Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker300 mm of of rocker in the tip and tail, 2 mm of camber located underfoot.

Flex

Medium-Stiff Flex6/10 - Stable at speed or on big landings, but still playful enough to butter and press.

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/Beech Wood CoreGreat hold on hard snow with a light and snappy feel.

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.

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.

Base

Silkscreen PTEX 4000 BaseSintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax better.

Graphics

Gloss TopsheetThicker and harder than previous topsheets, IC8210 has a natural high-gloss finish which avoids the need for lacquer and helps the ski look better for longer. Better for the workers in the factory and better for the environment. A small but highly impactful change.
