Park & pipe prowess

The brand-new Studio Series is 100% dedicated to park & pipe. Most park skis today are designed to jump and jib and to "work great outside the park, too." The upside of this is versatility. The downside is a sacrifice in pure park performance. The Studio Series is engineered exclusively for park & pipe riding — it is a celebration of these core elements of the freeskiing experience.

The Studio Series is a limited-run early release, available now at select Faction retailers and factionskis.com.

about the series

Created in collaboration with your favorite Faction riders, the Studio Series delivers precision performance complemented by effortless, oozing style. Skiers of your caliber require precision, because nailing the perfect trick is often a game of inches. The Studio’s symmetrical shape and full camber allow you to maneuver with absolute ease. And because you never quit, you need a tool that won’t quit either; the skis are built strong with reinforced wood cores, “stomp pads” for heavy landings; carbon for lightweight rigidity; and 7mm XL sidewalls.

The story behind the artwork

The Studio Series was born to meet the demanding yet creative and expressive needs of dedicated freestyle skiers. The exploding atoms on the skis are a representation of energy in its purest form. We know very well what it’s like to hit a kicker at mach speed and launch into the air — this moment is ignition. Atoms exploding. Wild energy harnessed and shaped into stunts and style. The artwork on the skis was brought to life by Paris-based Parade Studio.

Carbon and Rubber Stomp Pad

A 600mm-long, 15mm-wide carbon/rubber reinforcement underfoot, above the edge, adds strength where it matters most to a these playful all-mountain skis. In addition to protecting the wood core from heavy-duty impact on rails, the carbon and rubber inlay adds stability and vibration absorption under your boots, so that stomped landings feel better, both for you and your skis.

Full strength sidewall

A construction that places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Our XL 7mm sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the wood core, edges and topsheet from impact and outside damage.

CARBON WEAVE

A carbon weave sandwiches the ski’s wood core, providing extra stability and torsional rigidity without adding bulk to the build. Feel confident when you're about to pop to the Moon.

XL 2.5MM EDGES

7 fractions of a millimetre might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges stack an extra 35% of height on top of our already super-durable standard 1.8mm edges. This extra steel gives the rider a pair of skis that are going to take more abuse and last longer.

BOAT FLEX

Heavy rocker is best complemented by solid, stiffer tips and tails, to help settle the skis and power through variable snow. Additionally, the stiff tips absorb more vibration when skiers touch down after going airborne. Just add a touch more flex underfoot and it allows the skis to load up and POP on request.

ELLIPTICAL SIDECUT

Elliptical Sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turns lengths, angles and mounting positions. See here.

ANTI CHIP MICRO CAP

Micro-cap construction is a hybrid of a premium, sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile join that can be prone to chipping.
