        Overall

        Most versatile fat ski I demo'd during the WSSF. They remind me of the
        Salomon Gun, but have much more grip on ice, and maybe be lighter.

        Performance

        They float just fine in pow, but got bonked around a bit more than some other skis (K2 Missbehaved, Hellbents) in the crud. With their light weight, they were great in the bumps and easy to spin in the park.

        The Heroines stood out amongst all other fat skis on ice. I was shocked by how well they held an edge despite their width and non-insane stiffness. These would be totally at home in the east too.





        Design

        Nice topsheet. Nothing else really stood out.

        Value

        I don't know what these are selling for next year. Definitely worth the free demo.

        Fit

        178cm is 10cm longer than I usually in the east, and around 180cm the skis start taking over from me. However, the Heroines were very light and maneuverable
        in this size. Works for me!

        Characteristics

        Medium! Felt just right for skiing everything. I don't think there was anything park specific about it.

        Durability

        I didn't abuse it much. I would expect Faction to make some tough skis though.
