Faction Ambit Women's Skis

Faction Product code: N/A

Ask Faction and they’ll tell you the Ambit is a women’s freestyle ski, which to be fair it is, but as far as we’re concerned it’s also a great option as your first set of ski. The feature of a good beginner ski is flex and that’s something most park skis have in excess. The rocker in the nose and tail not only reduces the chance of catching your edges but also helps with butters and presses, while camber underfoot provides great edge hold and stability through the turn. Because the Ambit is bang on mid-flex it’s the perfect balance of response and forgiveness meaning it goes exactly where you want it to but will soak up a heavy landing or sloppy mistake. This makes is awesome for improving on as well as a great all round freestyle ski for more advanced skiers.

The Uni-body capped construction utilises a full wood core over which the topsheet is folded, completely covering the sidewall of the ski. This helps to reduce the overall weight and cuts down on the amount of material used in production.

The core is comprised of Poplar, a mid-weight, shock absorbing softwood and beech, a heavier hardwood which compliments the Poplar by increasing power and response.

Complimented with a rubber dampening layer which is used to bond the base to the core while simultaneously working to absorb any vibration.

The printed base utilises sintered 4000 P-Tex, a highly porous material with high top speed and great durability.

What we say: “The Ambit is a fantastic choice as your first pair of skis or if you’re trying to go easy on your bank balance. Accessible and functional it’ll compliment your skill level from the earliest days to the late stages of intermediate.”
