They say

We say

Line have taken last years Prophet 100, reduced the waist width and have used a new cap wall sidewall to give the ski added grip and stability. The changes have made a great ski even better, it retains that ability to deliver a smooth ride while being versatile enough to switch turn shapes with ease. One of the features that has always been part of the character of the Prophets is its ease of use, it’s a ski you can just go and ride, with no nasty surprises. It’s a strong all round performer it pivots well and is easy to blast through heavier conditions. Overall, a well balanced ski that works well in any backcountry conditions.
