Faction Kit Giveaway: Kicking off the 2013/14 Gear Weekly newsletter series

If you’ve arrived at this page, you likely did so via our Gear Weekly newsletter—the first of 2013/14. And for those who did, you’ve officially been entered for a chance to win this kit from Faction.


It’s that time of year, folks—the Gear Weekly newsletter returns to the lineup, providing you a regular stream of badass skiing gear, in-depth reviews and outrageous product giveaways.

To kick off the 2013/14 program, we’ve teamed up with Faction to give away this rad-tastic kit, including a pair of Candide’s CT 4.0 skis (a Freeskier Editor’s Pick winner in the 2014 Buyer’s Guide), the Oxley jacket, Shackleton pant and Agent helmet.

One lucky winner will receive:

Candide Thovex CT 4.0 skis

“The CT 4.0 caters to playful skiers who spend their days on the prowl for deep pow. Complete with tip and tail rocker and flat camber, this beast is happiest when cutting through chop, charging down rowdy lines or popping off pillows. “A stable ski that likes to slice through the powder,” said one tester. Utilizing a balsa and flax core, the ski is very lightweight, even for its beefy size. “Makes you ski exactly like Candide!” said another tester. And while that’s quite honestly just not true—there’s no shame in pretending.” – Freeskier editors’ review

MSRP $1,099 | Lengths 175, 183, 190 | Dimensions 150/122/140

Oxley jacket

“Faction’s Oxley Jacket finds the balance between urban street style and true on-mountain performance. Zip off sleeves and a liner designed by contemporary artist Taka Sudo highlight this 10,000mm/10,000br Toray Delfy® piece that will keep you nice and toasty with 80gm/60gm Thinsulate insulation.” – Manufacturer’s info

Shackleton pant

“Faction’s Shackleton Pant balances lightweight insulation and technical function. This piece features a 10,000mm/10,000br Toray Delfy® shell and a highly technical triple lining configuration with 40gm insulation in the seat and knees, 260gm brushed tricot fleece in the legs and breathable mesh for optimal temperature control.” – Manufacturer’s info

Agent helmet

“Our Flex-tech EPS inserts shape themselves to fit your head, whilst increasing air circulation and heat dispersion. Fully removable earpads and washable interior pads provide the ultimate in versatility from winter all the way through to summer riding.” – Manufacturer’s info
