Alpine Ski Faction Agent 90

Ski sold without binding.

The Faction Agent 90 has what it takes to make mountain lovers happy. The manufacturer brings back its line of touring skis, reknowned for their lightweight and versatility. The Agent 90 is the perfect definition of this versatility. Featuring a 92mm waist and a small rockered tip, Faction used the latest technologies to make the ski as light as can be. The paulownia woodcore and the carbon reinforcements are two examples of what the brand can do. It keeps the ski ultra light without compromising its stability on hard and crud snow. 

What can the Faction Agent 90 ski do? 

Weighing only 1310g in 179cm, the Agent 90 is an absolute killer when it comes to skinning up the hill. Long tours are much appreciated with such a ski on your feet. Its incredible lightweight makes it discrete and agile, which helps a lot for saving your energy for the downhill run. Kick-turns are easy, the ski doesn’t feel bulky thanks to a moderate waist width and you shouldn’t burn your legs too fast. If climbing with the Agent 90 is fun, skiing downhill is even better. It delivers good performance with a solid stability and precise energy transmissions. The rocker maximises manoeuverability on powder and makes the ski more intuitive. In more technical or difficult conditions, the ski performs well and offers an enjoyable glide. You can also ride on groomers and improve your carving as the ski delivers excellent edge traction and good reactivity. 

Who is the Faction Agent 90 ski designed for? 

It is a good choice if you are a versatile tourer looking for a light pair of quivers. The Agent 90 works great through long tours and more aggressive skiing sessions.

    Sandwich construction

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.

Technology

  • 5/150mm tip rocker  :

    The Rocker, or reverse camber, enhances powder floatation thanks to a bigger surface of contact with the snow. By combining different degrees of rocker with a flat or normal camber, powder performance is improved while piste performance isn't affected.

    5mm rocker rising on 150mm

  • 5mm camber  :

    A 5mm camber provides pop and return for a good boost when exiting the turns.

Rocker type

  • Tip rocker  :

    Skis are more manoeuvrable, contact points on the skis are placed in order to reduce the effective running length, which allows easier pivot and a better float.

Various

  • Ptex-4000 die-cut bases  :

    Very High density base for an excellent glide performance, wax retention, and resistance to abrasion.

  • Gloss Layer Topsheet
