Introducing Faction’s 116cm waisted backcountry alpine touring floater, the Agent 4.0. This ski was built to do two things, ski deep powder effortlessly and do it for many years. The Swiss engineers at Faction wanted to do things differently, meaning make skis that are sustainably sourced and purpose built to last longer than the many big box ski manufacturers out there. It's fitting that a faction is defined as a minority group working within and in opposition to the majority group.  

This 116 waisted agent of change has a flatter profile, bigger scoop and a waist that yearns for the deep end.  Made with 12 carbon strips that are woven directly into the fiberglass, sandwiching the lightweight Karuba wood core. This provides great strength, stiffness and stability without adding needless weight, keeping the 185cm at an easy to get to the top of the big peak 1800 grams.

Fun to ski but built to last with extra large metal edges for increased durability and greater edging power, the 4.0 has reinforced full sidewalls topped with a micro-cap for greater torsional rigidity and protection from dreaded delaming and chipping of the top sheet/sidewall interface. This is topped off with full Titanal binding plates for added strength and security. 

The Agent 4.0 slashes powder with surf zones that unite the skis rocker with its tip and tail taper. The rocker provides ample float in the deepest snows and facilitates pivoting in tight couloirs, while the tapered widest part of the tip and tail is moved more toward the center, eliminating unwanted hooking. This big boy ski has an Elliptical Radius Sidecut made with a longer radius underfoot for fast pivots to dump speed quickly in tight spaces and shorter in the tip and tail for effortless edge to edge turning.

If you like to ski in the deep end and want to do it year after year on one ski, grab the  Agent 4.0 and let it do its thing!
