Faction Prime Series 2018

Présentation de la gamme Prime 2018

Alpine Ski Faction Prime 2.0

Ski sold without binding.

Faction is introducing a new touring line named the Prime series. It’s not even out yet and we know every single ski is going to sell out. Featuring 4 skis numbered from 1.0 to 4.0, the line incorporates high-end skis made of premium materials like carbon and titanal (underfoot) to offer optimal power and lightweight. The result is stunning. The Prime 2.0 also integrates a balsa woodcore to lightweight at its best.  

What can the Faction Prime 2.0 do? 

Built on a 98mm platform, the Prime 2.0 is by far the most versatile ski in the series and it is a love at first ride. The second it glides on the snow you feel like you have something serious on your feet. Terrains, conditions, nothing matters, the Prime 2.0 blasts through the mountain without asking questions. It is nimble and floaty on pow and it offers a predicatble behaviour. The ski is limitless, litterally. The titanal and carbon keep it responsive on harder snow and offer solid control with a nice edge bite. On ascents, the ski is light and yet feels strong. Whether you’re skinning up a firm face or climbing through the forest, you get the agility needed for reaching the top without wearing yourself out.  

Who is the Faction Prime 2.0 designed for? 

It is a good pick if you want one set-up rather than two backcountry skis, one for pow, one for harsher conditions. The Prime 2.0 is extremely versatile and deals with powder, crud, chopped up snow, groomed snow and even ice with ease. Its light and powerful construction makes it able to climb easily in all conditions. For advanced skiers.

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.

  • 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 Layer  :

    Titanal has the same properties in all directions and excellent dampening properties. Our skis with Titanal have excellent torsional strength and responsiveness.

  • 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.

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.

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.

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.
