“I went everywhere and the ski kept up,” remarked one tester about Faction’s 3.Zero. This ski’s ability to perform in varied conditions on any type of terrain makes it a repeat Editor’s Pick for 2012/13. Boasting a fairly stiff flex pattern, this ski is stable. “Very solid, very reliable,” notes one individual. Utilizing tip and tail rocker, the 3.Zero rocks through pow and crud. According to another tester, the 3.Zero is also “a surprisingly floaty ski. It works really well in pow.” Traditional camber underfoot ensures you’ll be able to carve on the hardpack, too. “Very solid for carving. It’s quick and holds like Gorilla Glue,” reported another.
