Product Info

The Faction La Machine Skis hark back to a bygone era when fatties ruled the slopes. These pow-zookas are designed to tackle to deepest of the deep, the fluffiest of the fluff, and it's safe to say that with a 126mm waist under your feet, you won't be complaining about float. Whether you're booking your tickets to Hokkaido, your dream heli trip in the Chugach, or doing your snow dance back home, these skis are ready for the white room.

Product Details

Rocker Type

480mm Tip Rocker / 2mm Camber / 300mm Tail Rocker

Extended Tip and Tail RockerExtended Rocker is a reverse camber shape in the tip and tails, which along with waist width, is the most important element in providing float in fresh snow. Extended rocker also makes pivoting and turn initiation easier and means you have less chance of catching an edge.

Flex

Flex Rating7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Sidecut

Elliptical SidecutMade up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail results in seamless turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths and angles.

Shape

Surf ZonesUnites 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.

Core

Lightweight Pauwlonia / Poplar Wood Core

Laminates

Full Carbon WeaveBetween 8 and 12 strips of Carbon, sandwiching either side of the ski’s woodcore, are laid unidirectionally, providing extra stability to the ski, without adding weight to the build. Each carbon strip is woven into the fibre glass to provide strength and stiffness in the full length of the ski.

Titanal Binding PlateWhen you're on a day-long touring trip in the backcountry, you need to rely on your gear. Titanal reinforcement plates are laid up on top of the lightweight cores ensuring that your binding screws hold. This one-piece design fits alpine and touring bindings, adding trustworthy durability to these lightweight cores.

Sidewalls

Anti-Chip Micro CapA 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.

Full Strength SidewallThis 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.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
