Product Info

In an attempt to hit every nail on the head, Faction crafted the Prodigy 4.0 Skis. This ski will find its stride in powder, but maintains a sense of stability in variable and choppy snow as well. 8 out of 10 on Faction s stiffness scale, this ski was designed as a big mountain weapon for guys who don't pull up short over 30 foot drops or hesitate when the slope angle exceeds 50 degrees. An excellent choice for a skier that knows their way around the mountain, and finds the most thrilling part of the day is when the chips are down and the cameras rolling.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker410mm rocker in the tip, 2mm camber underfoot, and 400mm in the tail.

Flex

Stiff Flex8/10 - Designed to provide bite and stability in steep terrain and variable snow.

Sidecut

Dual-Radius SidecutBorrowed from world cup race skis, two different radii on the one ski - a tighter radius forward of the boot center coupled with a 20% larger sidecut behind - lets Faction increase the edge-to-edge responsiveness so you can carve short turns whilst retaining high speed stability and control through the tail of the ski.

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/Ash Wood Core

Sidewalls

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 3000 BaseUsed on most Faction Skis. Sintered PTEX 3000 base material is more porous and holds wax well.

Graphics

Brushed Topsheet

Binding Compatibility

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