Banish the hanger.
When you're dragging your duffel through the airport en route to yet another faraway locale, make sure you're towing the Faction Eleven5 ski behind you in your ski bag. Fat and capable, this well-fed set of planks remains permanently hungry for Hokkaido pillows, bottomless BC pow, and seriously big Alaskan lines, so don't deny it what it's craving. Quit your job, bail on commitments, and do whatever you have to do to get to the snow on the Eleven5 before someone else does.
Whether you encounter moisture-laden or weightless pow when you step off the plane, the Eleven5's stable 115mm waist and rockered tips and tails will slash and surf it's way through with ease. Camber underfoot backs you up when you want to rail wide, fast turns on harder snow, and a stable, powerful sandwich construction with a dual-radius sidecut prevents this floaty ski from turning skittish in less-than-ideal conditions, keeping turn initiation snappy and quick. Faction lays on a dampening Tech Titanal laminate to reduce chatter for a smoother ride at high speeds and wraps a micro-cap topsheet over the top of the ski in case of accidental rock bashing. Responsible for its playful nature, the ski's poplar/ash core brings energy and pop, encouraging you to huck cliffs and cornices without overthinking.
