With a product portfolio that includes a “Supreme Roller Skate Split Monoboard,” it’s clear that Faction isn’t afraid to challenge the status quo. So, when Faction created a low 90’s underfoot ski with no camber, we couldn’t feign too much surprise. Built to move with the agility of a cat through off-piste terrain, the La Machine Micro is built to be easily handled, allowing itself to effortlessly pivot through areas where maneuverability is essential. While being the harder snow-oriented ski in the La Machine lineup, the Micro, with its deep rocker lines and progressive shape, floats well above other brands' skis in this category, simplifying your decision of which ski to grab in the morning. With the Faction La Machine Micro, it's not the size that matters, but how you use it.

  • Biobased resin helps reduce the environmental impact of the ski.
  • Faction recycles scrap base, sidewall, and top sheet material back into their production line.
  • Made entirely with renewable energy.
  • Austrian construction is durable and made to last.
  • Full Carbon Layers allow Faction to control the flex without adding unnecessary additional weight.

Questions & Reviews

Question from Ben
Very interested in trying these. Its about time somebody made a fully rockered ski with a reasonably light weight (R.I.P. Volkl BMT 94). Will you have these available for demo?
Answer from jbo
Hi Ben, you are mirroring our thoughts. We do have at least one pair scheduled for the demo fleet. Let us know what length you'd be interested in testing and we'll see if we can't make it that one.
Answer from Ben
I normally like skis between 170 and 177 but considering the full rocker shape 177 will probably be the best choice. The 176 BMT 94 was the best touring ski of all time, I sold it while in a weight-weenie phase and I regret that decision every day. I hope to try these and the "Mini," but I'm leaning towards the Micro because I already have full rocker Beast 108s in the quiver and don't need 2 pairs of ~100mm+ skis
