The Curated Take
The Faction Prodigy 2X is a fantastic all-mountain freeride ski for advanced to expert skiers! When most people think of Faction, they immediately think of park skis. However, while the Prodigy 2X absolutely shines in the park, it’s actually an all-mountain freestyle-oriented ski. Don’t pigeonhole yourself in the park with this one. Take it anywhere you want! From the back bowls to the trees, to even just ripping groomers and jibbing off those side hits-- it’s guaranteed to have a smile on your face all day! Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s the Prodigy 2X! This ski wants to be in the air, especially with its low swing weight at the tips. Don’t be afraid to go for those bigger jumps; you’ll have stable landing gear when you return to snow. The Prodigy 2X is 98mm underfoot, making it a perfect one ski quiver for your all-mountain ski. The twin tips give it really nice floatation for its width. While the Prodigy 2X is a twin tip, it’s important to note that it is not a true twin tip. If you already have switch riding under your belt, then you will love these for switch. If you're still learning, there are better skis out there for you to learn on.
- All-Mountain Freeride
- A little unstable in uneven terrain
The Prodigy 2X is the ultimate all-mountain shred-tool. Packing all the right ingredients to help you pop, stomp and surf all over the mountain, the Poplar Core is soft and poppy enough to butter those slushy rollers while maintaining stiffness underfoot, meaning the only way to beat your last run, is to go back up for another one.
