Line Men's Mr Pollard's Opus Backcountry Skis were designed by Eric Pollard for those in search of the steepest and deepest terrain. Over a decade of Eric's visionary backcountry freestyle skiing and ski designing has lead to the creation of the most versatile freestyle powder ski on earth. With lower, lighter tips for less plow & bounce. Also 20% more Active Edge™ for more grip and less slip!
Mr Pollard's Opus is constructed with 2 full length Maple stringers surrounded by Aspen for the best of both worlds, with P-Tex plastic walls over the edges to absorb vibrations for a smooth & solid feel. Every bit of Line's geometric technology has been thrown in too. Early rise in the tip starts even earlier to effortlessly stay on top of the snow without needing to sit back, also providing easier turn initiation. The widest point of the sidecut also starts tapering ealier in the tip to reduce tail drag and hooking in powder. Finally 5 different sizes of sidecut radius shapes are blended into one, for intuitive control and unlimited turn shapes.
This ski wouldn't be an Opus without Super Powers. The Super thin core & sidewall in the tips are lighter to reduce swing weight and tip bounce. The FATTY Base & Edge are thicker to dramatically increase the durability and tuning life of your skis. With a Symmetric Flex, the same flex pattern in-front and behind your boot conforms to terrain equally, whether riding forward and backwards.
We recommend pairing this flat ski with the Marker Griffon binding
