2016/2017 Line Soulmate 92 ski review. OnTheSnow tested this ski as part of its women’s All-Mountain Front Category.

Designed as a bridge between a freeride ski and a carver, the Line Soulmate 92 received its highest tester scores for playfulness, but was favored less for stability. “Best in soft snow where it’s fun, playful and forgiving, but it looses connection to the snow on steeps or hardpack,” says Riley. Construction for this ski includes Line’s Maple Macroblock—two full-length maple stringers surrounded by aspen wood. Line’s Thin Tip has early tip rise and is literally a soft-flexing “thin” tip profile for swing weight reduction and flotation. Geometry of the 92-mm-waisted ski incorporates five radii shapes in the overall sidecut. “The tails held onto turns on the groomers, but it’s a solid cruising ski for friendly snow,” says Balandina.
