What's with all these rockered park skis? Sometimes you want that real feel, solid popping, edge-gripping ski experience. You want to go fast, air big out of the pipe, and feel comfortable as you're nuking into that 60-foot park table. Enter the Faction Silas Skis. These skis fall on the stiffer side of the spectrum, so when you get a little backseat coming out of that switch 9, you won't fold back. Squat things out, go big, and still have the maneuverability to crush the rail line.
5 mm Camber Maximum rebound and quick turn initiation.
Stiff Reliable at high speeds and in choppy conditions.
Short Turning Radius Quick and nimble edge-to-edge.
Freestyle Twin Symmetrical construction for incomparable forward and switch riding and landings.
Poplar / Ash Core Faction's standard core material. Poplar is a medium-weight, damp, vibration-absorbing softwood. Ash is a heavier hardwood that compliments the Poplar by increasing stiffness, responsiveness and providing a solid base for the binding screws.
Fibreglass Laminates like fibreglass are used to compliment the properties of the core material by increasing torsional strength, edge-grip and rebound.
Carbon Reinforcing Used to provide additional strength to the core against use on rails.
Gloss Lacquered ICP2112 Topsheet Used on most Faction skis, gloss lacquered ICP2112 topsheets are colourfast and look great. The lacquer is applied to the ski after pressing.
Sandwich Construction Used on most Faction skis. A traditional manufacturing method that provides strength, durability, good grip and edge hold. Rubber is used to dampen vibration and bond the base layers to the core.
Die-Cut Ptex 4000 Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax better than PTEX 2000.
1.8 mm Edges Used on 99% of Faction skis, the 1.8 mm hardened steel edges are strong and dependable.
Silkscreen Printing Used on 90% of Faction skis, silkscreen printing provides bright, strong colours that help our skis pop in-store and on-snow. Unlike the sublimation process used by many competitors, very little waste is created using this method, and water-based inks are used to reduce environmental impacts.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
