Waist Width: 88
The Afterbang appears to be similar to other skis in the All Mountain Freestyle Collection (mainly due to its 88 m waist), but upon looking into its design, it sets itself apart in several ways. It's the only model in the collection that uses Skate Deck Technology, which uses 6 plys of maple veneers in the core (same as a skateboard) designed for extra durability. It's also the only ski in the collection that uses 3D Butterzone technology, which makes the thinnest point of the ski right on front of the binding, designed for optimal butters and presses. It does share a lot of technology with other models in the series (see below), but these unique design aspects set the apart at the same time. The All Terrain Freestyle Collection is comprised of five different skis, each intended to get the job done in the park and anywhere else you may desire. The collection utilizes a wide variety of shared technology: Fatty Base & Edge technology uses thick edges and bases designed for extra durability and longer lifespan. Symmetric Flex technology gives the same flex profile both in front of, and behind the boot, designed to make skiing forwards and backwards feel exactly the same for freestylers. Five Cut technology combines five different sidecut designs, intended to collectively simplify turn initiation and grip. If you like to spend a lot of time in the park but also enjoy plenty of time outside of it, this is one of the best series Line has to offer you. Line, founded in 1995, is based in Seattle, Washington.
