The Agent 3.0 stands out as one of the more versatile skis Faction has produced in recent memory. Featuring a sturdy, lightweight caruba wood core, full carbon weave, and a Titanal mounting plate, these bright orange sticks are made for full-throttle descents beyond the gates. While the width and freeride-oriented shape warrants use on softer snow, the Agent 3.0 can maintain damp performance in variable snow and is especially fun in wide-open bowls of spring corn. Skiers with freestyle roots or freeride styles will be happy with this directional Faction as a backcountry quiver addition or a one-ski option ideal for trips into the untouched snow beyond the ski area via both touring and mechanized assistance.
