Advanced freeride skier
Craig's rating of this ski:
Considering his skiers profile:
"Powder bump runs with numerous face shots, creamy untracked pow turns, and even huge carve turns on empty groomed runs at the beginning of the day are my favorite. I am not a high speed skier."

To all my reviews
Top pick for tested skis in this width
I am writing quick reviews for 13 new 2016-17 freeride skis that I rode during the SIA demo days. Eight of these skis are in the near 115mm underfoot width. Conditions were soft, with 12 inches falling on the previous two days. Some face shots in the bumps on the morning of the first day, cut up groomers to test stability, and skied off areas to check edge grip.
The Supernatural 115 is a very good carver, for short, and medium radius turns. Long radius turns at speed were good, with moderate stability for a ski with (die cut titanal), maple stringers, and aspen layup.
Excellent for this width, quick turning with just a quick roll of the ankles and knees. Great dampening, with a well damped fiberglass fell rather than metal laminate. Kicked up some nice face shots during the first morning of testing. Stiffer tail reminds you to keep your weight out of the back seat, based on this tune.
The Line Supernatural 115 has average float, but with great dampening, transitions in and out of powder stashes with ease.
- Test size 186cm.
- Marker demo bindings with metal plates under toe and heel, offer added weight, stiffness, and dampening, compared to fixed bindings.
- Flex: medium
- Length: ideal
- Weight: moderately heavy-heavy, 2470 g/ski for 179cm.
Line about the Supernatural 115
"The Supernatural 115 is a true powder ski that rips the hardpack with power, dampness and stability while maintaining a level of intuitive agility simply not found on other big mountain skis. With the Early Rise™, Early Taper™ and Shockwall™ sidewall, you'll, experience a more precise and stable downhill ride on all terrain through whatever Mother Nature decides to throw at you", says Liberty.
