Faction Prime Series 2018

Présentation de la gamme Prime 2018

Alpine Ski Faction Prime 4.0

Ski sold without binding.

The Prime 4.0 is the widest ski in the Prime series from Faction. Designed to impress, the ski carries the most advanced techs developped by the brand and boasts a massive 118mm waist. First released last year, the ski returns with the same rockered profile for added powder performance and it has a multiple radius geometry for extra versatility.   

What can the Faction Prime 4.0 ski do? 

If you want to shred the gnar this is the ski you need. The 26m turning radius says a lot about its capabilities. It is a powder monster, a slash machine, it doesn’t float, it flies, it soars over the backcountry with power and style. Just be careful when you get back on groomers. The ski turns wide and if it can be pleasant on deep snow, it’s not quite the same story on the hardpack. You’ll need strong legs to tame the beast and make it do what you want. The titanal reinforcements make it stiff, stable and powerful but hard to bend so make sure you’re ready for it! 

Who is the Faction Prime 4.0 designed for? 

It is a top-end big mountain ski suitable for good (expert) skiers who need a stiff and responsive gun on their feet. The tail is powerful and the ski makes no compromise on varying terrains. You can mount it with AT bindings if you like short tours to reach spots you can’t normally ride.
