Product Info

Looking for a dedicated powder touring stick for the deepest of days in the BC? Of course you'd look to one of the Indy brands from North America, where people are dumb enough to actually tour on skis wider than 100mm, right? Nope, it's the maniacs from Verbier who have this covered for 2023 with the Faction La Machine Max Skis. At 126mm in the waist with a ton of tip rocker and weighing less than 2,000 grams per ski, the LMM gets our vote for that special day in Hokkaido or Revelstoke, and we're glad someone had the guts to do it.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker-Camber-RockerTip Rocker: 178 = 480mm, 186 = 480 | Camber: 178 = 2mm, 186 = 2mm | Tail Rocker; 178 = 300mm, 186 = 300mm

Flex

Flex: 6 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

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 Height70mm

Tail Height35mm

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.
