Product details: Faction La Machine 5 Max 22/23 Skis

Faction La Machine debuted in 2020 as the fattest ski in the Faction line-up.

The original shape is mirrored here in the Faction La Machine Max, and the ski now benefits from eco-conscious tech. This ultra-light, carbon-loaded ski is the backcountry powder-hound's dream. Its progressive and ultra-rockered shape will have you floatin’ like the yacht of your dreams, along the deepest backcountry runs you can search out.

In addition to its top-notch, durable Austrian quality construction, the Faction La Machine 5 Max Ski stands out for its enironmentally friendly characteristics. The La Machine 5 Max features a sustainable wood core that is sourced from Europe and is FSC certified, and it is made from recycled components as well as from bio-based resin. 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.

Carbon Stringer
Between 8 and 12 unidirectional carbon strips enclose both sides of the wood core, giving the ski additional stability without increasing its weight. Each carbon strip is woven into the fibreglass for added stability and stiffness throughout the ski.

Poplar core
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.

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.
