Ski Bum Reviews Line Honey Badger 2022 Ski Review - Tough as nails, yet simple in design, the LINE Honey Badger will tackle whatever you put in front of it
If there has ever been a ski more appropriately named, it’s the Line Honey Badger. Named after the creature itself, the Honey Badger is aptly known for being fierce, feisty, and more powerful than its compact size suggests. Line skis knew what they were doing when they dubbed this ski with its name, for these rip sticks know how to tackle the terrain park without an ounce of fear. Eager to please the park-addicted, jib-seeking, rail-slaying freestyle skiers, the Honey Badgers are built with an aspen veneer core and cap construction to give you a ski that is lightweight but highly durable. Combining the best of both worlds, you’re left with a poppy and maneuverable ski that is ready to boost off jumps with ease while also giving you that smooth, playful flex. It isn’t always a success story in the park, that’s why Line incorporated their Fatty Base and Fatty Edge, giving the ski thicker than average components for those icy landings and slick rails. To complement the shape even more, the 92-millimeter width underfoot makes for a reliable platform for all things freestyle, inside or outside the park. The early rise in the tip and tail ensure that if and when you encounter fresh pow or even hardpack, you can leave the rest up to the Honey Badgers. If you consider yourself the kind of skier that spends bell to bell in the park, rest assured these skis will exceed your expectations. Tackle the mountain with confidence and style with the Line Honey Badgers.
