Prodigy 3 skis 2024
About Faction Prodigy 3 skis 2024
With regards to the Prodigy 3, our goal was to make a super-durable ski that could be enjoyed by absolutely anyone, in any conditions. The ski is intuitive, perfectly balanced and stable. Its 106 mm waist is highly adept in both packed and pow conditions, making the Prodigy 3 a true quiver killer. With It's Directional Twin shape and Elliptical Sidecut, the ski is delightfully user-friendly, ideal for the avid skiers who are looking to progress their skills and enhance their experience in nature’s finest playground.
You'll love this ski if:
- You want a playful ski for all conditions, including powder
- You want a ski that carves hard, but also easily pivots and smears
- You love to butter and occasionally ski or land backwards
- You are always on the look-out for the little pocket of pow that didn't get skied
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, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths, angles and mounting positions.
A considerably skinnier tail width than in 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 with ease.
Sustainable Poplar Wood Core
Poplar 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 an all-mountain freestyle ski and also have enough torsional stability to grip impressively on the downhill.
Microcap Full Strength Sidewall
Micro-cap construction is a 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.
XL 2.5mm Edges
Fractions of a millimeter might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges stack an extra 25% of height on top of our 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.
