About Faction Prodigy 1.0 2021 skis
This Poplar-cored, freestyle twin, has buckets of pop and flex while maintaining real performance on the downhill. The directional shape ensures that you have more control throughout your turn and can blend those carves into butters easily. A bombproof set of sticks that lay the tracks for modern-day, do-it-all park skis. Designed & tested at Faction's home in Verbier, Switzerland, handmade in Europe at the finest manufacturing facilities in the world. Built to last.
You'll love this ski if: You want to hit the park with a shape that is stable and forgiving, yet easier to wash out the turn; You like to carve and slarve; You like to occasionally land and ski backwards; You like to butter and work on tricks. Progression is the name of your game.
A 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.
Unites 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.
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 a park ski and also have enough torsional stability to grip impressively on the downhill.
Full Strength Sidewall
This 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.
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 2.5 mm Edges
Extra 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.
