Product Info

A monster of a powder-devourer, the Faction Prime 4.0 Skis will help you tackle any uphill climb while also giving the best ride back down through the steep and deep. Crafted with an extended tip and tail rocker shape, fresh snow is this ski's bread and butter. Incredibly nimble and controllable in any 3D snow, the Prime 4.0 uses TeXtreme carbon woven into the ski for incredible strength and performance without compromising overall weight. A light ski that doesn't ski "light," the 118 mm waist width gives you plenty of float in even the deepest conditions. If you're a powder hound with backcountry leanings, the Prime 4.0 should be a key part of your arsenal.

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.
