Présentation de la gamme Prime 2018

Alpine Ski Faction Prime 3.0

Ski sold without binding.

Released in 2018, the freetouring line of Faction skis named Prime returns unchanged for 2019. The Prime 3.0 comes with a 108mm waist and a balsa and flax fibre core. The whole thing is souped up with carbon and titanal (underfoot) which ensures optimal power and a great time out in the mountain! 

What can the Faction Prime 3.0 ski do? 

In terms of floatability, there isn’t much to say. It is as if the ski was built to float pow. It feels natural and effortless. The wide waist and the tip and tail rockers provide 5-star manoeuverability and pivot on the fluff. Weighing only 1740g each in 182cm, the Prime 3.0 calls for tours in the backcountry. Mount it with touring bindings to make the most from the ski. Despite a wide profile, the ski doesn’t feel bulky and performs well when skinning up. But it’s clearly on descents that the ski excels, it is stable and powerful, ideally suited for ripping the mountain with confidence. 

Who is the Faction Prime 3.0 ski designed for? 

Faction is targetting advanced and expert freeriders who need a strong and beefy ski to assault the steeps on both backside and frontside of the mountain. Its large sidecuts are going to give you a blast.

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 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.

Rocker - Camber

  • 2mm Camber  :

    Easy turn initiation on the slope, added reactivity off piste

Various

  • Medium Stiff 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.
