Faction built the ski out of karuba wood for lightness, and stiffened it up the full carbon weave and a titanal plate underfoot for binding retention. The underfoot also has sidewalls for added durability, and the capped tip and tail decrease weight and increase torsional responsiveness. The top sheet has a glossy finish for snow- and abrasion-resistance.Backcountry-ski best used for ski mountaineering and firm snow. 86mm waist is the skinniest backcountry ski from Faction. Camber underfoot holds an edge on icy snow and steep lines. Surf Zones keep tip and tail over snow while setting skin tracks. Light wood core with woven carbon for a stiff flex and low weight.
