Line doesn’t have to like it, but the one-time indy brand for cool kids (now K2-owned) is edging into the mainstream. No wonder, with skis like the Prophet, a perennial winner and one-time Ski of the Year. You don’t have to ski with 90-cm poles and a bandana to appreciate the 100’s easy fluidity, and you don’t have to be a 90-day guy to handle it. Testers deemed it reasonably forgiving. “Tremendous versatility; lively, yet surprisingly efficient on hard snow,” said Couperthwait.
