Agent 1.0x Ski

The Agent Series consists of Faction's backcountry-specific skis, and the Agent 1.0x Ski is the skinniest option for skimo and icier days. It has the same shape and construction as the original Agent 2.0; the only difference is a bluer color. Its 86mm waist carves firmer snow and holds an edge down steep, narrower, more complicated lines. Thanks to a full carbon weave, the Agent feels light on the uphill and stiff on the downhill. Faction shaped the ski with plenty of camber underfoot to hold an edge and maintain a surprisingly moderate turning radius. The tail is a bit flatter for a freeride-oriented performance, and the elliptical sidecut initiates tighter or wider turns when needed. Faction built the ski out of karuba wood for lightness, and stiffened it up the full carbon weave and a titanal plate underfoot for binding retention. The underfoot also has sidewalls for added durability, and the capped tip and tail decrease weight and increase torsional responsiveness. The top sheet has a glossy finish for snow- and abrasion-resistance.

  • Backcountry ski best-used for ski mountaineering and spring tours
  • 86mm waist is the skinniest backcountry ski from Faction
  • Camber underfoot holds an edge on icy snow and steep lines
  • Surf Zones keep tip and tail over snow while setting skin tracks
  • Light wood core with woven carbon for a stiff flex and low weight
  • Titanal plate underfoot ensures proper binding retention
  • Half-capped sidewalls and anti-chip caps at tail and tip add durability

Recommended Sizing Guide

Your ski size is largely determined by both your skiing ability and your preferred style of skiing. For example, an expert skier in Vermont will ski a far different ski than an expert in British Columbia. So take a look at our chart and explanations and find your perfect fit. Your weight also plays a large factor in finding the right ski. If you are either under or over average weight for your height consider downsizing or upsizing, respectively.
