthin that super poppy and stable on rails but still good in the pipe im pretty small (5.6 feet and about 125ish weight) i ski a pretty crappy park and im kinda ne which one?

Best Answer Responded on

These beat the Anthem if it's just straight park.

Responded on

It's opinion. They anthems flex pattern is perfect for park. also the width and the stiffness underfoot helps with bigger hits. The waist in the 90s also kill it on rails.

Which ones Invaders or Anthems

Which ones Invaders or Anthems

Responded on

The anthem is just a fatter invader, so it you prefer fatter skis or ski softer snow go anthem, if your smaller and need a lighter ski to spin around go invader.

Go a size smaller

The butter zones are amazing on these skis. Make sure to not get too large of a size, because then you will have difficulty hitting the hinge point for buttering.

love em'

i ride hyland hills minnesota and i gotta say i love these skis the are perfect for jibs and the moderately hard pack snow we got out here i have some marker griffon's on em and the extra wide binding really sets this ski apart from the rest, super light skis and so far they seem pretty durable as well. bottom line: BUY THESE SKIS you cant go wrong with a price this low for a ski this great!

I have been skiing these hard the whole season so far but i was thinking about getting a new ski. I ride park most the time but i am down for a good hard mogul run or some drops. i am trying to decide between the K2 Extreme and the Salomon Suspects. Which ones would fit my basic needs?

Responded on

the suspects are core park skis if i were you i would look into skis that arent symetrical for some backcountry riding k2' could be nice i havent heard alot about them

Posted on

i am about 6'1 and bought 185lbs sking in midwest, i currently own the k2 fugitives and want something like them but a little more flexible and playful but nothing heavier. i am decideing between these and the AR6s. i ski about 80 20 park to groomers. if anyone has any suggestions of which one i should get that would be great

Responded on

I say the AR6's, they are way more stable with speed for stompin' the big hits with the speed and style needed. Tons of pop and super playful.>>>>Well I have not skied theese but i have skied on the AR6 s they r ok but they feel weird caus of the changing flex pattern but there realllllllllllyyyyy powerful skis

jib lords

king of jibs, but i have to say there squably with speed... if you got the extra 50 or 100 bucks id hit up the anthems, and i say this because i know all skiers dont wanna sit around and hit jibs all day, i mean invaders can hold up on jumps, but it's tougher. anthem is much more solid and as the reviews and product videos say on www.lineskis.com the anthem just plows threw powder.. were as the invader being so light is a little more difficult to control.

Posted on

so, im 6'2 at 155ish lbs 19 yrs old skiing in VT. im trying to decide between the anthems and the invaders, im sort of leaning towards the invaders now, because they are thinner, i have 169 (yes i realize how redicuously short it is) fujatives ( 113-85-104 ) and never skiid a wide ski, i love the ride of my fugatives but want something my size (going to do 178) and softer, is the difference in flex between the two really that different? and the most fresh we get here at once is probally like a foot, then its gone in a day. no problems in it on my k2's. thanks in advance for any helpoh, and im like 60-40 or 70-30 park-evrythingelse.

Responded on

The flex between them is almost the same, i think the anthems have more pop to them and are more stable off jumps because of the width, but the invader is quicker, if you don't need the width go invader.

Posted on

I was wondering how durable these are. Am i going to have to replace them in a year or should they last me. Also how are these on ice and hard snow( east coast conditions)

Responded on

It depends on how hard you ride them in the park, Most park skis only last about a year if ridden hard, edges start to blow out and you might get some delam. If you mean by riding them all-mountain in ice and hardpack, they are to soft. take a look at the chronic or suspect or wall for those conditions.

Great Park Skis, but it ends there

These skis are great for everything inside the park. The butter zones make it easy to pop onto rails and off jumps, and because they are so light they spin very well. Although, if you plan on doing a lot of skiing outside of the park these skis are not for you. They tend to be slow and are pretty unstable with a lot of chatter at high speeds. This should be expected though, considering the invaders are a park specific ski.

Crazy sick urban ski

This is by far the best park ski i've ever owned. They have a nice fast base and durable edges. Due to there light weight you can do crazy spins, switch 9's off 40ft tables and pretzel 450's off small rails. They are really poppy and fun. The side cut is great, great for carving those GS turns and buttering all around. The only possible down side of this ski is when you ski a lot of rails, they detune, but if your doing rails, this is good. So i guess nothing bad hails from this ski. Super good park/urban ski for any level rider.
