The Faction Mana replaces the well-known Candide series ski for 2023.
The Mana 2 is the sleekest in the lineup with its versatile 102mm waist width making it the most ideal tool to transition from all-mountain, backside, to park without missing a beat.
The lightweight poplar core construction helps the ski pop off jumps and whip effortlessly between turns. The rubber and carbon stomp pad in the construction of the edges and binding area keeps it strong enough to take hit after hit. This ski is also nice and stiff, so you won't experience chatter at high speeds.
You'll love this ski if:
- You like to hit every feature that you can find (the mountain is your playground)
- You like to carve tighter style turns
- You want to be able to ski or land switch
- You prefer a stiffer tip and tail for stability at speed, with flex underfoot to pop
- Advanced-expert skiers
- Lightness: 7/10
- Flex: 7/10
- Float: 8/10
- Edge Hold: 8/10

Disclaimer of Warranties:
For previously owned and used skis and bindings:
- Equipment is sold “as is”
- The buyer assumes all risk as to the quality and performance of the equipment
Special Safety Notice for Bindings: We urge you to take your boots and bindings to a shop certified by the bindings manufacturer to have a function check. The majority of shops will charge for this service. Even though we may, by request, check to see if a binding should fit your boot sole length, such an adjustment and fit check does not verify that the bindings will release properly with your boot. Only a certified shop can do this, with the user's boots present.
Skiing is dangerous. Ski at your own risk.
