Product Info

A pow ski with a penchant for new school fun, the Faction Prodigy 4.0 Skis have plenty of width and surface area for the deep days, but keep things smooth and surfy for those who know there's more than one way to bend a turn. This widest of Prodigies shares the same bomber construction as its narrower brethren; a snappy poplar core with a hybrid sandwich-cap construction.

Product Details

Rocker Type

445mm Tip Rocker / 3mm Camber / 355mm Tail Rocker

Flex

Flex Rating8 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Sidecut

Elliptical SidecutMade 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 results in seamless turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths and angles.

Shape

Directional TwinA considerably skinnier tail width than the tip provides ultimate downhill performance for attacking the mountain. A twin tip in the tail encourages playfulness and freestyle attitude, meaning you can ride switch without problem.

Surf ZonesUnites rocker and tip taper ensuring these two key features work in harmony. Rocker provides float and facilitates pivoting, while a tapered tip moves the widest part of the ski closer to the center and removes unwanted hooking. Surf Zones promise a floaty, seamless ride in all conditions.

Core

Poplar CorePoplar is a light-colored, medium-weight, durable softwood that flexes and pops nicely as well as having a whole load of vibration absorption capabilities. Used as the only wood in this core, it allows the ski to pop, butter and stomp like a park ski and also have enough torsional stability to grip impressively on the downhill.

Sidewalls

Anti-Chip Micro CapA 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.

Full Strength SidewallThis construction places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the wood core, edges and topsheet from impacts and outside damage.

Edges

XL 2.5mm EdgesExtra edge thickness gives the skier a pair of skis that absorb shock and impact much better than skis with standard edges. The result is a ski with a much higher life expectancy.

Additional Features

Scratch Resistant Topsheet

Binding Compatibility

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