The Line Sick Day 110, which returns unchanged for 2017, is the fattest ski in the four-model Sick Day collection-designed to be wide enough for all but the deepest powder days yet still edgy and quick enough for softpack and crud conditions. Line's Sick Day collection includes three models of directional all-mountain freeriders in waist widths of 110, 102, and 95 mm, plus a lightweight backcountry touring model of the 102, the Sick Day Tourist. All are built for medium flex, with slight twin tails (not to loose, not too edgy) and traditional aft-of-center sidecut waisting and mounting points. (For skis with more center-mounted freestyle performance, see the Freestyle collection-Mordecai, Bacon, Wallisch, etc. For even stronger, edgier freeride performance, see the Supernaturals.) The three all-mountain Sick Days are built with Line's Capwall construction: low sidewalls supporting a soft-flexing cap, for a medium-edgy performance. All have full wood cores (maple and aspen) for durability and responsiveness. The Tourist gets Line's lightweight Cloud Core, a mix of airy foam reinforced with wood. All Sick Days are rockered in the tip and tail for soft-snow smeariness, with camber underfoot for hardpack carvability. All are sold flat. Line Skis, founded in 1995 by early independent ski-making entrepreneur and twin-tip inventor Jason Levinthal, is a subsidiary of K2, which, along with Volkl, Dalbello, and Marker, is a subsidiary of the Jarden Group, which was itself purchased by the Newell Rubbermaid consumer-products conglomerate in 2016. Based in Seattle, Wash., Line manufactures its skis in China. Sister brands include K2 and Full Tilt. -J.C.
