The 2021 Faction Prodigy 2.0 X skis have been updated for this season with a new shape, now 2mm wider underfoot at 98mm these skis super stable all mountain freestyle shred tools! The design behind these is all about playfulness, fun, and inbound versatility. The waist width which is great for riders looking to take their freestyle between the park, pistes, variables, and streets. This is a great resort ski for those that want to ride a variety of conditions. The X branded models are built to celebrate and inspire women. The Prodigy X range is ridden by Olympic and X-Games champions Kelly Sildaru, Sarah Hoefflin and Mathilde Gremaud.
The Prodigy 2.0 X is less park focused than the 1.0 model, as such it can handle higher speeds and more snow types than its smaller brother. Riders looking for an accessible yet strong ski for all mountain performance will fin nothing lacking in the Prodigy 2.0 X.
These skis draw their strength from 3 key areas. The first of these being the poplar wood core, this full wood core gives a flex that is both playful but firm enough to give edge hold during powerful turns. Secondly, a full sidewall construction moves energy from the skier to the snow and makes for more accurate and precise turns. Finally, the profile creates a ride which is full of energy underfoot with the added benefit of the easy maneuverability from the early rise tips and tails.
The use of rocker in the tips and tails also adds to the fun factor and the versatility of these skis. Rocker allows the tip to flow over cut up and soft snow.
We would recommend this model for intermediate through to advanced riders looking for a versatile freestyle ski that can handle a variety of resort conditions and range of inbound terrain.
