Faction is at the forefront of freestyle and freeride skis, of that there is no question. The brand offer so much choice, and genuinely have something for everyone. If you want to get here, there, and everywhere, whether the conditions are heavenly or horrific, they’re a ski manufacturer that will certainly sort you out.
Don’t do the mundane? You’ll be pleased to know that the Faction brand is anything but boring. These skis can get you out there, and help you to love life on the mountains. The Mana 3 is part of Faction’s new generation of lightweight twin-tip skis, and sits in the middle of the new Mana family.
The designers of the Mana are trying to blur the line between backcountry and all-mountain performance by creating a light, powerful and responsive ski. These skis have also been reinforced in specific areas to ensure weight is saved but strength isn’t compromised. The rubber stomp pads give you that airy floating-feel whilst the super strong edges increase that durability just a little bit more.
