Faction is a snowsport brand with a track record of explosive growth of 70%+ and sales in 20 countries and counting. In addition to skis, Faction has had superb reception to its outerwear line for 2013/14.
Faction's mainstays are quality, design and sheer execution. That is why we are likely the fastest-growing ski brand in the business at present.
The market it is addressing is $7B, of which $2.9B is skis and snowboards, and its particular segment, freeskiing, is growing rapidly becoming a major part of a disrupted industry.
Faction leverages important changes in business today - a lean business with world-class designers, delivering cutting-edge product, offering professional channel management with focus on efficiency.
The company closed $5M in financing in two slices in August 2012 and June 2013, bolstered its management team as well as adding a world-class athlete Candide Thovex and is now increasing marketing spend, scope and scale.
