Faction La Machine Mini 2 Mens Snow Skis 2023
Right around 100mm underfoot is the most versatile width for general touring, and Faction nails it with the Faction La Machine Mini Skis. Don't worry about the "Mini" moniker, these things come in normal lengths and 99mm is "mid-fat" in most of the touring world - the best compromise between float and lightness, and the best overall width for a mix of winter and spring/summer trips. Damn light and very versatile, the Mini promises to get you to those far away places you've dreamed about making tracks in.

Lightweight Sustainable Paulownia Wood Core
Full Carbon Weave – Between 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 fiberglass to provide strength and stiffness in the full length of the ski.
Phenol Binding Reinforcement Plate
Microcap Full Strength Sidewall – Micro-cap construction is a 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.
