This article is part of The Showroom—a curated selection of gear presented by some of FREESKIER’s favorite brand partners. Here is a closer look at the latest from Faction.
Dancer 2 – $749
The Dancer 2 delivers pure, all-mountain freeride bliss. Two razor-thin sheets of metal complement the sustainably-sourced wood core for the ideal blend of up-tempo energy, lightweight stability and full-confidence handling. The versatile, 96-mm waist suits all conditions and you’ll dance above the chop thanks to the perfect touch of rocker.
Dancer 3 – $799
The quiver-killer for freeriders who frequently chase bigger lines yet require a ski that excels in all conditions and terrain. It floats above pow and ‘busts a move’ through crud with full confidence, while maintaining the ability to trench on hardpack. Two razor-thin metal layers provide smooth stability without weighing you down.
Dancer 3X – $799
The one-stop-shop for freeriders who often shred big lines, yet need a ski that excels in all terrain / conditions. Deftly dance across firm snow one minute, blast through chop the next, then lace hop-turns down your favorite couloir. Flow to your own rhythm, make art through your movements, Dancer is the freeskier’s delight.
Mana 2 – $699
At 102-mm underfoot, Mana 2 provides maximum versatility for those who see the mountain through a freeride and freestyle lens. This premium, high-performance twin-tip pops off booters, butters over rollers and whips effortlessly between turns. Its light weight keeps your legs fresh, and its “stomp pad” absorbs shock on big sends.
Mana 3X – $799
The freestyle-inspired Mana 3X is the quiver-killer for those who crave a playful, surfy ride. The lightweight, sustainably harvested poplar core is complemented by generous rocker and a hint of camber, resulting in a ski that presses and pivots with nimble, catch-free confidence, without sacrificing edge hold and stability at speed.
