Faction Eleven Skis – 2016
115+ MM Freeride Ranking: #06
“Stiff, yet nimble. I’d highly recommend the for hard charging and pow slaying,” said one tester about the new Faction Eleven Skis. A rocker-camber- rocker profi le and dual turn radius— 24 m from boot to tip and 29 m from boot to tail—help achieve that blend of nimbleness and pow dominance. Its poplar and ash core provides a smooth, damp ride. Even with the Eleven’s 115 mm waist, testers were impressed by its carving prowess, noting it rolled nicely from edge to edge. Its stable character was another talking point. “Powered through everything,” said one tester. “Feels like an all-mountain carver but has enough underfoot to keep you giddy when it’s dumping.”
