If you prefer an exclusive all-white pair (to facilitate locating them on powder days) these are a steal at around $17,000 (including the price of the required IWC Schaffhausen Lake Tahoe Top Gun watch). Only 55 pairs are available so don't procrastinate people. The upscale male and female skiers in the photos don't look like they'd spend much time in the park so it's a curious brand tie-in for this model, which is being marketed elsewhere on the site as a dedicated park ski. Maybe they will be on closeout at Sierra.com in the spring.Faction releasing some full camber, symmetrical dedicated pipe(83mm) and park(90mm) models. Wonder if all the athletes will be moving to these from the Prodigy line for competitions.
No interest in these myself but good to see them making symmetrical skis again like the pre 21 CT 1.0 and 2.0.
The brand-new Studio series is all about park & pipe performance. With a sustainably sourced wood core and carbon running through the ski, the Studio skis are designed for the most demanding freestyle skiers.ca.factionskis.com
Limited to 55 pairs and designed in collaboration with IWC, the Faction Studio 1 IWC Collab Ski is a premium half pipe twin-tip ski created to withstand the G forces of the world’s best freeskiers.
