The 96cm waisted Agent 2.0 alpine touring ski is the workhorse of the Faction Agent backcountry line. Swiss designed and tested on the steeps of Verbier, the Agent 2.0 is light enough for the uphill but built with a focus on downhill performance and durability. Faction’s motto is “quality is sustainability”, and they put their money where their mouth is with sustainably sourced built-to-last skis. In today’s throw away culture it is refreshing to see skis that are intently engineered to last multiple 100+ day seasons.  

The Agent series incorporates the same profiles as Faction’s renowned Dictator line but loses the metal top sheet and swaps Poplar for a lighter weight Karuba wood core that provides great flex and vibration absorption capabilities. Depending on the size of the ski, between 8 and 12 carbon strips are woven into fiberglass sandwiching the Karuba core. This provides great strength, stiffness and stability without adding needless weight, keeping the 179cm weighing in at a svelte 1590 grams.  

But as we mentioned these well built alpine touring skis are engineered to rip the downhill with fun promoting “surf zones” that unite the skis rocker with its tip and tail taper. The rocker provides ample float and facilitates pivoting, while the tapered widest part of the tip and tail is moved more toward the center, eliminating unwanted hooking.  The Elliptical Radius Sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot for fast pivots in tight spaces and shorter in the tip and tail for effortless edge to edge turning. 

Fun to ski and built to last with extra large metal edges for increased durability and greater edging power. This is coupled with 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. Top it off with full Titanal binding plates for added strength and security. 

The Swiss Faction Agent 2.0 is a playful, well built versatile workhorse that will help you achieve your “100 day pin” year after year after year!
