Waist Width: 110
The Sick Day 110 is the widest ski in the Sick Day Collection, with a 142 mm tip, 110 mm waist, and 125 mm tail. Its main intention is to rip powder and other varied conditions, and 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. But it's also designed to take on hard pack when it needs to with its long, 18.1 m radius and practical underfoot profile. For something similar but skinnier, check out the Sick Day 102 and Sick Day 95. The Sick Day collection specializes in big mountain skis intended to rip all sorts of terrain. Each model in the series (except the Tourist) shares a few aspects of technology: A Maple Macroblock core is designed to be extra durable through the integration of maple stringers (strips of maple wood) surrounded by aspen wood. Five Cut technology combines five different sidecut designs, intended to collectively simplify turn initiation and grip. Thin Tip technology lightens the tips, designed to reduce swing weight and chatter. Directional Flex integrates a softer tip and stiffer tail, designed to initiate turns well while maintaining stability throughout the transition to the next turn. Line, founded in 1995, is based in Seattle, Washington.
