Faction Prodigy 1X Womens Snow Skis 2023
Over, under and sometimes across from the feet of the most successful freestyle athletes at last year's Olympic Games, the Faction Prodigy 1X Skis are a "business as usual" choice for skiers interested in dominating big air and slopestyle comps, and deserve special consideration if that's the direction you're heading. A narrower, lighter 88mm platform spins better and still has the guts to stick tough landings, while the Faction-approved directional twin profile gets the nod not only on the jump course but the rest of the mountain as well.
Rocker-Camber-Rocker – Tip Rocker: 158 = 280mm, 164 = 290mm, 171 = 300mm | Camber: All Sizes = 3mm | Tail Rocker: 158 = 220mm, 164 = 230mm, 171 = 240mm
Flex Rating – 7 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)
Elliptical Sidecut – Elliptical Sidecut is made 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 result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths, angles and mounting positions.
Directional Twin – A considerably skinnier tail width than in the tip provides ultimate downhill performance for attacking the mountain. A twin tip in the tail encourages playfulness and freestyle attitude, meaning you can ride switch with ease.
Tip Height – 64mm
Tail Height – 50mm
Sustainable Poplar-Ash Wood Core – Poplar is a light-colored, durable softwood that flexes and pops nicely as well as having great vibration absorption capabilities. Ash is a heavier hardwood, that complements Poplar by adding stiffness and durability. This duo provides excellent hold on hard snow, a solid base for stomping landings and enough pop and flex for creativity.
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.
XL 2.5mm Edges – Fractions of a millimeter might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges stack an extra 25% of height on top of our already super-durable standard 2.0mm edges. This extra steel gives the rider a pair of skis that are going to take more abuse and last longer.
