Faction’s limited release Agent 3.0 – the new touring ski opening up freeride possibilities in the backcountry. Swiss freeride skier, Sam Anthamatten put the new Agent 3.0 to the test on the Äschhorn in Zermatt, Switzerland. Here’s the verdict:
“The lightweight core saves the legs during long days going up, and it’s solid enough to take on any kind of conditions on the way down. The extra width under foot makes the Agent 3.0 stable, floating through pow, catching big landings- the Agent 3.0 is the ultimate free-touring weapon.”
Introducing the brand-new, lightweight, touring-focused Agent 3.0 limited release—on sale now via factionskis.com and via select retail partners (listed below). Designed in Switzerland and made in Austria with the highest manufacturing and quality standards the industry has to offer, the Agent 3.0 boasts a lightweight core, progressive shape, high-tech carbon weave, balanced flex and perfectly engineered rocker.
Easy on the uphill, and equally capable in the deepest snow, the day-after-the-storm chop or the springtime corn, this ultra-versatile offering will be hailed as one of the hottest touring skis of the year.
The Agent 3.0’s graphics are designed by French designer and rider, Lionel Hachemi. Featuring colors inspired by the local Larch tree that turns the alps orange and gold in the fall.
