Product Info

The Faction Agent 4 x POW Collab Skis are a special edition version of the Agent 4.0, adorned with art created by Swiss POW ambassador Simon Charrière. In support of Protect our Winters AND big mountain touring missions, the Agent 4.0 can handle heavy duty descents in the most challenging conditions. Built around a Karuba wood core, the 4.0 sports a full carbon weave laminate for snap and power, full strength sidewalls, and a Titanal binding plate underfoot. Butters be gone, if you lean fast and furious in the backcountry and beyond, this is the collab for you.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker-Camber-RockerTip Rocker: 179 = 410mm, 185 = 430mm, 191 = 450mm | Camber: All Sizes = 2mm | Tail Rocker: 179 = 250mm, 185 = 260mm, 191 = 270mm

Flex

Flex Rating7 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

Moustache FlexThis flex works best for most skiers. Enjoy stability in front of, and behind the binding area to provide solid edge hold. Then, we transition to smooth, progressive flex in the tips and tails to easily absorb all the different bumps and snow debris the mountain throws at you. This flex allows for an easier turn initiation and finish.

Sidecut

Elliptical SidecutElliptical Sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths, angles and mounting positions.

Shape

Freeride Flat TailTraditional flat tail design is built for speed, ultimate edge grip and control throughout charging turns. Brought into the modern day with a slight tail rocker, this shape is easier than ever to slash your turn into a slarve and won’t hook up in fresh conditions.

Tip Height73mm

Tail Height27mm

Core

Lightweight Karuba CoreKaruba is an extremely lightweight woodcore with good strength properties. Despite being little-known, Karuba provides excellent flex and vibration absorption capabilities without adding weight, making it an ideal woodcore for a touring ski that performs just as well on the uphill as on the downhill.

Laminates

Full Carbon WeaveBetween 8 and 12 strips of carbon, sandwiching either side of the ski’s woodcore, are laid unidirectionally, providing extra stability to the ski, without adding weight to the build. Each carbon strip is woven into the fiberglass to provide strength and stiffness in the full length of the ski.

Titanal Binding PlateAdds pullout strength with minimal weight gain.

Sidewalls

Microcap Full Strength SidewallMicro-cap construction is a hybrid of a premium, sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile joint that can be prone to chipping.

Edges

XL 2.5mm EdgesFractions of a millimeter might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges stack an extra 25% of height on top of our already super-durable standard 2.0mm edges. This extra steel gives the rider a pair of skis that are going to take more abuse and last longer.
