Buttery light with a strong backbone, the KORE 97 W's lightweight construction means more energy for all-mountain adventures. A blend of materials reduce weight without sacrificing performance such as light Graphene fused into the rockered tip and tail for a feathery swing weight. Light but stiff Karuba wood in the core is sandwiched by triaxle woven carbon adding responsiveness, while a new durable topsheet shape rounds out the KORE 97 W's offering as a one-ski quiver for the adventurous freeride skier.
While not always the most practical skis in our quivers, it's safe to say that any experienced skier longs for something they can use on those dream-worthy days fill with bottomless powder and endless smiles are endless. The K2 Mindbender 115C Alliance is a full-on powder ski designed for ladies that want waterski-like float in deep powder packaged into something light, playful, and versatile enough to handle buffed out choppy snow when conditions aren't ideal. This ski starts with a lightweight Aspen Veneer wood core which is infused by K2's Spectral Braid Technology which is a Carbon fiber weave wrapping the core, dictating the torsional stiffness throughout the ski based on the tightness of that weave. More specifically, the weave is tighter in the tip and canter of the ski which provide a lot of stability and power to those segments of the ski, while the looser weave in the tail allows for less torsional stiffness by design, allowing for easy edge release and lateral maneuverability. This design feature equates to a stable and chargy ski at high speeds or in choppy snow while still providing a lot of surfyness in deep snow. K2 also uses their Carbon Boost technology in the Mindbender Alliance 115 C which features Carbon stringers that run tip to tail giving the ski a lot of liveliness and pop for an energetic feel in deep snow. A waist width of 115 millimeters in combination with a generous tip and tail rocker profile turn these things into total surfboards when you want to get loose in the deep stuff, but a bit of camber underfoot helps give you the bite you need for those steep and tight lines in that windbuffed or crusty snow often found up in the high alpine. Ladies looking for a freeride powder ski that can handle the choppy stuff will love the blend of performance characteristics offered by the K2 Mindbender Alliance 115 C.
The most versatile pair of sticks in Armada's women-specific Trace series, the Trace 98 Ski is your ideal all-mountain ripper for frontside and backside missions. The 98mm shines in deep snow and holds its own on hardpack with a rockered profile that steamrolls pow like it's nobody's business. We like that it's surprisingly light and maneuverable for a ski as stiff and floaty as this one. Not only does it ride well, but it keeps our legs prime for full days, too.
A touring-specific daily driver for the ladies
Versatile 98mm waist can handle any conditions
Rockered tip and tail float through powder
Camber underfoot for carving frontside groomers
Hybrid wood core is playful and maneuverable

If you were the weird kid in your neighborhood, always challenging your friends to swordfights in the backyard, you might just love the Line Skis Blade Skis. But hey, if carving up your local hill left to right, top to bottom is weird, then sign us up. The Line Skis Blade Skis feature edge to edge Gas Pedal Metal™ construction for torsional stability and a razor sharp turn radius that begs you to drop a knee and lean in. Independent Titanal pieces in the tip and tail provide grip, energy, and snap out of the turn, if only to slingshot you into the next. Feed the adrenaline junkie within and lay some trenches on the Blades.
Early Rise™–Tip and tail lift away from the snow to bring the contact points closer to the center of the ski. This increases a ski's lift in deep snow and allows it to engage more quickly on hardpack.
Rocker Profile–3mm Tip / 5mm Camber / 1mm Tail
Directional Flex™–The softer tip floats and initiates turns easily while the stiffer tail provides power, stability and high speed control.
5-Cut™–Five different radiuses are blended into the ski's sidecut. The result? A wide variety of turn shapes and an intuitive feel.
Thin Tip™–Super thin core & sidewall in the tips are 100 grams lighter per pair for reduced swing weight & tip bounce.
Aspen Core–100% Aspen wood for the lightest, most nimble feel.
Gas Pedal Metal™–Titanal focused across the ski width provides increased edge grip and torsional stability while maintaining a lively feel along the length of the ski. Two independent tip and tail Titanal pieces add power and energy.
Sidewall Construction–Ultra-high density Polyethylene vertical walls over the edges to absorb vibrations and provide powerful energy transmission.
Fatty Base | Sintered 1.7mm–High density sintered bases reduce friction against the snow allowing for more speed and better durability.
Fatty Edge | 2.5mm x 2.2mm–30% thicker edge dramatically increases durability and tuning life of these skis.
Stance Back from Center–40 mm
Mounting Distance from Tail–81.9 cm
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
The Line Pandora 104 blends powder and all-mountain freeride into a perfectly versatile ski for those who like skiing anything and everything but want proper float for when the snow gets deep. This ski suits the more adventurous skier who seeks out softer snow and ungroomed terrain but its shape and construction provide great performance all over the mountain. One of the highlights of this ski is just how light it is. Line builds this ski with their Aspenlight core and Carbon Magic Finger Filaments which provide a balance of power and lightness as well as a very energetic flex pattern. By not using heavier additives like metal laminates, this ski really stands out in its category due to its impressively light feel. The Pandora 104 features Line's capwall construction which consists of a vertical sidewall underfoot and a cap construction out in the tips and tails. This gives you solid torsional stiffness and edge grip in the center of the ski, but keeps the swingweight down at the same time by reducing the amount of material in the extremities of the ski. At 104 millimeters under the boot, this ski is certainly on the wider end of the spectrum, but it is narrow enough to provide great firm snow performance. It will float really well in deep snow, especially with its rockered and tapered tip shape, but it retains good torsional stiffness as well as a fairly long effective edge when you want to go carve some turns. Ladies with a thirst for adventure will love the balance of performance characteristics highlighted in the Line Pandora 104.
FLY TWO are born to be different and their behavior in the most committed tricks make them impressive in terms of accessibility. Playgrounds are clearly geared towards practices mixing freestyle and backcountry, coupled with incredible behavior on piste or difficult snow conditions.
