Product Info

The Swiss have a unique perspective on life. Super cautious and meticulous at times (like getting your car registered), but they let toddlers roam playgrounds basically unattended (their parents are there, but not close). They tend toward the latter approach when it comes to mountain sports, so it figures they'd be the ones to build a real touring ski for kids — the Faction La Machine Grom Skis. The Grom features the same carbon and Paulownia layup as the adult La Machine lineup, so if your kid can fend for themselves on the playground it's high time to get them out on the skintrack.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker-Flat-RockerTip Rocker: 138 = 250mm, 147 = 270mm, 156 = 300mm | Camber: All Sizes = 0 | Tail Rocker: 138 = 150mm, 147 = 160mm, 156 = 180mm

Sidecut

Elliptical SidecutElliptical Sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths, angles and mounting positions.

Shape

Tip Height138 = 48mm, 147 = 54mm, 156 = 60mm

Tail Height138 = 24mm, 147 = 27mm, 156 = 30mm

Core

Lightweight Sustainable Paulownia Wood Core

Laminates

Full Carbon WeaveBetween 8 and 12 strips of carbon, sandwiching either side of the ski’s woodcore, are laid unidirectionally, providing extra stability to the ski, without adding weight to the build. Each carbon strip is woven into the fiberglass to provide strength and stiffness in the full length of the ski.

Phenol Binding Reinforcement Plate

Sidewalls

Microcap Full Strength SidewallMicro-cap construction is a hybrid of a premium, sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile joint that can be prone to chipping.
