Our award-winning skis for 23|24

    We've got medals to back it up.

    Yet another successful year for our skis

    It is one of our most decorated collections. Our skis raked in 25 awards from publications that demand the highest respect in the game. Skis from across all our categories drew acclaim. Whatever your mode of freeskiing, we have an award-winning ski to match.

    Competition is stiffer than ever, with the bar climbing higher each year - our product succeeds under even more scrutiny and thorough testing than ever before. Each of these awards represents many hours of work by expert testers, and we're grateful for the time, dedication and attention-to-detail that is put in by every person involved.

    Tap on any of the series tabs below to explore the awards.

    Dancer Series

    Our all-mountain freeski flat-tail with dual metal. Built for speed, ultimate edge grip and control throughout charging turns. Brought into the modern day with a slight tail rocker, this shape is easier than ever to slash your turn into a slarve and won’t hook up in fresh conditions.

    Faction has always delivered in spades with its twin tips, but the infusion of freeski DNA into the flat tails is delivering a winning cocktail.
