Agent 4.0 Ski

Faction is known for their playful freestyle skis and their esteemed big-mountain chargers, yet their new touring skis are starting to impress among downhill-oriented backcountry skiers. The Agent series is effectively replacing the popular Prime series, bringing all of the lightweight touring performance that the Prime was known for but improving the ski’s descending capability. New for 2020-2021, the Agent 4.0 is Faction’s widest touring option, with a burly 116mm waist suited for playful surfiness and authoritative charging in soft snow conditions. Unlike the rest of the Agent series, the 4.0 is constructed with a lightweight Paulownia woodcore, which offers additional dampness compared to the Karuba core featured in the rest of the line. The Agent 4.0 is suited for someone looking for a ski that sits in between a dedicated touring ski and a standard alpine ski, with a descending capability that provides uncompromising performance in a sub-2,000g package for endless peak-bagging possibilities.

Faction achieves this versatile ski performance by minimizing weight wherever possible. Paulownia serves as a stable core material that is significantly lighter than more popular materials like poplar or ash. A full carbon weave throughout the length of the ski offers the stiffness of an alpine ski at a fraction of the weight, allowing you to charge steep untouched lines or the occasional crud-crushing resort lap with equal confidence. The freeride flat tail implements added stiffness for a strong finish to the turn, and added support on landing for stomping airs. Generous tip and tail rocker rounds out the package, providing a highly versatile powder ski that's equally comfortable on technical skin tracks and epic powder days.
