Waist Width: 92
The Chronic is a middle ground ski in the All Mountain Freestyle Collection, with a 121 mm tip, 91 mm waist, 117 mm tail, and 19 m radius. The ski is designed to be very versatile, and while its main intention is to be used in the park, it's additionally intended for groomers and all other areas of the mountain. The ski shares a variety of technology amongst the entire All Terrain Freestyle series (see below), but it also has some unique qualities to it: A Maple Macroblock core is designed to be extra durable through the integration of maple stringers (strips of maple wood) surrounded by aspen wood. Early Rise technology lifts the tips and tails early in the ski (instead of a traditional short tip and tail), designed to make turn initiation and floating over powder easier. Thin Tip technology lightens the tips, designed to reduce swing weight and chatter. 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.
