The Curated Take

By the Expert Community

The Faction Mana 3X is an Intermediate to Expert ski that wants to conquer the whole mountain. This is a lightweight, freeride ski that, with 112mm underfoot, floats effortlessly. This ski should be taken into the bumps, bowls, trees, and JaPOW! You’ll find it pivots quickly and easily in the trees and can even get up on edge on the groomers despite the waist width. The Mana 3X is fully rockered, and while there isn’t a ton of camber underfoot, it’s definitely noticeable. The only terrain I wouldn’t take this ski into is the park to hit rails. If you want to hit big air jumps in the park or side hits all over the mountain, then this is the ski to really make the whole mountain your playground.

My favorite day on these skis was in March of 2023 at Snowbird in Utah. It had absolutely dumped the night before, and we found untouched powder along Cirque Traverse in Middle Cirque. I think I skied the best run of my entire life, and the Mana 3Xs kept me floating on top of the powder the whole way down. My smile was plastered to my face the rest of the day just thinking of that run.

The Faction Mana 3X Skis for women in the year 2023 are the perfect choice for those who want a playful and surfy ride around the hill.

The generous rocker and hint of camber make these skis nimble and catch-free, while still providing excellent edge hold and stability at high speeds. Made with the finest Austrian construction techniques, these skis are powered by renewable energy.

Sarah was fantastic!
5 /5
The board I wanted wasn’t available so Sarah quickly put together a list of boards that were similar to the one I wanted. She gave me the best recommendations to ride that hard pack on the East Coast. She was very helpful in the whole cancellation process and made the experience better! Definitely recommend her to anyone looking for some new gear!

Before this, I had never purchased skis in my life and felt overwhelmed when I first looked into buying a pair. Riley gave amazing recommendations based on what I was looking for and found the best options and deals. He was easy to talk to and made finding my first pair of skis much easier. Thank you!

Setting Leo apart was his diligence in learning exactly what product was best for ME. Not the best selling, not the best price, but the best FIT and long term value. He did a lot of work and research, asked the right questions, and walked me through the entire process over several days. Top notch expertise service!

As a first timer trying to figure out my new snowboarding fit and gear, I was lost and didn’t have the time or heart to figure it out. Here comes Bobby, he walked me through the whole process down to tech specs, best fit for purpose and skill level, and most importantly the sickest look I could’ve ever put together. Very grateful for the experience and hats off to Bobby 🤙🏾

Elizabeth made life so much easier!
5 /5
I was hesitant to use this website and service thinking it was going to be more of a sales pitch platform but boy was I wrong! Not having a clue on what to purchase for my two kids and for myself, Elizabeth made a stressful, overwhelming experience EASY. I answered basic questions, gave her my budget and she recommended 1-3 options for me to choose from! Ordering three sets of skis, boots and poles would have taken me months to determine “the right ones” but with Elizabeth I ordered all three packages in one evening, at great discount prices and will be here in time for Christmas to put huge smiles on my children’s faces. I highly recommend this service, more companies should do what Curated does! Thanks again Elizabeth 🖤

Matthew was super helpful. He asked a lot of questions and provided incredibly valuable insight. He made the entire process stress-free. Without his help it would have taken hours of research to figure out which skis to buy for my son. This was a great experience. Matthew went above and beyond to help me find the perfect skis.
