Building off the shape and success of the Dictator series, the Faction Agent 3.0 is a lightweight touring/freeride machine that’s ready to kick some ass. If you’re wondering who this ski is for, think about Faction athlete Sam Anthamatten, hiking and skiing steep open faces in the Swiss Alps. But it’s not just for devotees like Sam, Faction built in a bit of early taper and sturdy flex pattern that makes it a dream for anyone with alpine ambitions, and its flat tail with extended camber gives the Agent 3.0 that extra bite on the steeps. It’s noticeably light on the feet—that’s thanks to a full carbon layup and karuba wood core—but that didn’t stop our testers from ranking it best in class in this downhill category.

FREESKIER tester thoughts:

“BEAUTY of a ski! It is so light, but stable and playful as hell. The highest performing ski I’ve tested for its weight. Would ski everyday.”

“The versatility of this ski is hard to match. Elliptical radius allows you to shorten up the turns in the chop and crud while absolutely laying trenches on the flats. Despite no metal in its construction, stability is super impressive.”
