I love these skis! They're really fun, durable and inexpensive.
I'm not even kidding when I say these are the best skis I've ever ridden. My brother was so damn jealous he ended up getting the same setup as me. They fee superl solid on jumps and they're really nimble on rails. It's the first time I ski a symmetrical ski so it took me a few days to get used to but after I did I had the sudden urge to make love to my skis.
The Stepups look awesome. The graphics on top of the wood create a nice mix of class and badassery.
"Rip off or steal?"
A steal! Literally because somebody actually stole mine :(
They aren't too expensive and they'll last super long providing nobody takes them from you.
These things are made to get beat up. The only issue I had with them was the bases getting dried up really fast so I kept having to wax them all the time.
I'd say that if you are a big guy looking for a playful but not noodle-y park ski at a great price, look no further.
PS, as of writing this, the 184cm length is still available on evo's outlet for $220! I'm half considering buying a second pair at that price to have when these ones are done.
Great performance. They have really improved my park riding, and they perform great on groomers. I can carve them so hard I touch the ground. I rode them 1 day in powder (heavy heavy powder) and they did alright but you can tell that it's not what the ski was designed for.
I love the design of these skis. The top sheet shows the wood construction of the ski with graphics laid over it and I think it looks sick. One thing that I think would make it better is if the graphics on each ski were different (they're the same). Also it would be cool if they took advantage of the fact that this ski is 100% symmetrical and made the graphics more similar front to back.
I got these on EVO's outlet store for $240 including shipping. Pretty tough to beat that.
I got the 184 size which is perfect for me when center mounted (these skis are symmetrical, so you should mount them center for best performance).
AMAZING. I'm a bigger guy (6'1" 185lb) and for me the flex on these skis is perfect. Stiff enough to be nice and stable at a good speed and on landings but still perfect for buttering. They flex nice and evenly as well due to the skate deck construction. They have a nice pop and I can ollie and nollie higher than any other ski I've ever ridden (in fact I could hardly nollie at all before I got these skis, now it's no problem).
I've only skied them from dec-feb so far but they are holding up well. I put a few nicks in the base the first day I used them because this season has been so bad so far and there were rocks embedded into the snow, but nothing went through the base. Other than that they have held up quite well with hardly any topsheet chips and the ones that are there are very small.
Amazing product that I not only reccomend to a sole park and urban skier but also to a skier that want to take their skis all over the mountain. The Line Step Up's are amazing anywhere you take them and will hold up very well. Get yourself on a pair and enjoy!
The Line Step Up is hands down my favorite park ski I've ridden. Because of what I described in the flex catagory it is the perfect ski for anything you want to ride anywhere on the mountain.
I like the look and I love the feel of the ski.
It is very well priced for the quality of the ski.
I am 5' 9'' and the 177's fit perfect
It has the perfect flex from tip to tail. I've never been on a ski that bends evenly thought out the whole ski. It is a really flex providing really solid landings on big jumps, rails, gnarly urban bomb drops. However the ski is still soft and poppy enough that you can ollie over the highest fences, tree stumps, and fallen skiers. The flex provides the perfect amount of snap to keep the ski really fun and playful combined with just enough stiffness to make even your sketchest landings feel good.
You cant break them. I beat the hell out of them in urban and park everyday for months and the only wear and tear is a few small edge cracks.
