Manufacturers description
We went deep, very literally, with this project. We interviewed the foremost experts on powder skiing; we filmed athletes ripping the dreamiest snow; we skied lots and lots of the fluffy white stuff ourselves; we analyzed, toiled and tinkered; and after lots of heavy breathing, La Machine was born. Faction Skis 2021 La Machine is made to ski the deepest powder, whether it be in the breathtaking Japanese valleys or the remote mountains of western Canada. Perfectly suited to intermediate and advanced skiers, this deep powder freeride ski allows for effortless flotation and intuitive handling, allowing you to go up for another run even when your legs are screaming mercy.

Strenghts:
Easy riding, Light, Good flow, Full Rocker profile, speed stable, etc.

Weaknesses:
A little carbon feeling sometimes…

Summary:
These are a pair of really good skis that most people have probably not discovered and may also be intimidated by the 126mm wide waist. But these skis are extremely easy to ride thanks to the full rocker profile. Have these fitted with ATK Freerider 14, which makes it a super light powder ski! Of course, there are no skis that you burn piste with (even if they are easy to ride and work with) but these skis are in my opinion best done as Powderturskida or Japan / Canada skis.
The skis are quite stiff but I like it as the full rocker profile still makes them so easy to handle
1895gram!… In Blister test and 1910g on my scale in 186 length… it is very light ..
So throw on a trip binding and you have an absolutely fantastic powder trip ski! ..
