The Soulmate 86 is the skinnier ski in the Soulmate series, with a 125 mm tip, 86 mm waist, and 111 mm tail. It's intended to ski all terrain, but this model in particular is designed more towards hardpack skiing. For a similar but more powder-focused ski, check out the Soulmate 92. The Soulmate Series is a women's-specific series featuring skis designed with versatility in mind. The two models in the series are intended to ski both powder and hardpack equally well, much thanks due to the variety of technology they share: A Maple Macroblock core is designed to be extra durable through the integration of maple stringers (strips of maple wood) surrounded by aspen wood. Directional Flex integrates a softer tip and stiffer tail, designed to initiate turns well while maintaining stability in the transition to the next turn. Five Cut technology combines five different sidecut designs, intended to collectively simplify turn initiation and grip. Thin Tip technology, which lightens the tips, is designed to reduce swing weight and chatter. If you're a lady who likes to ski it all and splits time between hardpack and powder, this is the best women's series Line has to offer you. Line, founded in 1995, is based in Seattle, Washington.
