Description

The Agent 3 2023 are touring skis for men from Faction.

The Agent 3 is the widest ski and is ideal for skiing in deep snow, but still lightweight for easy climbing. Ultra versatile, it will perform as well in powder snow as in transformed spring snow.

For starters, the Agent 3 2023 has a fairly reasonable weight of 1730 g per ski (178 cm). Thanks to its ultra-light Karuba core it is just as efficient on the ascent as it is on the descent. This core provides good flex and absorbs vibrations without adding weight. Its lightweight construction, thanks to unidirectionally oriented carbon strips, gives it even greater stability, strength and rigidity in all conditions!

Its sandwich construction produces better surface contact as well as remarkable adjustments to suit the terrain. The Titanal reinforcement plates under the mounts, above the lightweight core to guarantee a totally secure grip of the binding screws and, above all, durability of the core.

The Agent 3 is also equipped with Surf Zones technology: its rocker offers better lift and facilitates the pivoting of the ski while its tapered tips move the widest part of the ski back towards the centre for perfect gliding without risk of accidental edge catches.

With its 106 mm waist, it is a large ski ideally suited to powder. Thanks to its standard camber and its tip and heel rockers, the Agent 3 is very efficient in all snow conditions. It will be the perfect companion for you to conquer your favourite untouched spots!

So, if you're looking for fresh snow and springtime corridors to ski away from the crowds, the Agent 3 2023 is for you!

Shape
:

Freeride Flat Heel:
This type of traditional flat tail is designed to offer maximum speed, edge control and stability when turning at full throttle. The light rocker adds a touch of modernity, and this shape will allow you to execute your turns even more easily and will avoid any snagging in fresh snow.

Construction:

Lightweight Karuba core:
Karuba is a very strong, extremely light wood. It's not well known, but it provides a good flex and absorbs vibration without adding weight, which makes it ideal for the core of a touring ski that will perform equally well in ascents and descents.

Sidecuts with elliptic radii:
The sidecuts with elliptic radii consist of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radius on the front and rear parts of the ski. The long radius underfoot allows for faster and easier pivoting, while the shorter radii allow turns to be started more gently. These sidecuts are perfectly suited to a wide range of turn angles and sizes.

2.5 mm XL edges :
One might think that seven tenths of a millimetre doesn't have much of an effect, but when it comes to edges, everything matters. The 2.5 mm edges are 35% thicker than our standard 1.8 mm edges, which are already very sturdy. This addition of steel allows the riders to have a ski that will resist longer to the "stresses" associated with certain techniques.

Carbon strips:
Between 8 and 10 carbon strips are positioned unidirectionally on either side of the core to achieve even greater stability without adding weight. Each carbon strip is woven so as to provide the greatest strength and rigidity in all directions.

Surf Zones:
Surf Zone technology is designed to combine the Rocker with the tapered shape of the tips to ensure that these two key characteristics are in perfect harmony. The Rocker provides lift and helps in the pivoting of the ski, while the Tapered Tip allows the widest part of the ski to be closer to the centre and thus reduce the risk of unwanted gripping by the edge. This technology provides excellent lift and a smooth ride in all conditions.

Full Strength Sidewall:
The full strength sidewall is a construction that applies layers of protective material along the edges of the sidewall, between the edge and the topsheet from above. The edges offer the best possible stability and grip when turning, while protecting the wooden core, edges and cover sheet from possible external impacts and damage.

Tip and tail cap:
On skis equipped with the tip and tail cap construction, Faction place ultra-solid sidewalls at the central part of the ski but wrap the topsheet around the edge of the ski to the tip and tail edges. This protects the ski from impacts and thus improves its durability, while reducing the total weight of the ski, favouring freestyle and ski touring.

Titanal reinforcement plates under the bindings:
When you go for a day's hiking in the backcountry, you must have complete faith in your equipment. The Titanal reinforcement plates are positioned above our lightweight cores to guarantee that the binding screws are completely secure. These monocoque plates are designed to accept either alpine or hiking bindings, thus improving the durability of these ultra-light cores.

Team review

L'Agent 3.0 est un bon ski de randonnée, destiné aux skieurs qui veulent un peu tout faire ! Polyvalent avec ses 106 mm au patin, il est à l'aise en poudreuse. On aime son côté léger et du coup bien maniable à la montée.

La présence de ses deux rockers permet de bien flotter en neige fraiche et la présence d'une bande de titane sous le pied permet de bien appuyer quand il le faut ! 

Les + : léger et performant à la fois, stabilité, polyvalence

Les - : R.A.S
