The new Tease is billed as an "all-terrain" twin-tip with a versatile 86-mm waist that handles hard or soft snow equally well. But with its symmetrical flex and near-symmetrical sidecut, which enhances switch-riding performance, it clearly will do double-duty as a park ski or all-mountain freestyler. A subtle hint of tip and tail rocker will keep it loose on the snow and easy to pivot, but as with all Line skis, there's camber underfoot for carving and rebound. It's a lightweight, metal-free Capwall construction, blending low sidewalls, for solid edge feel with a cap structure on top, for forgiving flex and performance. Line's new, lighter Maplelite Macro Block core blends dense maple underfoot for power and durability with lightweight aspen tip and tail for reduced swing-weight. ThinTip tips are extra thin and flexible for supple shock absorption and further weight savings.
