THE VERDICT

There were some passionate arguments about the benefits--or not--of Line's Supenatural 92. Some testers said it surprised them with its performance, especially its maneuverability and ease of initiation, especially in the bumps and the trees. Others felt it was too easy to overski, and become unstable quickly as soon as you got it up to high speeds. For younger all-mountain skiers who want  performance without that race feel (and some sick graphics) this could be a go-to ski.

FULL REVIEW

Line’s Supernatural 92 is built with the brand’s lighter “Thin Tip” technology and early rise for an ease of initiation and an almost melodic swingweight that easily rolls into turns. The stiffer tail supplied added stability in the steeps and trees. Bumps were also a blast with this ski.

As we stated in the verdict, however, the heavy skiing racer types and East Coast ringers in our test group didn’t have much good to say about this ski. The chief dings were that it didn’t carve as well as the rest of the class, and lost stability at higher speeds. Our overall take is that is a good ski (at an ever better price) for the newer generation of all-mountain skiers who want to throw a little more freestyle fun into their lines.
