Alpine Ski Faction Ambit

Ski sold without binding.

It makes no doubt Faction knows how to treat women and we can illustrate this statement with the Ambit ski. Not only it has a great look with an arty topsheet but it’s also perfectly designed to comply with women’s specific needs and shapes. Traditional camber, 86mm waist and symmetrical shape make the ski’s DNA. Get your tricks ready! 

What can the Faction Ambit do? 

With a 5mm camber and a powerful core, needless to say the Ambit is as poppy as it gets. Designed to propel riders off park kickers, this freestyle-oriented women ski is a trick machine. The light construction allows for less swing weight and more air control while the sturdy CAP construction turns it into a bombproof rail destroyer. Its well balanced profile and soft flex pattern enhances the playful feel delivered and allows you to work on your butters. Its liveliness keeps the ski versatile and if it’s a day without tricks, you can ride on piste and get your carving technique improved. The ski is smooth and easy to move around, its twin tip profile enables switch skiing and turns a boring day into moments of joy! If you want to make sure you smile all day, your sole option is called the Ambit. 

Who is the Faction Ambit ski designed for? 

Women-specific freestyle ski designed for intermediate and advanced riders who look for a true twin-tip ski that can cope with jibbing and park shredding but that can also handle smooth arcing on groomers. Expect fun and playfulness!

Structure - Construction

  • CAP Construction  :

    CAP construction with a poplar-ash wood core combined to give lightweight, durable and consistent performance in a more price-conscious ski

  • Poplar & Ash Core  :

    A poplar core with ash "stringers" is used for their complimentary characteristics of dampness and responsiveness. Used on the bulk of the skis, this together with fiberglass above and below the core provide a smooth feel and control in all snow conditions.

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.

Technology

  •  :

    The Rocker, or reverse camber, enhances powder floatation thanks to a bigger surface of contact with the snow. By combining different degrees of rocker with a flat or normal camber, powder performance is improved while piste performance isn't affected.

    10mm rocker rising on 100mm

  • 10/150mm Tip Rocker  :

    The Rocker, or reverse camber, enhances powder floatation thanks to a bigger surface of contact with the snow. By combining different degrees of rocker with a flat or normal camber, powder performance is improved while piste performance isn't affected.

    10mm rocker rising on 150mm

  • 5mm camber  :

    A 5mm camber provides pop and return for a good boost when exiting the turns.

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.

Various

  • Printed Bases
  • Semelle Ptex-4000 bases  :

    Very High density base for an excellent glide performance, wax retention, and resistance to abrasion.

  • Gloss Layer Topsheet
