The Pandora 95 is the skinnier model in the Pandora series, with a 130 mm tip, 95 mm waist, 115 mm tail, and 13.8 m radius. These dimensions are designed with powder skiing in mind, and the radius is designed to be short enough to weave through touch-to-reach spots or just making quick and snappy turns. However, it's built skinny enough to rip hardpack as well, as the 95 mm waist is similar to some of Line's more hardpack-focused models. The ski also integrates Thin Tip technology, which lightens the tips, designed to reduce swing weight and chatter. For something similar but wider, check out the Pandora 110. The Pandora series specializes in women's freeride skis, featuring two models that share a variety of technology intended for big mountain skiing. An Aspenlite Macroblock core is made entirely of aspen wood, designed to make the ski as lightweight as possible. Directional Flex integrates a softer tip and stiffer tail, designed to initiate turns well while maintaining stability in the transition to the next turn. Five Cut technology combines five different sidecut designs, intended to collectively simplify turn initiation and grip. If you're a lady who likes to ski powder, cliffs, chutes, and all sorts of other burly stuff, this is one of the best series Line has to offer you. Line, founded in 1995, is based in Seattle, Washington.
