Line Supernatural 92 2017 ReviewOctober 22, 2016
- Easy to turn
- Ok on piste
- Playful feel
- Forgiving flex
- Not powerful
- Unstable at high speeds
- Did not do any one thing exceptionally well
- Kind of planky
- Lacked energy
Line's Supernatural 92 sparked a spirited debate last season between testers who loved its forgiveness and playfulness in the bumps and in soft snow, and testers who decried its lack of stability at speed and weak edge hold. This season, the number of haters grew. A fairly uninspiring ski, the 92 is best for lighter off-piste skiers who don't want to work too hard wherever they go.
Line’s Supernatural 92 was supposed to be redesigned for better hardpack performance this season, but our testers found it especially lacking in that regard, with less confidence in firm conditions and minimal edge hold. Early rise in the tip and the tail make it easy to initiate and slarve around in soft snow, but bring it up to speed in any conditions and it starts to feel out of control.
A fun, playful ski for lighter skiers who prefer soft snow. Not for advanced skiers who want more stability and hold.Continue Reading
