POLLARD'S ONE SKI QUIVER The 2012 Line Sir Francis Bacon ski has been completely re-designed by Eric for a level of quickness & versatility previously considered impossible in this width, yet with enough float to be worthy of Pollard?s name. Its new break through lower Early Rise? tip geometry PLANES INSTEAD OF PLOWS in the pow, while the length of Early Taper? has actually been reduced vs. past years to put much more Active Edge? length in contact with the snow for MORE GRIP & LESS SLIP. The Bacon?s new smooth reliable flex pattern feels like an extension of your feet, literally carving on a dime as well as it can float in the powder. This is the next level of Pollard approved fun, for everywhere on the mountain.
