Here’s one clue that Faction wasn’t messing around when it made the Supertonic. It comes in lengths ranging from 158 to 182, proving that on the longer end, it’s intended for female skiers who truly charge. Our testers loved everything about this ski, from its fairly radical tip and tail rocker, which gives it a “playful vibe,” to its “predictable obedience,” resulting from its wide underfoot platform (107mm at the waist), and light but damp balsa and flax core.
Swami gripe: One tester thought they felt a bit flat.
Swami like: They grip and rip on command, but also play nice when you lay off the gas.
