Faction Prime 1.0 Skis
The Faction Prime 1.0 are no-nonsense skis, designed with the first ascent in mind. Made with a Swiss-developed hybrid balsa flax core, layers of TeXtreme carbon, the Prime 1.0 makes quick work of the ascent, and keeps it solid on the way down.
The proprietary weave of TeXtreme creates well-dampened and torsionally stiff skis that love to lay over on edge at high speeds. A moderate waist width is perfect for arcing turns, while generous tip and tail rocker keep it as nimble in tight spots.
Notched tails are ideal for attaching climbs skins.
Backed by Faction's 2 year warranty.

HYBRID BALSA/FLAX CORE
Reinforce the lightweight, super strong Balsa with layers of robust flax fibres and you are left with a durable wood core that holds an edge like other skis twice its weight.
Deployed as a layer of laminate in our skis, a spread-tow structure weaves at varying angles and axis, spreading stability and stiffness across the whole width and length of the ski.
Sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, adding durability to the fragile join that can be prone to chipping.
A shorter radius underfoot keeps the ski nimble on the steep and narrow, and a longer radii blended to the tips and tails ensure a stable and feel when you’re flying out the bottom.
Titanal reinforcement plates laid up on top of our hybrid balsa/flax cores ensure binding screws hold like nothing else and add durability to these super lightweight cores.
