Prodigy 1 mirrors the shape of the best-selling Prodigy 2, including our award-winning Elliptical Sidecut design and a Full Strength Sidewall for top-notch edge hold. It’s designed to withstand heavy hits in the park: the poplar core is bolstered by the inclusion of burly ash wood; Anti-Chip Micro-Cap construction protects against dings; and the XL 2.5mm Edges are ~20% thicker than industry average.

Jake Renner tested this product
The 2024 Faction Prodigy 1.0 was super fun in the park, on groomers and hard packed snow, even got a chance to test it out in the powder - not quite for the powder since its 88mm underfoot. Holds its edge well on packed snow and carving groomers, if you're looking to get into freestyle, this is your all-mountain twin... Read more
Ideal for
  • Directional Twin tip design allows for ease of spinning and skiing switch
  • Camber underfoot and a relatively firm flex rating provides a solid blend of playfulness and pop
  • Prodigy 1 holds up well at higher speeds and holds its edge with authority when carving
Not ideal for
  • Too narrow for skiing powder or getting into fresh snow, I sank in more than 6" of fresh snow
  • Edging in nose and tail is not fully wrapped, edging may come out of sidewall after heavy use
  • Do not use in backcountry, more of a downhill focus around freestyle skiing

Great recommendations, super fast response
5 /5
I casually inquired about skis with Nate after getting tired of my rentals. Within 10 minutes, he had found me a pair with bindings that would beat the cost of renting in less than 2 years. Nate had all the answers to my questions about "Why this ski and not that ski?" and made me feel super confident in my purchase.

Matthew had helped me made this purchase very easy. He's so knowledgeable and listens to what you need. I was pushing back-and-forth and buying my first gear to snowboard, but then Matthew has always been an expert paired to me and he never stopped replying. Been in contact with him for a few months and today. I finally committed on buying my first gear. Been reaching out with Matthew. Maybe this is my fourth time and he always reply nicely And made me feel comfortable whenever I ask questions truly and highly recommended. If you need an expert to help you buy your snowboard gears.

I've been wanting to buy ski gear for a while now, but honestly didn't have the time or mental capacity to do all the research it takes to really know what gear to buy. My upcoming move to Colorado really made get serious about buying. It was extra convenient that Sara lives in Colorado and is familiar with the conditions I'll be skiing in and what gear will be best. She listened to the questions and concerns I had about gear and measurements and made me feel confident in my purchase! Thanks a ton!

Soren provided excellent recommendations tailored to my needs and my budget, I can not recommend him highly enough. Knowledgeable, friendly, professional, no upselling/pressure tactics. Soren is a great choice for both beginner and expert skiers looking for the right equipment.
