In Depth Staff Reviews:
Playful, poppy, prodigies.

2020 Faction Skis Highlights
Faction beefs up the Prodigy 2.0 from a 96mm waist to a 98mm waist. The1.0, 3.0, and 4.0 are back with rad new topsheets, designed by Parade Studio.

2019 Faction Candide 1.0 Description:
New sizes for 2019! Are powder days great because they mean soft landings and fewer people in the park? Do you think about skiing every time you see a long, flat handrail?

A carbon plate underfoot handles lands off rails and airs, reinforcing the ski and helping you stomp your tricks and ski away. Poplar and Beech in the core give the ski snap and responsiveness, and on any day, the CT 1.0 will also be fun when you rip runs across the mountain between park laps. Don't be silly. Just send it.
