Product Info

Whether you're playing in the tight trees down low, or opening up some bigger turns in the alpine, the Faction Chapter 106 Skis will feed the beast inside looking for a hard-charging, variable snow gobbling, mind-bending ski experience. With a versatile all-mountain oriented turning radius, and a healthy dose of rocker in the tip and tail, this all-mountain twin is meant to be the quiver of one you've been looking for. Featuring a micro-cap for added protection and durability, the Faction Chapter 106 Skis will push you to air out that backy and spin that windlip you've been eyeing without sacrificing performance in the dicey, blown out terrain looming in the run-out.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker10 mm of rocker over 200 mm in the tip, 2 mm of camber underfoot, 5 mm of rocker over 150 mm in the tail.

Flex

Stiff FlexDesigned to provide bite and stability in steep terrain and variable snow.

Shape

Transition Zone TechnologyFaction's "Blended Transition Zones" use complex curve geometries where both positive/negative sidecut and where rocker/camber meet to make turn initiation fluid yet the whole ski more stable and controllable in all conditions.

Core

Poplar / Beech Core

Sidewalls

Sandwich ConstructionUsed on most of Faction's 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.

Micro-Cap ProtectionContinuing efforts to improve chip-resistance in their skis, Faction incorporated a 'micro' cap where the topsheet meets the sidewall on sandwich constructed skis.

Base

Die-Cut PTEX 4000 BaseUsed on most Faction Skis. Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax well.

Brushed Topsheet

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
