Faction Heroine 2017

Alpine Ski Faction Heroine

Ski sold without binding.

Wanna be the next heroine who’s going to save the world? Good luck with that… The only thing we can do for you it make you the next heroine who’s going to slay the mountain. If you recognize yourself better, then please meet the Heroine ski by Faction, the most versatile women ski in the line. Tip and tail rocker, 90mm waist, traditional camber, it has everything needed to perform! 

What can the Faction Heroine ski do? 

You will hardly find anything more agile that this. Freestyle-oriented, this twin-tipped ski can ride switch or regular as if it was easy. The tip and tail rockers bring manoeuverability to its best and facilitate pivot in difficult conditions. This means you can choose your favorite line on the mountain and stick to it no matter what. On groomed snow, you can rely on a firm edge grip and a rock-solid stability at all speeds. The rockers make the ski super smooth and adjustable to any style. If you are more of a freerider, then you’ll appreciate these very same rockers maximising floatation and turning abilities. The 90mm waist provides added support on soft snow and makes the ski truly enjoyable off piste. And if this is still not enough, then go for a few park laps. The poppy and lively construction will help you put more tricks into your bag. The Heroine is the best do-it-all performer you can dream of, bar none. 

Who is the Faction Heroine ski designed for? 

We recommend it to women skiers who want a one-ski-quiver that can deal with all terrains and conditions the mountain has to offer. The Heroine will keep your progression going and your fun bar to the max!

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

  • Dual Radius Sidecuts  :

    Borrowed from world cup race skis, two different radius on the one ski- a tighter radius forward of the boot center coupled with a 20% larger sidecut behind- lets us increase the edge-to-edge responsiveness so you can carve short turns whilst retaining high speed stability and control through the tail of the 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.

  • Transition zone technology  :

    Our "Blended Transition Zones" use complex curve geometries where both positive/negative sidecut and where rocker/camber meet to make turn initiation fluid yet the whole ski more stable controllable in all 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

  • 10/200mm Tip Rocker  :

    Skis featuring a rockered tip and a traditional or flat camber float better on soft snow and deliver goof performance on groomers.

    10mm rise on a 200mm length. 

  • 2mm Camber  :

    Easy turn initiation on the slope, added reactivity off piste

  • 5/100mm tail 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.

    5mm rocker rising on 100mm

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

  • Semelle Ptex-4000 bases  :

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

  • Gloss Layer Topsheet
