WsmyersAll in all factions are great skis. If you ski cruddy east coast stuff then you might want to think twice because they are really not that durable. I got a pair and they worked for a whole season with only a delay which I think is asking for too much considering what I put them through. I got the candied 2.0s and loved them. They definitely can ski powder because they have a fat base but not too fat so it stops you from spinning. If you are only skiing park then I don’t think breaking them will be as a worrie but have fun I’m them if you get them, they’re great skis!
whanahan20Yeah, I'm in Utah so I'm lucky enough to not have to worry about crappy conditions. I do ski park most of the time but ever since the whole pandemic I've been exploring in the backcountry. Thanks for the suggestion.
DolanReloadedI watched the faction team video a while ago. They seem like they have a great collective of riders using them, but watching them ski it always looks like maybe the skis are too flexible and not powerful enough. Its cool that they are based in innsbruck at and ch but i wonder if they are actually matching the engineering knowhow of the monsters like armada and atomic and fischer volkl and head.
the faction riders seem to wash out or wheely their landings alot. Idk.
LukeTheWaffleif youre outside the park more than in the park go for a CT 3.0 (2021, the 2020 has a lightweight core and will snap on your ass like it did to me) or a prodigy 4.0. then again the shape for the 2021 ct 2.0 is changed so i have no clue
