Glide past the chairlifts and earn your turns on the Faction Agent 100. This backcountry specialist features an ultralight paulownia core, is reinforced by carbon, and sports a smooth die-cut P-TEX 4000 base, so you can turn down the leg burn on the way up and have the energy to get barreled on the way down. And when you decide to take your girl out for her first couple of days of lift-access skiing, you won't feel like your sliding around on a pair of wet noodles; heck, you might even be able to enjoy a turn or two on hardpack.
Rocker / Camber 5mm of rocker over a 150 mm length in the tip with 5 mm of camber for a bit of float, easy turn initiation and a springy, energized skiing experience.
Flex Rating: 4.5 (1 Soft - 6 Stiff) All-mountain versatility that won't feel overwhelming in difficult situations.
Medium Turning Radius Allows for a reliable turning experience without unwanted tracking or hooking.
Paulownia Core Paulownia is a very light hardwood that is stable and easy to machine. Cores made with this material are lighter than Balsa/Flax cores, but are more expensive and require a lamination layer such as carbon fiber to improve responsiveness.
STP Technology STP Technology is a patent-pending process used to press a small wave into the length of the ski. This creates a "pre-stressed" core with increased torsional strength, letting Faction use less wood to create lighter, more forgiving skis with above-average edge-grip.
Triaxial Fibreglass Fibreglass is used in two different formats to aid the compressional strength of the core and ensure long-lasting pop.
Bi-Axial Carbon Fiber Carbon fiber is used on Faction's lightweight Escape series skis to reinforce the core and increase edge-hold, responsiveness, and rebound.
Phenol Binding Plates Phenol is a hard plastic material that secures the binding screws. The one-piece design fits most touring bindings with center screws.
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 Used on most Faction skis. Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax better than PTEX 2000.
1.8 mm Edges Used on 99% of Faction's skis, the 1.8 mm hardened steel edges are strong and dependable.
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
