Skis Faction Agent 3 2023
About Faction Agent 3 2023 skis
Our excitement regarding this ski cannot be overstated. The Agent 3 truly has it all: a lightweight core, progressive shape, high-tech carbon weave, balanced flex and perfectly engineered rocker. Easy on the uphill, and equally capable in the deepest snow, the day-after-the-storm chop or the springtime corn, this ultra-versatile offering will be hailed as one of the hottest touring skis of the year.
You'll love this ski if:
- You want a wider free-touring ski that is also lightweight
- You think light weight is important, but downhill performance and durability are better
- You like to charge hard in variable snow and float above the powder
- You want a one-ski quiver that is dependable no matter the location, no matter the conditions
As a proud member of 1% for the Planet, we are committed to donating 1% of all sales from the Agent Series to support organizations, individuals and events that are focused on bringing about a positive impact on the environment we love and enjoy.
This flex works best for most skiers. Enjoy stability in front of, and behind the binding area to provide solid edge hold. Then, we transition to smooth, progressive flex in the tips and tails to easily absorb all the different bumps and snow debris the mountain throws at you. This flex allows for an easier turn initiation and finish.
Elliptical Sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths, angles and mounting positions.
Freeride Flat Tail
Traditional flat tail design is built for speed, ultimate edge grip and control throughout charging turns. Brought into the modern day with a slight tail rocker, this shape is easier than ever to slash your turn into a slarve and won’t hook up in fresh conditions.
- Tip Height – 70mm
- Tail Height – 26mm
Lightweight Karuba Core
Karuba is an extremely lightweight woodcore with good strength properties. Despite being little-known, Karuba provides excellent flex and vibration absorption capabilities without adding weight, making it an ideal woodcore for a touring ski that performs just as well on the uphill as on the downhill.
Full Carbon Weave
Between 8 and 12 strips of carbon, sandwiching either side of the ski’s woodcore, are laid unidirectionally, providing extra stability to the ski, without adding weight to the build. Each carbon strip is woven into the fiberglass to provide strength and stiffness in the full length of the ski.
Titanal Binding Plate
Adds pullout strength with minimal weight gain.
Microcap Full Strength Sidewall
Micro-cap construction is a hybrid of a premium, sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile joint that can be prone to chipping.
XL 2.5mm Edges
Fractions of a millimeter might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges stack an extra 25% of height on top of our already super-durable standard 2.0mm edges. This extra steel gives the rider a pair of skis that are going to take more abuse and last longer.
100% Renewable Energy Factory
This ski is produced in a cutting-edge facility that runs on electrical power that is 100% renewable. Additionally, its heating energy comes solely from biomass. The factory no longer uses oil, resulting in annual CO2 emissions reductions of a whopping 10 million kilograms.
Locally Sourced Materials
In an effort to reduce the impact of our supply chain, we strive to source materials from European companies that are based near our factories.
Working with our production partners to eliminate material waste, we now mix base, sidewall and topsheet material scraps back into the raw material used for production, reducing carbon emissions while ensuring the same level of quality & durability. By integrating recycled materials into our ski bases, we reduce the ecological impact of our bases by 75%.
