Faction is bringing back the Chapter name to their lineup for 19/20, but these new Chapter skis are nothing like the previous skis that shared their name. Check out our measured specs, rocker pics, and initial impressions of the Chapter 1.0.
Travis Ganong might be the most well-rounded skier in the world (just listen to this conversation), and he is certainly one of the most passionate. He’s a Team U.S.A. downhiller and Super G racer, and he is also obsessed with backcountry touring and big-mtn skiing. So we talk about all of it: racing & training; catching the attention of Shane McConkey as a kid; backcountry skiing; and more.
Dalbello is introducing a brand-new boot to their touring-friendly Lupo line next year. The new Lupo Pro HD packs uphill-oriented features into a burly package, and you can check out our measured specs, fit notes, and initial impressions.
