Womens Touring/All MTN
Gear Buddy Opinion
The Faction agent series was designed to be skied both in and out of bounds. The series is relatively lightweight making it suitable for uphill ascents when paired with touring bindings, but places most of its emphasis on the downhill experience. The 2.0 is the most versatile of the agent series. It can handle in bounds, out of bounds, long tours, short tours, soft snow and hard snow. So really whatever your throw in its way the Agent 2.0 can handle. All of this can be had at just 1410g per ski.
I recently was able to try out the Agent and I had a blast! I am 5'10" and an aggressive skier and was put on the 163 (it was the only size available). I definitely would have liked to me on the 171. I honestly didn't know about the Agent before skiing it and was super impressed. Being 96 underfoot I was able to get edge to edge quickly and make nice turns. When going fast I felt confident and locked in to my turns. Pleasantly surprised and highly recommend giving a go
