The Supernatural 100 is a middle ground model in the Supernatural series, designed to perform equally well on hardpack and in powder with its 132 mm tip, 100 mm waist, 121 mm tail, and long, 21.3 m radius. It shares several technologies with the entire Supernatural series (see below), but also has a couple of unique aspects to it: 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, and Thin Tip technology lightens the tips, designed to reduce swing weight and chatter. For something similar but wider, check out the Supernatural 108 and Supernatural 115. And for something similar but skinnier, check out the Supernatural 92 and 92 Lite. The Supernatural series focuses on a wide variety of skiing styles by way of its five different models. Whether you're looking for powder or hardpack, Line has designed a Supernatural ski intended to take it on. Maple Macroblock cores are 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 throughout the transition into the next turn. Five Cut technology combines five different sidecut designs, intended to collectively simplify turn initiation and grip. Line, founded in 1995, is based in Seattle, Washington.
