Hard-charging rippers who pride themselves on throwing a little creativity into their Freeski routines will love the Faction Prodigy 3.0 Skis as an everyday driver. With plenty of tail rocker to make switch riding a pleasure, enough surface area to make you grin in anything but 2 feet of blower (we know, you'd be grinning anyway, just deeper down), and a solid build that relishes speed, the Prodigy 3.0 is just what park riders are looking for when they start looking to the top of the mountain.
Poplar and ash core:
Poplar is a soft, light-coloured wood with good flex and pop, as well as a great ability to absorb vibrations. Ash is a heavier and harder wood that combines well with poplar because it provides more rigidity and durability. This blend offers excellent hard snow edge hold and a solid platform for big receptions, with plenty of pop and flex to unleash your creativity.
Flax fibre is at the forefront of the new generation of eco-friendly materials used to make skis. The natural composite layers made from it are stronger and lighter than the traditional fibreglass layers used until now. The biaxial flax fibre layers provide excellent vibration absorption and offer all the stiffness and torsional stability you would expect from your gliding tool while being more environmentally friendly.
Full Strength Sidewall:
The full-strength sidewall is a structure that applies layers of protective material along the edges of the sidewall, between the edge and the upper topsheet. The edges offer the best possible stability and grip when the ski goes through a turn, while protecting the wooden core, edges and cover sheet from any external impacts and damage.
The dual-radius sidecuts combine two radii on the one edge. On the front of the ski, the smaller radius enables the best responsiveness and control for short turns, while the bigger radius on the back of the ski offers maximum stability at high speed. This gives a ski that "surfs" smoothly whatever the curve angle and doesn't hunt unintentionally.
SurfZone technology is designed to combine the Rocker with the tapered shape of the tips to ensure that these two key characteristics are in perfect harmony. The Rocker provides lift and helps in the pivoting of the ski, while the Tapered Tip allows the widest part of the ski to be closer to the centre and thus reduce the risk of unwanted gripping by the edge. This technology gives an excellent lift and a gentle feel, whatever the conditions.
The micro cap is a hybrid construction that takes a premium edged sandwich construction, and fuses it to a lightweight and durable cap construction. Thanks to the micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides outstanding edge performance and torsional stability while the topsheet partially covers the edge, protecting the brittle edge that could otherwise flake off if there are shocks.
