Function Skis 2017
Do you consider turning nothing more than an annoying (but occasionally necessary) way to slow down? If straight-lining open, steep terrain no matter the conditions sounds like your idea of a good time, the Function’s ridiculously damp, stiff, and stable feel will plaster a perma-grin on your face the first time you ski it. Stiffer than the Mode and with a higher tip rocker, the Function floats like a dream on the waist-deep days, and excels at powering through crust and chop when you’re hunting for leftovers. Camber underfoot, a huge turning radius, and a flat tail shape mean the ride stays predictable at even the most ludicrous speeds, and the Progressive Flex core with vibration-dampening purple heart sidewalls will keep you tracking true in no-fall situations. Topsheet colorways may vary.
- Progressive Flex Core™ 2.0: Immediately recognizable by its stunning purple heart sidewall, the next generation Progressive Flex Core (PFC) is an evolutionary step forward from the original. By utilizing a trio of ash, poplar, and purple heart wood torsional rigidity and sidewall durability have both improved without packing on a single pound. PFC is the secret sauce in most of Deviation's model range. By utilizing a variable width sidewall, meaning a greater portion of the core is composed of purple heart at the tips and tails, the core produces a variable dampening and response that encourages confidence. This unique and balanced flex pattern provides high speed stability and effortless linking of turns.
- Purple Heart: This beautiful wood adorns all of Deviation ski and snowboard sidewalls and is naturally Hydrophobic and weather proof. Purple heart produces an extremely stiff flex pattern that contributes to vibration dampening and absorption.
- Ash: Provides strength underfoot and along the spine of the core. Ash is extremely durable and one of the best materials for screw retention, eliminating the need for an extra binding mat common in other skis.
- Poplar: One of the more commonly used woods in ski and snowboard construction for good reason. This “poppy” wood is light weight, responsive, and has a medium stiff flex.
