Product details: Faction Dancer 2 Yth 23/24 Skis Kids
The Faction Dancer 2 Youth Ski is the ideal all-mountain and freeride ski for beginners and young skiers. And it has a great look, just like its big brother, but without the titanal reinforcement.
For the grom who emulates his/her heroes on the Faction pro team, this ski not only looks the look, it offers the sort of high-end performance that will elevate the young skier’s game. Next thing you know: fulfilling those dreams may not be so far-fetched as it seems.
In addition to its top-notch, durable Austrian quality construction, the Faction Dancer 2 Youth Ski stands out for its 100 percent sustainable manufacturing. The skis are made in a factory that runs on 100 percent renewable electricity and is heated with biomass.
The Dancer 2 also features a sustainable wood core that is sourced from Europe and is FSC certified, and it is made from recycled components. Faction sources materials from European companies close to its factories to keep the supply chain short. In addition, Faction donates 1 % of all proceeds from the Agents, La Machine and Dancer series to the non-profit organization 1 % for the planet.

Tail (mm): 270

Flex (1 soft / 10 hard): 6
Poplar is a light-coloured, medium-weight, durable softwood with good flex and pop and excellent vibration dampening. Because only a single wood is used here, the ski jumps, butters and and stomps like a classic park ski. At the same time, it has enough torsional stability for impressive grip on the descents.
XL 2.5 mm edges
0.7 mm may not seem like much, but when it comes to edges, they make all the difference. At 2.5 mm, the already super-durable 1.8mm standard edges are a further 35 % wider. This extra steel gives riders a pair of skis that can withstand higher loads and are more durable.

Recommended mounting points (acc. to manufacturer)
A mounting point further back on the ski promotes stability, float, and carving performance. This is generally preferred by those with a traditional technique, who ski in a forward stance or with lots of pressure on the front of their boots through the whole turn.
The Classic line offers optimal carving ability. Choose this position if you like to heavily pressure the front of your ski boots and ski shovels through your turns. Mounting at the Classic mark will optimize float in deep snow, giving you the most tip length of any of our three recommended positions.
Best for: those skiing with a traditional stance, ex-racers, big-mountain chargers.
PROGRESSIVE (equivalent to mounting point "Allround Standard" when requested in order process)
Progressive is the Faction recommended mount position for the Prodigy, Dancer, La Machine, and Agent lines. Progressive is the most versatile position on the ski, and provides the perfect balance of carving performance and manoeuvrability. This is the position Faction recommend, if you’re unsure where you want to put your bindings, or if you’re simply looking for the most all-around solution.
Best for: all-rounders, those drawing on both freeride and freestyle inspiration in their skiing.
The Newschool position is for those who ski with a playful, freestyle-influenced style, wanting to maximize pivot ability and potential for butters, tricks, and spins. Skiers preferring New School will likely have a more ‘centred’ and neutral stance, with less pressure on the shins through turns. Newschool is the Faction recommended mount point for the Mana series.
Best for: Freestylers, those who ski with a centred stance, those wanting to maximize manoeuvrability.
