A lightweight and meticulously-crafted weapon from the mind of a freeride legend, which uses only the finest ingredients

Sam Anthamatten knows a thing or two about life in the mountains. As a guide and a FWT champ, he’s familiar with what it takes to make a great ski. You might suspect, then, that when given one of Faction’s top designers and an almost unlimited budget, he’d come up with a pretty tasty collection of skis – and you’d be right.

A real star in the line-up

The Faction Prime 2.0 occupies a sweetspot in the Prime range. They’re all designed to be light enough for the most technical climbs, and powerful enough for the most challenging descents – and they are – but with a versatile 98mm waist, 410mm rocker in the nose, 2mm camber height underfoot and an extended 420mm tail rocker, the 2.0 is a real go-anywhere ski. Nimble edge-to-edge but with plenty of float – it’s got stability and confidence written all over it.

Carbon-infused and ready for anything

At the centre is a hybrid balsa and flax core, which is incredibly lightweight and climb-friendly. But with multiple layers of aerospace-grade Textreme carbon, it’s stiff, torsionally rigid, and solid on an edge with very little chatter. Drop into steep couloirs and the tighter centre of the multi-dimensional sidecut combines with that extended tail rocker to allow for controlled short radius turns. But open her up Anthamatten-style and the longer radius combines with underfoot camber and all that carbon to deliver straight-line stability like nothing else. Phew… we’re getting hot under the collar just thinking about it!
