Faction have been killing it for the last couple of years, but 16-17 looks to me like their best collection yet. The street inspired Xero3 fabric clothing line (10k) and the 2L and 3L (not pictured) technical outerwear are both on point. The Candide line has seen improvements to the rocker profiles in all 4 models, with the brand new 4.0 taking centre stage having been on a diet (now 118mm waist). All the models previously using a poplar/ash core are now using poplar beech, meaning smoother more consistent flexes. The Prodigy and Soma (not pictured) now use a similar tapered shape to the Chapter 106 and 116. I'm stoked to get out on the new skis as soon as possible with reviews coming soon, but for now check out what's coming!
