Description Hard charging rippers who pride themselves on throwing a little creativity into their freeski routines will love the Faction Prodigy 3.0 Skis as an everyday driver. With plenty of tail rocker to make switch riding a pleasure, enough surface area to make you grin in anything but 2 feet of blower and a solid build that relishes speed, the Prodigy 3.0 is just what park riders are looking for when they start looking to the top of the mountain.
Rocker Type 390 mm Tip Rocker / 3 mm Camber / 380 mm Progressive Tail Rocker
Flex Medium Stiff Flex: 7 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)
Sidecut Dual Radius Sidecut: Offers two different radii along a single edge. In front, a shorter radius provides quick response and control for tighter turns while a longer radius in the tail section is stable at high speeds. The result is a ski that surfs seamlessly between different turn angles and never drags.
Shape - Directional Twin: A considerably skinnier tail width than 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 without problem. - Surf Zones: Unites rocker and tip taper ensuring these two key features work in harmony. Rocker provides float and facilitates pivoting, while a tapered tip moves the widest part of the ski closer to the center and removes unwanted hooking. Surf Zones promise a floaty, seamless ride in all conditions.
Core Poplar Ash Core: Poplar is a light-colored, durable softwood that flexes and pop nicely with great vibration absorption capabilities. Ash is a heavier hardwood that compliments the Poplar by adding stiffness and durability. This duo provides a good hold on hard snow, a solid base for stomping landings and enough pop and flex to get creative.
Laminates Flax Fibers: Leading the pack of next-gen, low environmental-impact ski materials, these natural composite layers are stronger and lighter than the standard sheets of fiberglass they replace. A biaxial layup of flax fibers ensures excellent dampening and adds all the stiffness and torsional stability you could want from your eco-friendly landing gear.
Sidewalls - Full Strength Sidewall: This construction places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the wood core, edges and topsheet from impacts and outside damage. - Anti Chip Micro Cap: 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.
Binding Compatibility A brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width is ideal.
