Get the goods! The Faction Collective’s “hot products” for Winter 15/16
The Faction Collective are a close-knit bunch. Started in Verbier (check our 10 week ski instructor training course) we’ve seen them grow from start-up to serious player! Candide, Simon d’Artois, Adam Delorme … their athletes trust in Faction gear, so should you. Here’s The Faction Collective’s “hot products” for Winter 15/16 …
We are The Faction Collective
Adam Delorme going ‘enorm over the rainbow rail
Since the beginning we’ve been driven by a desire to create better products, spurred on by a love of exploration, adventure and discovery.

Made with a 20,000mm/20,000br fabric, this outerwear is really waterproof and breathable, and lightly insulated too.
This makes it really versatile and ideal for keeping trainees warm on long days and whilst standing still during demonstrations, and for keeping them dry during intense ski-training sessions!
For both the men’s and women’s, the fit and colour ways are street-influenced, so as well as being technical, they look great.
Award-winning skis season after season, we should be hurting from high-fives… but we get back to the drawing boards – and mountains – to design the next breakthrough.
Our team of ski designers push their limits every season.
They have no choice.
You don’t keep a skier like Candide Thovex happy with average.

But the beauty of Faction is that an ‘average’ skier can rip these skis as well … because we know what it’s like to be starting out.
So if you’re looking to be the next heir to the freestyle throne or just enjoy being out in the mountains, our focus on design ensures you have the skis to relish each day.
For trainees who will be on the slopes all season!
The Candide 2.0 is the perfect all-mountain ski for more advanced, aggressive skiers.
The Chapter 106 is also excellent for a one ski quiver.
With its 5-point side cut shape, the Chapter 106 turns really easily making it a good, accessible ski.
Standard Nine is good for all techniques, which is perfect for BASI training.
Great for demonstrating on piste as its forgiving and adaptable, and versatile enough to take you on moguls, ice or off-piste too.
The Heroine is really manoeuvrable and great for all over the mountain.
When it’s on edge, it feels like a race ski but it’s still really playful and fun like an all-mountain ski.
Here’s how to find all the goods above in a store near you.
We love hearing what our riders – that’s you! – think of our gear so be sure to leave a comment.
Have an awesome winter!
