The All-New Prime Series from Faction Skis

Taking Backcountry Skiing to a Higher Level of Awesome

Developed by professional skier Sam Anthamatten and engineer Patrick Sannes, the goal behind the Prime Series was to develop a ski that was both lightweight and stable. This brand new, award-winning series is solid enough for technical, high-speed descents and varying snow conditions. Built with a lightweight, hybrid balsa flex core and textreme carbon, these skis make for an easy way up and a confident, fun way down. 

Prime 1.0

With a long ascent in tow, the Prime 1.0 is your go-to. Perfect for laying it over on edge and going arc to arc at high speeds, yet the generous tip and tail rocker keep it controlled when things get tight.

Perfect isn't an exaggeration when it comes to the Prime 2.0. The lightweight ski is both responsive and torsionally rigid, excelling at high speeds and conquering technical terrain.

With a trifecta of awards, the Prime 3.0 is a standout when it comes to backcountry skis that can handle any type of terrain. The progressive shape and extended tail rocker allow you to snap arcs and tackle whatever conditions come your way.

Prime 4.0 - Fall-Line Ski of The Year

Developed alongside Swiss ski legend Sam Anthamatten, the Prime 4.0 is designed to conquer technical ascents and descents without compromise. Being the widest ski in the series, the 4.0 floats on freshies and rips through crud. 

About Faction Skis

Twelve years on and although everything has changed, not much really has. Having been at the driving end of new technologies like super fat skis, rocker, lightweight hybrid cores, recycled materials, symmetrical twin tips and a nod back to traditional, hand-crafted manufacturing techniques, the industry is still the same.

It's the independents who are leading the way. Led by skiers who work for the love of the community they are part of. 

And that's exactly who we are. An independent group of skiers, artists, film-makers, staff, partners and fans that has grown over the past 12 years to more than just a sum of its parts, united by a love for the mountains and the tools that allow us to escape there.
