Waist Width: 114
All new from Line this season, the Mordecai is a wide all-mountain ski intended to mow over powder and other varied conditions. It has 114 mm waist and 17 m sidecut radius-specs intended for fast skiing on a wide variety of terrain, mainly outside of the groomers. The ski is packed with a variety of technology shared amongst each model in the Eric Pollard Collection (see below), but one thing not shared amongst the whole collection that the Mordecai has is its Maple Macroblock core, which is designed to be extra durable through the integration of maple stringers (strips of maple wood) surrounded by aspen wood. The Eric Pollard Collection is a powder and all mountain-focused collection that pro skier Eric Pollard has designed from the ground up, including the top sheet artwork. 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. Longer Active Edge technology extends the edges up the tips and tails, built to increase edge grip. Five Cut technology combines five different sidecut designs, intended to collectively simplify turn initiation and grip. Sidewall technology incorporates dense polyethylene (light weight plastic) intended to absorb vibrations and keep the ski durable. Lastly, 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. Line, founded in 1995, is based in Seattle, Washington.
