Product Info

Name your line, call in sick on a pow day, and grab the Faction La Machine Mega Skis to snag those tracks first. Freetouring is a real thing these days, never mind the old school Euros who dismiss anyone with a touring binding on a ski wider than 95mm. You know the score, when it's hip deep and falling is not an option, those narrow planks just don't cut it. Get a 109mm waist, some serious rocker, and an ultralight carbon-Paulownia design with the La Machine Mega and leave those dudes floundering.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker-Moderate Camber-RockerTip Rocker: 172 = 400mm, 178 = 410mm, 184 = 420mm | Tail Rocker: 172 = 230mm, 178 = 249mm, 184 = 250mm


Flex Rating6 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

Mustache FlexThis flex works best for most skiers. Enjoy stability in front of and behind the binding area to provide solid edge hold. Then, we transition to smooth, progressive flex in the tips and tails to easily absorb all the different bumps and snow debris on the mountain. This flex allows for an easier turn initiation and finish.


Elliptical SidecutElliptical Sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths, angles and mounting positions.


Tip Height67mm

Tail Height34mm


Lightweight Sustainable Paulownia Wood Core


Full Carbon WeaveBetween 8 and 12 strips of carbon, sandwiching either side of the ski’s woodcore, are laid unidirectionally, providing extra stability to the ski, without adding weight to the build. Each carbon strip is woven into the fiberglass to provide strength and stiffness in the full length of the ski.

Phenol Binding Reinforcement Plate


Microcap Full Strength SidewallMicro-cap construction is a hybrid of a premium, sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile joint that can be prone to chipping.
