Product Info

Prime numbers, primal instincts, the Faction Prime 2.0 Skis are all about individual feelings and things that come first. If you're feeling like you're at the top of your game and completely capable of ascending a 1,500 m peak, but also looking to rip the descent like a boss, these are the skis for you. Incredibly lightweight, making your ascent as easy as possible, and built with TeXtreme Carbon weave laminates to provide stability and precision for your way down. The Faction Prime 2.0 Skis are not for the faint of heart, but are for those looking for a true all-mountain tool.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker410mm rocker at the tip, 2mm camber underfoot, and 420mm rocker in the tail.

Flex

Stiff Flex7/10 - 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 CoreA lightweight and well-dampened core with a sidewall construction for great 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.
