The modern Faction touring skis of the Agent series convince with Karuba wood core for responsive and rebounding flex and carbon stringer for more hardness and stability. The Faction Agent 3X has a 106 mm waist and is also particularly light.

These elements combine for a must-have ski that can truly do it all. Forgiving on the uphill and highly adept in all snow conditions, this ski will enhance the way you experience the mountain, day-in and day-out.

In addition to its top-notch, durable Austrian quality construction, the Faction Agent 3x Ski stands out for its 100 percent sustainable manufacturing. The skis are made in a factory that runs on 100 percent renewable electricity and is heated with biomass.

The Agent 3X also features a sustainable wood core that is sourced from Europe and is FSC certified, and it is made from recycled components. Faction sources materials from European companies close to its factories to keep the supply chain short. In addition, Faction donates 1 % of all proceeds from the Agents, La Machine and Dancer series to the non-profit organization 1 % for the planet.

Technology

Carbon Stringer
Between 8 and 12 unidirectional carbon strips enclose both sides of the wood core, giving the ski additional stability without increasing its weight. Each carbon strip is woven into the fibreglass for added stability and stiffness throughout the ski.

Lightweight Karuba core
Karuba is an extremely light wood core with good strength properties. The little known Karuba offers good flex and excellent vibration dampening without adding weight. This makes it a a perfect wood core for a touring ski that delivers full performance both downhill and uphill.

XL 2.5 mm edges
0.7 mm may not seem like much, but when it comes to edges, they make all the difference. At 2.5 mm, our already super-durable 1.8mm standard edges are a further 35 % wider. This extra steel gives riders a pair of skis that can withstand higher loads and are more durable.

Please note: Mounting not compatible with telemark bindings

 

Recommended mounting points (acc. to manufacturer)

A mounting point further back on the ski promotes stability, float, and carving performance. This is generally preferred by those with a traditional technique, who ski in a  forward stance or with lots of pressure on the front of their boots through the whole turn

CLASSIC
The Classic line offers optimal carving ability. Choose this position if you like to heavily pressure the front of your ski boots and ski shovels through your turns. Mounting at the Classic mark will optimize float in deep snow, giving you the most tip length of any of our three recommended positions. 

Best for: those skiing with a traditional stance, ex-racers, big-mountain chargers.

PROGRESSIVE (equivalent to mounting point "Allround Standard" when requested in order process)
Progressive is the Faction  recommended mount position for the Prodigy, Dancer, La Machine, and Agent lines. Progressive is the most versatile position on the ski, and provides the perfect balance of carving performance and manoeuvrability. This is the position Faction recommend, if you’re unsure where you want to put your bindings, or if you’re simply looking for the most all-around solution. 

Best for: all-rounders, those drawing on both freeride and freestyle inspiration in their skiing. 

NEWSCHOOL
The Newschool position is for those who ski with a playful, freestyle-influenced style, wanting to maximize pivot ability and potential for butters, tricks, and spins. Skiers preferring New School will likely have a more ‘centred’ and neutral stance, with less pressure on the shins through turns. Newschool is the Faction recommended mount point for the Mana series.

Best for: Freestylers, those who ski with a centred stance, those wanting to maximize manoeuvrability.
