Product Info

Not tiny, and not faint-hearted by any means, the Faction La Machine Micro Skis are merely the narrowest and arguably the most adventurous touring skis in Faction's new lineup. Feather-light and ready to devour vertical like no one's business, the Micro uses a light but strong Carbon fiber weave over a Paulownia wood core with a user-friendly rocker-flat-rocker shape that loves all snow types.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker-Flat-RockerTip Rocker: 156 = 300mm, 163 = 320mm, 170 = 330mm, 177 = 340mm | Camber: All Sizes = 0 | Tail Rocker: 156 = 180mm, 163 = 190mm, 170 = 200mm, 177 = 210mm

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 Height60mm

Tail Height30mm

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.
