Faction Prodigy 4.0

D: 136-112-128mm
L: 175cm, 181cm, 186cm, 193cm
R: 24m @ 186cm

The Prodigy 4.0 was built to be playful when jibbing, yet solid when charging lines and stomping huge airs. Poplar/ash core body guarded by two full layers of eco-friendly flax fibers keep the ski strong, but responsive in the air and on the snow. 112mm waist, progressive directional twin tip shape, surf zone technology, and generous rocker provide float and a surfy feel in the pow.

D: 128-104-120mm
L: 170cm, 177cm, 183cm, 190cm
R: 22m @ 183cm

Inspired by the Prodigy 4.0, this ski shares the same shape, Poplar/ash core and flax fibre layers as its big brother. It grips when carving up corduroy or slush and has the right mix of pop and dampness to boost that backcountry kicker and charge down the tracked-out landing. Whether you’re gapping safety barriers, bouncing down pillow lines or wheeling rollers, this ski can do it all.
