Faction Prime Series 2018

Présentation de la gamme Prime 2018

Alpine Ski Faction Prime 1.0

Ski sold without binding.

The Prime 1.0 is continued for 2019 in Faction’s lineup. It replaces the former Agent 90 and becomes the new flagship of the touring series. The ski features a light balsa woodcore and flax fibres as well as new state of the art technologies placing the ski on the very high end. This involves a carbon reinforcement for the energy coupled with a titanal underfoot making the ski stiffer for higher downhill performance without sacrificing uphill comfort. 

What can the Faction Prime 1.0 ski do? 

The 90mm-waisted Prime 1.0 is the narrowest ski in the Prime series which also makes it the most reponsive and nimble one. The ski blends high-end materials and a superb construction to deliver an amazing feel both on descents and ascents. Hard charging skiers may lack of stability when the terrain gets complex as the ski tends to chatter a little. No big deal though, it remains manageable and feels fantastic anywhere. The rockered profile allows for nice lines in the backcountry while the stiff construction delivers solid hold on the hardpack. Combine this with a light and easy to skin construction and you get a ski like there are not many on the market.  

Who is the Faction Prime 1.0 ski designed for? 

It is an exceptional ski ideally suited for intermediate and advanced tourers who want a light and nimble ski for the uphill bits of their tours and a solid and powerful blade for the descents. Make no compromise with the Prime. 

What are the main assets of the Faction Prime 1.0 ski?

Structure - Construction

  • TeXtreme Carbon  :

    Proprietary "spread-tow" weave makes the laminate thinner and stronger than regular carbon. A full layer, strategically laid up gives excellent torsional stability across the ski without compromising weight.

  • Sidewall Construction  :

    The sidewall construction improves the ski's stability and edge holding.

  • Hybrid balsa / flax lightweight core  :

    A lightweight and well-dampened core with a sandwich construction for great edge hold.

  • Carbon reinforcement  :

    A carbon layer makes the core more durable and best suited for a rail use. 

  • Titanal Plates  :

    Titanal plates secure the binding screws. The one-piece design fits most touring bindings with centre screws.

  • Multi-Dimension Sidecut  :

    Shorter radius underfoot with longer radii blended out to the tip and tail of the ski. Charges at high speeds whilst giving responsive, short turns when you need it.

Rocker - Camber

  • 2mm Camber  :

    Easy turn initiation on the slope, added reactivity off piste

Various

  • Medium Flex  :

    The ski flex is carefully chosen after hour-long tests in every possible conditions. Thanks to the program Rider-Centric, the flex used is set according to the sidecut radius and the ski size in order to provide the best possible performance.

  • Extended tip and tail rocker  :

    For excellent float in fresh snow and nimble feel.

  • Die-Cut Ptex 3000
