It can be tough to find a stiff, responsive, powder-oriented twin these days; often times the skis are too soft to really let run. However, the Faction 3.Zero Skis offer the switch skiing, freestyle-oriented shape you know and love, but with a stiff flex and subtle rocker. What does that mean for you? The 3.Zero will arc turns, blast pow, and track at high speeds, without being a slouch in the air. Spin off that cliff, air into the pinch, and come screaming out the other side with a smile on your face.

Freeride Twin Ideal for Freeride, Backcountry Freestyle and Big Mountain riding
Poplar / Ash Core Faction's standard core material. Poplar is a medium-weight, damp, vibration-absorbing softwood. Ash is a heavier hardwood that compliments the Poplar by increasing stiffness, responsiveness and providing a solid base for the binding screws.
Fibreglass Laminates like fibreglass are used to compliment the properties of the core material by increasing torsional strength, edge-grip and rebound.
Gloss Lacquered ICP2112 Topsheet Used on most Faction skis, gloss lacquered ICP2112 topsheets are colourfast and look great. The lacquer is applied to the ski after pressing.
Sandwich Construction Used on most Faction skis. A traditional manufacturing method that provides strength, durability, good grip and edge hold. Rubber is used to dampen vibration and bond the base layers to the core.
Die-Cut Ptex 4000 Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax better than PTEX 2000.
1.8 mm Edges Used on 99% of Faction skis, the 1.8 mm hardened steel edges are strong and dependable.
Digital Printing Used on Faction's core and women's models, digital printing provides greater flexibility for designing complex graphics and requires no setup process, however the colors are not as bright or strong as the silkscreen method.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
