The Line Honey Badger TBL is a freestyle weapon crafted to bring the stoke to the whole mountain. With the Carbon Ollie band and aspen veneer core, these skis are super poppy and perfect for park shredding. Lock into rails, stomp tricks, or play in softer snow with the stable 92mm waist. But don't be fooled, they aren't just for the park - they're a blast to ride all over the mountain. And with Taylor Lunquist's fearless style and boundary-pushing drive, this is the go-to ski for those who live for the thrill. Unleash your inner shredder and redefine what's possible with the LINE Honey Badger TBL.
Terrain Type & Ability Level
It's dialled-in for freestyle, whether in the park, natural features or urban locations. The flex is soft, making it ideal for butters and presses, but thanks to the quality build and decent camber underfoot it still feels good on jumps.
This is a ski that will perfectly suit park or urban skiers, meaning it is ideal for dome and dryslope regulars wanting a light, tough and fun ski, for jibs, jumps and rails, more so than many freestyle skis that are bigger and heavier. It won't suit an all mountain skier as it doesn't have the grip on hard snow or the width for powder seekers, but it will make the right choice for skiers looking for something park specific with light handling and a poppy feel.
94mm underfoot works in a variety of conditions, narrow enough for medium and long radius turns and with the width for some float away from the pistes. Early Rise rocker assists with the ride in soft snow and the Early Taper creates long tips and tails for smoother hadnling when conditions are rough.
Early Rise at the tip and tail lift them away from the snow to bring the contact points closer to the centre of the ski. This increases the ski's lift in deep snow and allows it to engage more quickly on hardpack when rolled over on edge.
An Aspen Veneer Core uses aspen stringers to create a lightweight, snappy and engaged feel. This works perfectly with the Carbon Ollieband, pre-stretched carbon stringers running down the ski centre for added pop and play.
Any ski that is aimed at jibbing and playing-about needs to be tough, and just because the Honey Badger is light doesn't mean that Line have skimped on the durability. In fact, the opposite is true. 4D Fibrecap construction uses 4 directions of fibreglass, woven across the top of the core for added durability, and a cap construction for toughness. Thin Tips help keep the weight down by using a thin core and sidewall in the tip and tail, saving 100grams a pair for reduced swing weight. The textured tougher top sheet materials resist scratches and abuse for longer, protecting the look and life of the ski.
Fatty Base and Edge
30% thicker base and edge, 2.2mm wide x 2.5mm high steel edges and 1.7mm thick base dramatically increase durability and tuning life of the skis.
The same flex pattern in front and behind your boot conforms to terrain equally riding forward and backwards.
Carbon Magic Fingers
A wide array of carbon stretching from tip to tail for added stability without sacrificing weight.
EB tester’s comments: Laz (Milton Keynes) Fun freestyle ski that holds its own on and off piste and way more stable at high speeds than I thought it would be.
