Line Supernatural 92 ski review, 2017/2018 men's All-Mountain Front Category, from our equipment experts at powered by Masterfit.

No other brand can match Line’s irreverent attitude, its tongue in cheek and thumb in The Man’s eye. Behind this just-us-wacky-kids façade, Line is a serious ski maker that applies old school tech to new school shapes. The Supernatural 92 is a case in point, a traditional wood and glass structure applied to a five-point sidecut and mildly rockered forebody. Given Line’s anything-goes ethos, you might expect the Supernatural 92 to be twin tipped, center mounted and more likely to drift than carve, but you’d be wrong on all counts. As an all-glass ski with 4mm of camber underfoot, the Supernatural 92 is a showcase for what skis of this uncomplicated construction can do: pounce from turn to turn, the glass behaving like a coiled spring when pressured, zinging the skier across the fall line and setting up the next turn. A powder ski that secretly loves to carve, the Supernatural 92 responds to light pressure and low edge angles, making it perfect for lighter skiers. “Really carries the turn across the hill,” noted Kevin K. from Footloose. “Powerful on edge through crud. Very surprised!”
