DESCRIPTION

The Faction 2021 Agent 1.0X is a progressive flat tail ski that is great for touring and days out on pistes. For all levels of skiers, the Agent 1.0X is a mid flex, lightweight touring ski to help you escape the crowds, explore the margins and make your own adventures. The same construction and build as the Agent 1.0 with extra lengths and alternative topsheet to boot.

You'll love this ski if: You want a lightweight, "tourable" ski that puts a huge emphasis on the downhill experience; You think light weight is important but durability and stability is better; You want a modern tip that will help you rise above the snow and easily initiate the turn; You prefer a modern shape with a stiffer tail that supports a strong finish to the turn; You want one ski to do it all: long tours, short tours, inbounds, your one ski to travel with.

As a proud member of 1% for the Planet, Faction is committed to donating 1% of all sales from the Agent Series to support organizations, individuals and events that are focused on bringing about a positive impact on the environment we love and enjoy.

  • SKIS ONLY
  • Bindings and poles sold separately

The Agent Series boasts arguably the best strength to light-weight ratio in the industry. The combination of a lightweight Karuba Wood Core with a Full Carbon Weave makes this ski the perfect "Crossover" model. That is to say, this ski will hit the mark for skiers looking for either a touring ski with an emphasis on the downhill experience, or a lightweight ski to mount with a traditional alpine binding, for inspiring all-mountain versatility in a package that's light enough to keep your legs fresh all the way up until the 4 o'clock bell. The Agent is incredibly lightweight, yet thanks to our Full Carbon Weave, it boasts heaps of torsional strength. The Agent skis feature a thicker topsheet, base and edge than the industry average, aiding with durability and downhill performance. For those looking to mount this ski with a touring binding, you'll have one ski to do it all. For a big trip, you can pack just one pair of skis feeling confident that you'll have the right tool to bring a big smile to your face, no matter the terrain, and no matter the conditions. Agent Skis are stamped with the 1% for the Planet seal of approval.

In the past year, Faction's large-scale efforts & massive investment to shift its manufacturing into new world-class facilities is without question the most aggressive and sweeping manufacturing shift seen across the industry — resulting in unmatched quality assurance.

Faction's world-class ski engineers are among the most sought-after in the industry — their unique expertise culminates in skis that boast best-in-class strength to weight ratio, as well as superior durability.

Choosing the right ski length depends on a mix of different factors. On a basic level, height, weight and ability should give you a good idea of what length of ski you should go for.

As a rule of thumb, start with a ski around nose to eyebrow level height. If you are just starting out, or at an intermediate level, then we suggest that you take some length off. If you’re a more advanced/expert skier, then we suggest you should push your ski length towards your full height or even further. If you are heavier than the average weight for your size, feel free to add some ski length as well.

Go towards the shorter side of our range if you’re choosing a narrower ski and will spend most of your time on hard snow. 

Go towards the longer side if you’re skiing fast and aggressively in off-piste conditions.

For a mix of the two, choose a ski somewhere in between.
