The iconic Line Skis Chronic Skis received a complete redesign for the 2018/2019 season.
Now with a slightly wider footprint, re-imagined rocker profile, and a more playful flex pattern, this year's Chronics are poised to take their fun and jibby nature to the far reaches of the terrain park.
A true freestyle ski that's been continuously refined by Line since its inception, the Line Skis Chronic Skis were born to scratch your itch!

If you’re wondering why the Line Chronic seems so familiar, it’s because it’s been around since 2005. That’s thirteen years of ski evolution under its belt. While the Chronic has been a go-to park ski in year’s past, the 2018-19 version boasts a wider footprint, redesigned five-point radius, new shape and updated rocker profile. In the words of Bob Barker, “It’s a brand new car!” This allows the new Chronic to play, pop, stomp and change direction in any environment you throw at it. “A legend for a reason!” exclaimed Adrian Bouthot, happily. “Super fun to jib the whole mountain and tranny find all damn day. Took it through some spicy crud, and it performed really well, staying stable and powering through the garbage.”
Early Rise™ – Tip and tail lift away from the snow to bring the contact points closer to the center of the ski. This increases a ski's lift in deep snow and allows it to engage more quickly on hardpack.
Rocker Profile – 2mm Tip / 5mm Camber / 2mm Tail
Symmetric Flex™ – The same flex pattern in front and behind your boot conforms to terrain equally riding forward and backwards.
Flex Rating (1 Soft - 8 Stiff) – 5
5-Cut™ – Five different radiuses are blended into the ski's sidecut. The result? A wide variety of turn shapes and an intuitive feel.
Lengths: 164, 171, 178 and 185
Durable and lightweight freestyle ski for skiers who take their show out of the park. New design for this season with a changed up profile and wider waist.
Thin Tip™ – Super thin core & sidewall in the tips are 100 grams lighter per pair for reduced swing weight & tip bounce.
Maple Macroblock Core – Solid maple under foot with lightweight aspen at the tips for durability and reduced swing weight.
Capwall™ Construction – The best of both worlds! Cap on the top for light and playful performance with sidewall over the edge for added protection.
Fatty™ Base – 30% thicker base. 1.7mm thick base dramatically increases durability and tuning life of these skis.
Fatty™ Edge – 2.2 x 2.5mm edge for increased durability and tuning life.
Tuff Top™ – Textured tougher top materials for more abuse, less scratches and a longer, better looking life for the investment on your feet.
Stance Back from Center – -30mm
Mounting Distance from Tail – 86.1cm
Binding Compatibility - We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
