Warrior one, two, and three.
Touting a nimble, buttery, and lightweight construction, the Line Mordecai Ski is the latest installment in Eric Pollard's line of freeride sticks with a design that sits somewhere between the Magnum Opus and Sir Francis Bacon. Carving groomers was fun during your racing days, but you've since grown out of your spandex and look at the mountain in a whole different way—the Mordecai is what you'll want on your feet as you embark on your pow-slashing freeride journey.
Sitting wide with a 114mm waist and early rise tip and tail, the Mordecai is capable of floating some of the deepest pow stashes you can sniff out, and with moderate camber underfoot, this ski will still hold a solid edge when you're arcing wide turns between drops and wind lips off-piste. Power is key when you're skiing beyond the beaten path days after the last storm, so Line threw in sidewalls to put more power to the edges, but kept the tips thin to reduce swing weight when you're throwing threes of pillow lines and buttering off cat tracks. The Mordecai would probably be disowned from the Line family if it didn't have Line's famous Fivecut sidecut, which blends five different radius shapes into one, resulting in a ski that's intuitive and can be turned just about any way you please.
It would be a disservice to both the creative mind of Eric Pollard and Line's elite team of engineers to not mention the Mordecai's construction. The core consists of a lightweight full wood core, which utilized Paulownia wood to keep the ski light, lively, and strong, while layers of fiberglass and P-Tex sidewalls help keep the ski solid and stable when you decide to lay them on edge and go. Line ensures the flex of each ski is consistent both in front and behind your boot, so the feel of the ski remains predictable when you're stomping landings switch, or going into big booters backwards. The short 17-meter radius makes the Mordecai a playful bird that will float over anything and make short, fun turns down tight tree lines and gun-barrel chutes.
