What Faction says about the Mana 2
“The Mana 2 with its versatile 102 mm waist is the sleekest in the family, making it the ideal tool to transition from all-mountain, to backside, to park. This is a high-quality, high-performance craft that effortlessly responds to your movements and your commands. Its lightweight poplar core construction helps the ski to pop off booters, butter over rollers, and whip effortlessly between turns. Yet the Rubber/Carbon stomp pad keeps it strong enough to take hit after hit. Enjoy the finest, most durable Austrian construction, powered 100% by renewable energy.”
Here’s how we’d characterize the flex pattern of the Mana 2:
In Front of Toe Piece: 9-10
Behind the Heel Piece: 10-9
We’ve been skiing the new Faction Mana 2 this spring, and plan to continue skiing it next season. Let us know of any questions you have about this ski and stay tuned for updates.
