The 2017 Line Honey Badger is a new addition to Line's Freestyle collection. It's billed as equally versatile in the park, up on the mountain, or on the streets. Like the next-mode-up Chronic, it's a bi-directional twin-tip, and it's built in almost exactly the same shape. But its core is made of economical bamboo instead of maple/aspen, and it's a softer-flexing, easier-skiing, more-affordable cap construction. Line Skis, founded in 1995 by early independent ski-making entrepreneur and twin-tip inventor Jason Levinthal, is a subsidiary of K2, which, along with Volkl, Dalbello, and Marker, is a subsidiary of the Jarden Group, which was itself purchased by the Newell Rubbermaid consumer-products conglomerate in 2016. Based in Seattle, Wash., Line manufactures its skis in China. Sister brands include K2 and Full Tilt. -J.C.
