Reviewer Heyman

"A true all-mountain ski is as good off-piste as it is on-piste. Stiff enough to remain stable at top speed, flexible enough for comfort in poor circumstances. It is essential that the perfect all-mountain ski performs well in all conditions."

Pleasant cruiser for the whole mountain


The Line Prophet 85 is one of those skis which is made of compromises that actually work very well. It is flexible enough to turn easily and stiff enough to remain reasonably stable at top speed. It is wide enough to allow the skis to float well in powder snow without loosing too much maneuverability. It carves pretty well on piste, although the natural turn is on the big side. You"ll have to like a 20.0m radius in your all-mountain ski. Short turns and sliding turns are easy as well, while the edge grip in power turns remains perfect.

Compromise vs excellence

A 4 star rating is appropriate for an all-mountain ski this versatile. All aspects of the Prophet 85 are equally good, the perfect compromise you might think. But I would have liked this ski to excel in one or two aspects. To be a susrprisingly sharp carver or to have an inexplicable amount of floatation for example. That would have ensured the 5th star. Now it is a ski that will appeal to a very wide type of skier. From intermediate to advanced, from conservative to rash, from slow to fast. You cannot go wrong with the Line Prophet 85, but will it fill your special needs? Probably not and therefore it is perfect for all those skiers who just want a good all-mountain ski and nothing more.

Line about the Prophet 85

"If you’ve been waiting to step up to a real freeride ski but concerned about quickness, this is your chance to have your cake and eat it too. Rip groomers with the precision, quickness and stability you’ve always loved, plus gain the super natural abilities to lay down carves with confidence in all conditions.", says Line. Well, if you tone down a little what Line says about the Prophet 85, that's a fair description.
