The Swiss engineered and Austrian built Faction Agent 3.0 alpine touring ski is a backcountry weapon worthy of any “Agent” in the field. With an ideally versatile 106cm waist, this ski is loaded with ammunition to make it perform well in multitudes of conditions.
This Agent is overbuilt 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 this all off with full Titanal binding plates for added strength and security.
The Agent 3.0 is fun to “chute” with surf zones that unite the skis rocker with its tip and tail taper. The rocker provides ample float in deep snow 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 covert operator has an Elliptical Radius Sidecut made with a longer radius underfoot for fast pivots to dump speed quickly and shorter in the tip and tail for effortless edge to edge turning.
Depending on the size of the ski, between 8 and 12 carbon strips 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 180cm at an easy to aim 1720 grams.
When backcountry conditions escalate from ideal blower powder to rock hard committing technical lines we want the fully loaded Agent 3.0 strapped to our feet!
