Product Info

Ideal for spring touring and hut-based traverse skiing, the Faction Agent 1.0X Skis are built around a lightweight Karuba wood core and feature a full carbon weave laminate for responsive performance. With Faction, even their lightest offerings are built to last, and the Agent 1.0X is up to the task with XL 2.5mm edges, sidewall construction, and anti-chip cap tip and tail profile.

Product Details

Rocker Type

280mm Tip Rocker / 4mm Camber / 170mm Flat Tail Rocker

Flex

Flex Rating7 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Sidecut

Elliptical SidecutMade up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail results in seamless turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths and angles.

Core

Lightweight Karuba CoreKaruba is an extremely lightweight wood core with good strength properties. Despite being little known, Karuba provides excellent flex and vibration absorption capabilities without adding weight, making it an ideal wood core for a touring ski that performs just as well on the uphill as on the downhill.

Laminates

Full Carbon WeaveBetween 8 and 12 strips of Carbon, sandwiching either side of the ski’s woodcore, are laid unidirectionally, providing extra stability to the ski, without adding weight to the build. Each carbon strip is woven into the fibre glass to provide strength and stiffness in the full length of the ski.

Titanal Binding PlateWhen you're on a day-long touring trip in the backcountry, you need to rely on your gear. Titanal reinforcement plates are laid up on top of the lightweight cores ensuring that your binding screws hold. This one-piece design fits alpine and touring bindings, adding trustworthy durability to these lightweight cores.

Sidewalls

Full Strength SidewallThis construction places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the wood core, edges and topsheet from impacts and outside damage.

Anti-Chip Tip & Tail CapFull strength sidewall underfoot, with the topsheet wrapping around the ski so that it meets the edge in the tip and tail. This provides strong protection from impact, boosting the ski's durability, as well as reducing the overall weight of the ski for freestyle or touring needs.

Edges

XL 2.5mm EdgesExtra edge thickness gives the skier a pair of skis that absorb shock and impact much better than skis with standard edges. The result is a ski with a much higher life expectancy.

Additional Features

Scratch Resistant Topsheet
