Product Info

Though there are several reasons to wake up early in order to be one of the first riders on the mountain, the Faction Prime 3.0 Skis will soon be the most compelling of those reasons. Perfected for powder performance, these skis are both burly and durable, yet still light enough to tour a few thousand feet of vertical for some untouched glory. With a 108 mm waist, the Prime 3.0's manage deep snow without fuss while also managing groomers and hardpack with grip and power. TeXtreme carbon laminates and a BComp balsa / flax core are the secrets to building a ski this powerful without adding too much additional weight. The Faction Prime 3.0 Skis are the prime example of how a ski can motivate its owner to seek pow as early and as often as possible.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker430mm rocker in the tip, 2mm camber underfoot, and 450mm in the tail.

Flex

Stiff Flex8/10 - Designed to provide bite and stability in steep terrain and variable snow.

Sidecut

Multi-Dimension SidecutShorter radius underfoot with longer radii blended out to the tip and tail of the ski. Charges at high speeds whilst giving responsive, short turns when you need it.

Shape

Extended Tip and Tail RockerFor excellent float in fresh snow and a nimble feel.

Core

Hybrid Balsa/Flax Lightweight CoreA lightweight and well dampened core with a sandwich construction for edge hold.

Laminates

TeXtreme CarbonProprietary 'spread-tow' weave makes the laminate thinner and stronger than regular carbon. A full layer, strategically laid up gives excellent torsional stability across the ski without compromising weight.

Titanal Reinforcement UnderfootTitanal plates secure the binding screws. The one peice design fits most touring bindings with center screws.

Sidewalls

Sandwich ConstructionUsed on most of Faction's 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.

Base

Die-Cut PTEX 3000 BaseUsed on most Faction Skis. Sintered PTEX 3000 base material is more porous and holds wax well.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
