Park skis. They’ve got to be durable, symmetrical or close to it, lightweight, and have a flex that can withstand big jumps without feeling like 2x4s when you lean into ’em. The Faction Idiom Skis, ringing it at 86mm underfoot and featuring a touch of rocker in the tip and tail, are tailor-made for park domination. Faction skis are here to stay, and a lot of that hype has to do with the fact that their skis ride like a dream — the Faction Idiom Skis are certainly no exception.
Rocker / Camber / Rocker – 10 mm of rocker over 150 mm in the tip, 5 mm of camber underfoot, 5 mm of rocker over 100 mm in the tail.
Medium-Stiff Flex – Stable at speed or on big landings, but still playful enough to butter and press.
Symmetrical Shape – Designed to handle identically forward and switch.
Poplar / Beech Core
Cap Construction – Unibody construction is slightly less expensive per ski, but complicated to setup. Still using wood cores the cap construction technique removes the sidewalls to save weight and materials. Rubber is used to dampen vibration and bond the base layers to the core.
Die-Cut PTEX 4000 Base – Used on most Faction Skis. Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax well.
