Poplar, a light, durable softwood, provides flex, pop, and vibration absorption. It enables all-mountain freestyle skiing, combining pop and has enough torsional stability for a solid downhill grip.
Dual Span Titanal
Titanal is a robust, isotropic metal perfect for freeride skis, ensuring strength in all directions, excelling on edges, tackling bumps, and providing stability in varied snow. Ideal chassis for your dream ski.
We are working with Faction's production partners to eliminate material waste. We now mix base, sidewall and top sheet material scraps back into the raw material used for production, reducing carbon emissions while ensuring the same level of quality & durability.
Locally Sourced Materials
In an effort to reduce the impact of Faction's supply chain, we strive to source materials from European companies that are based near Faction's factories.
1% For The Planet
We donate 1% of all sales to approved environmental non-profits. 1% for the Planet’s mission is to build, support and activate an alliance of businesses that are financially committed to mitigating human-driven climate change.
Sustainable Wood Cores
Faction's poplar, beech and ash cores are sourced from the forests that are growing near Faction's European factories, eliminating the carbon cost of transporting raw materials across great distances.
100% Renewable Energy Factory
This ski is produced in a cutting-edge facility that runs on electrical power that is 100% renewable. The factory no longer uses oil, resulting in annual CO2 emissions reductions of a whopping 10 million kilograms.
XL 2.5mm Edges
The 2.5mm edges stack an extra 25% of the height on top of Faction's already super-durable standard 2.0mm edges. This extra steel gives the rider a pair of skis that are going to take more abuse and last longer.
Full Strength Sidewall
A construction that places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the top sheet. Sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the woodcore and edges.
The Elliptical 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, the shorter radius results in easier turn initiation.
Micro-cap is a hybrid of premium sandwich sidewall fused with durable lightweight cap construction. Provides strong edge hold, and torsional stability, and protects joints prone to chipping.
Enjoy stability in front of, and behind the binding area to provide solid edge hold. Then, we transition to smooth, progressive flex in the tips and tails to easily absorb all the different bumps. This flex allows for progression and an easier turn initiation and finish.
High Resistance Topsheet
We use the highest quality top sheet material available, and we test it rigorously to ensure it stands up to regular abuse. Sourced near Faction's factories in Europe for a friendlier supply chain.
