The Flite is the affordable Prophet, built on the same chassis as the Prophet 90 but with a regular, metal-free cap construction that makes it more affordable and easier to manage. It's designed for 20 percent powder, 80 percent all-mountain performance, making it a good choice as a "daily driver" for eastern skiers. The tip rocker is slight, just 1 mm at the foremost 5 cm of the ski to keep it loose and smooth on hardpack.

Was it just three years ago that Line was the scrappy little independent brand with way more passion than market share? Times have changed, though certainly the marketing muscle of parent company K2 must have helped. The twin-tipped Prophets have been tester favorites all along. The Flite is a lightened version of the 90 (a former category winner), ranking No. 3 for Forgiveness. Some testers wanted more edge-grip, but the price is certainly right, and Line still ranks No. 1 in street cred, whether it’s for you or your teenager. “A solid bump ski, quick in the trees, even moonlights in crud; was a joy,” said Malone.
