Faction Agent 100 STP Skis 2012

Faction Agent 100 STP Skis 2012: Like to get away from it all? The Faction Agent 100 STP Skis are light weight semi-stiff skis that will allow you to get out into the backcountry and leave you with plenty of energy to ski those big lines. With our proprietary STP technology, the ski is 15% lighter than the old ski, rides softer and with better edge grip. The Agent has earned an Editor’s Choice Award from Backcountry Magazine for 2010, so you know she’s going to be good. For those who prefer their ride on the stiffer side, the Agent 100 PRO is also available.
Shape
All-mountain Twin Rocker: tip & tail rocker and traditional camber on the Prodigy combine to create an off-piste bias ski that floats amazingly yet is still quick edge-to-edge - 5/150mm tip rocker, 5mm camber underfoot, 5/100mm tail rocker.
Construction
Rider-Centric Technology: the dimensions, specs, materials, cores and flexes of all Faction skis are designed around rider specifications, not market segments. This way, the products benefit from the best performance possible with maximum versatility.
The Echo Initiative: the production house, logistics and offices are all assessed for compliance to ISO 14001, and Faction is initiating projects in select resorts to start reclaiming and recycling old skis as part of its environmental policy.
Sandwich construction
P-tex 4000 die-cut bases
ABS tail protector
Anti-chip sidewalls
Full-wrap edges
Flex
Half-Nelson core uses custom-designed laminates to give a combination of strength, dampness at speed. A full length core right to the tip of the ski; the Half-Nelson is still relatively light.
Medium-Stiff flex
In conjunction with NBL Sport, Faction has been researching how to make our skis lighter and easier to ride, without sacrificing edge grip or torsional strength. The Snake Transition Project (S.T.P.) is the fruit of their labor. Up to 30% lighter skis with equivalent or better torsion than a traditionally built ski, resulting in more positive edge grip and easier turn initiation. A wave pressed into the full length of the ski during construction is the secret.
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width that is equal to the ski waist width and at most 15 mm wider.

Specs

  • Terrain: All-Mountain, Alpine Touring
    All-Mountain
    All-mountain skis are designed to handle anything you throw at them including powder, ice, groomers, steeps, heavy snow, and everything in between, but they aren’t necessarily a master of any one terrain. If you’re only going to own one ski to do it all, this is what you want. All-mountain skis generally have what we call mid-fat waists that range from 80-110 mm.
    Alpine Touring
    Also known as backcountry skis, alpine touring (AT) skis are designed for going uphill as well as downhill. These skis are typically light for their width and many feature fittings that accept climbing skins. AT skis vary in width and weight, with the wider heavier versions usually used for winter/deep snow touring and the skinnier, lighter skis usually used for spring/summer/long distance touring.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber
    Rocker/Camber skis pair a traditional cambered profile underfoot with an elongated, early rise tip borrowed from fully rockered skis. This profile places the front contact point further back from the tip, while the rear contact point remains close to the tail. The rockered tip allows for better flotation and less edge catch for increased float in deep snow, while the cambered rear stores and transmits energy similarly to a fully cambered ski.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Partial Twin Tip
    Partial Twin Tip
    Partial twin tip skis have a tail that is turned up, but not as much as the tip. This gives you the ability to ski backwards and back out of tight spaces, but these skis are mainly designed to ski forward.
