The Faction Prime 3.0 skis are built with a lightweight Swiss-developed balsa flax hybrid core and full layers of TeXtreme carbon. The Prime 3.0 is a torsionally rigid ski, made for high speeds and big lines.
With a 108mm waist width, extended tail rocker, and progressive shape, the Prime 3.0 lets you arc fast turns and slash them out in a flash. The Prime 3.0 has got you covered from couloirs to catching freshies, while the lightweight construction makes it easy to slap on the skins and head back up for more.
Notched tails are ideal for attaching climbs skins.

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.
