Description courte

The Prime 1.0 from Faction’s 2019 lineup is a light touring ski that appears to be super lively on hard snow and extremely versatile with a rocker-assisted steering on pow.

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.
