Description

A girthy all-mountain ride upgraded with early rise and made to feel skinny in all the right places.

Make no mistake, the Line Prophet 98 Ski is a west coast in-bounds shredder and an east coast all-mountain ride that will end your concerns about going wider than 90mm underfoot. A little early rise keeps the tip afloat on the deep days, the metal-reinforced wood core is well mannered at speed or in the chop, and a generous, multi-radius sidecut shape lays trenches when groomer days are the only option. Line made this fat beauty feel skinny in all the right places.

  • Early-rise tip and tail camber profile (2/0mm, tip/tail) planes up over deep and inconsistent snow and won't hook or hang up so turn initiation is earlier and easier
  • Directional flex gives this ski a softer tip for float in soft snow and a stiffer tail that provides power, stability, and control at high speed
  • Composite-reinforced maple wood core offers long-term durability and a reliable flex pattern
  • Titanal laminate reinforces the core with metal, aids the transfer of power to your edges, shovel, or tail, and encourages increased edge grip
  • Fatty Base and Edge means that this skis has a 30% thicker base and edge for dramatically increased durability and tuning life
  • Capwall, or a combination of cap and sandwich construction, combines the weight savings and responsiveness of cap construction with the edging power of sidewall construction
  • 90mm width gives you a versatile platform that balances flotation in soft snow with stability at speed and snappy in-turn maneuverability
  • 5Cut sidecut blends five different sizes of turn radius into a single sidecut shape for ultimate turn shape versatility ... which means easier handling anywhere on the mountain

Form Squaw to Kirkwood...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Finally getting back into skiing after a long break. The last time I'd skied I was a young teenager wearing Rosi 160s that were almost a foot taller than me.

I picked these up after a few rentals that I didn't like and I was shocked. I learned to ski in Utah, so I'm accustomed to powder... but after taking these through several resorts in the Sierra they make groomed and even late day icy runs manageable. They are incredibly forgiving, but after a day or two of hitting blues and blacks I was able to see that these skis have a lot of life in them... and are likely capable of far more than I care to try.

I can't recommend them highly enough. I spent a week comparing them to rentals and the moment I had them on the slope their quality and design was obvious... even in mediocre to poor conditions. They edge beautifully, have a lot to offer moderately skilled skiers, but remain incredibly forgiving to beginning skiers, or those finally picking up skiing after a long break.

Great All Mountain Ski

I put these skis to the test at Kimberley and Fernie resorts in BC. I skied everything from groomers, steeps, powder, trees, bumps and bullet proof scraped down runs to ice. These ripped great on all but the ice which is to expected with 98mm under foot, but even then I could dig an edge in if I put my weight into it a bit more. I'm 6'2" and 220lbs. I'm riding the 186cm.

Love these skis!

Great beginner skis

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I did a lot of research before buying which consistently pointed me toward these skis. This was my first season learning to ski and I wanted a ski that could do a bit of everything. I like riding groomers, trees, powder, and I wanted to be able to take these on short tours until I get more touring specific skis later on.

I had rented skis 4 or 5 times before buying these, and each time I had increased the length of my skis in order to get ready for buying a pair. The result was that each time I would ski terribly for the first half of the day until I got used to the length. My last day of renting I bumped up to 170cm and had a lot of frustration getting back up to my previous level, so I was nervous about buying these ever longer.

I ended up buying these in 179cm with Fritschi Eagle bindings, and I was able to ski well immediately the very first time I took them out. They are easy to control and ski well all kinds of snow. They don't exactly keep you on top when you try to roll through a foot of powder, but they keep going just fine and don't get stuck. I'm about 6', 185lbs.

I've also taken them on a short tour at Paradise on Mt. Rainier and although the conditions were terrible the skis did fine. This isn't exactly a fast and light setup, so it felt a bit heavy on the feet, but for a short outing they were great.

I did need to use the G3 twin tip connector in order to secure the skins to the tail. They would probably not stay on very well without it.

I highly recommend these for a beginners first all-around ski. Super versatile and fun to ride.

Took these skis to Sugarloaf Mountain, ME the other weekend. These skis performed excellent in the trees, floated incredibly well in powder, and killed the steeps. Even hit some mogul runs with them, expected to not handle them very well, but I ripped right over them. Best ski I have ever owned! Can't wait to ski them again.

I am trying to decide between these and Armada TST, Volkl mantra or Icelantic Nomad RKR. Currently ski prophet 90, pre rocker. Ski about 50 days a year in east and one trip to colorado or utah each year. I am 175lbs, 5' 8" and ski pretty aggressively. Loved my previous prophets as they charged like race skis but were a bit tough to get around in the trees. Skiing trees in the east gets pretty tight and i am looking for something a bit easier to turn in the trees without giving up too much stability at speed. Classic have my cake and eat it too... any suggestions would be helpful. Please don't suggest Blizzard bonafids.

I don't have an answer...just wondering why you don't want the Bonafide suggestion. I am trying to pick between this ski, the Bonafide and the Mantras. I ski all mountain around Seattle and Utah. Thanks for the comments!

skis switch every so often and can never trust over hyped skis. Almost got fooled into buying a pair of atomic theory after they were "ski of the year" last year. total noodles.
