line afterbangs 166cm

These skis are absolutely amazing! I have ridden the line 166cm afterbangs or one season now and I cant get enough of them. The skis are made mostly for park skiing but work great on any other run too. I ski a lot of park and they have been terrific for it! Also I do a lot of urban handrails which tends to really bang up skis pretty bad but these skis are holding up very well. I have taken some hard falls with almost no damage to my skis. Afterbangs have a construction like no other ski because they are made just like a skateboard deck. Its made with a seven layer maple veneer core making them almost fully wooden. To some people that makes it sound like they could break really easily but honestly they take less damage than a regular ski. Also line used a 10 string carbon ollie band instead of 7 which gives the ski much more pop for big ollies. The skis are also made perfectly symmetric so riding switch (backwards) is exactly the same as riding forwards. Becasue of the wood being so strong the have butter zone that are located right in front of te boot giving much more control on butters. The skis also have no side wall which also makes it sound like they would break easily but it in fact helps because there's no sidewall that could get damaged. The design on the top of the skis is printed on to the wood so there is no top sheet and the designs on the skis are very cool.

Overall I give these skis a 9.5/10 because there very tough, work great in the park but also work really well on anything else you want to ski. I would recommend these to anyone who skis a lot of park.
