Sakana - The yearning for turning continues with the award-winning LINE Sakana. With a versatile 105mm waist and the signature swallowtail design, the Sakana offers unmatched hard-snow bite coupled with deep snow float. You all might have thought we were crazy when we introduced this freak; see what you’ve been missing.
“Fish shapes - I grew up skiing directional skis. Skis with little sidecut that were super stiff, but still pretty fun.But I felt limited by those skis. It’s how I ended up all those years ago working on developing and rethinking ski design in general. In the last couple of years, I’ve been inspired by the non-traditional fish snowboards out there, and it made me reexamine directional skis. And whenPollard’s meticulous design process at it’s earliest stage.we introduced swallowtail skis – with both thePescado and Sakana – I wanted to harness the positives of the directional skis – stability at speed,long effective edge, and edge grip – into shapes and designs that still allowed me to ollie, butter,and play with turn shape.Fish shapes”.-ERIC POLLARD
Swallow tail - A dramatic tail knockout de-couples the farthest reaches of the effective edge while simultaneously forcing the tail of the ski down in soft snow. The result is a ski that can be ridden at shorter lengths without sacrificing performance
Partly Cloudy Core - A blend of lightweight Paulownia and Maple creating the best strength to weight ratio in our line.
5CUT - Five different radiuses are blended into the ski’s sidecut. The result? A wide variety of turn shape and an intuitive feel
