The Curated Take

Adam M, Ski Expert
By the Expert Community

This ski truly could be a one quiver ski. The gas pedal metal laminate design includes a full length of metal through the tip and tail with torsional supports under the binding. The blade optic is a combination of the line vision and the line blade skis. It perfectly combines the playful/freeride shape of the vision while adding the rigidity and responsiveness of the blade. It will hook up hard on groomers and can lay down some hard carves, but also excels off-piste as well. I really noticed as I was charging through hard crud, the gas pedal metal kept the vibrations in control, which helped keep my edges engaged and the ski under control.

It is, however, on the beefier end of skis. I would say it is not for someone who is relatively new to skiing or for someone who doesn't want to think too much about their ski. These skis are built for someone who wants to really charge hard, lean forward, and attack the terrain.

Ideal for
  • This is a hard charging ski that can excel most anywhere inbounds
  • The metal laminate helps dampen vibrations in the ski making it super comfortable at high speeds
  • It can charge through crud and hard pack while still being playful enough to do butters and nose press.
Not ideal for
  • Like I mentioned before, it is on the heavier side of skis
  • They are stiff skis

Tried them at Park City this year and had to have them!

I tried these skis from Jackson's base camp (didn't have them to sell) at Park City and loved them. Can't wait to ski on them next season!

"They're like cheating"

Originally posted at lineskis.com on Mar 1, 2024
I bought these based on several positive online reviews that recommended them as an all-mountain ski. (I'm not in the market for a full "quiver." So, naturally, my first go on these 104 skis was a terrible crusty, icy, crud day. These things powered through everything. At one point I found another gentlemen on the same skis. I asked him what he thought. "They're like cheating." was his reply. I certainly have more conditions to experience on them, and I'm not a necessarily good enough to independently influence anyone's opinion. But as an intermediate+/former GS 210 ski speed fanatic, I can verify that everything I read about them felt true.

I cannot say enough about Taylor. Took an overwhelming task and made it easy to follow, great options and even better pricing. Kind, empathetic, just plain awesome. I will be recommending Taylor and ‘curated’ to everyone I have the pleasure to speak with. My kid is going to be stoked!

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

I’m used to settling for less than optimal feedback from customer service reps and could tell pretty quickly that Grant was More than that. He definitely knew his stuff and took me on a journey of different boards until I felt really comfortable about my purchase. I bought a board based on his recommendation and excited to ride it!
