If you buy a Faction ski, you can go to bed knowing you have made the right decision. Why? Well, because they are one of the coolest brands in skiing and leaders in serving up high-performance freeride and freestyle skis. Not only this, but they are pretty green too; making their skis from locally-sourced and recycled materials. They also like to implement a sustainable wood core in their gear.
The factory where they are produced is run on 100% renewable energy, with 1% of what is on the price tag going towards planet saving initiatives. In a sport where the climate is so important, this should be the norm and it’s good to see brands starting to align with this way of thinking.
The Dancer 3 is designed to maintain its rhythm through all kinds of terrain and conditions. Wide and floaty enough for you to pirouette through powder, strong enough to break dance through the crud and nimble enough to two-step the hard pack; there really is a lot to like about it.
