It’s our Collective responsibility to reduce our impact on the outdoor spaces we love. So we launched an ambitious project with Protect Our Winters Switzerland to create a new forward-thinking Ski: The Agent 4.0 POW Collab.
If you look closely at the composition of most Skis you will find wood cores, glass or carbon fiber laminates, steel edges, ABS Sidewalls, polypropylene bases and petroleum-based waxes. Molding all of these elements into premium Skis requires large machinery, which in turn require a lot of energy to operate. Depending on where a Ski is made, this energy may come from coal—the highest CO2-emitting source of energy.
In partnering with our friends at Protect Our Winters we aimed to develop a unique eco-conscious Ski that is fully aligned with the non-profit’s climate recommendations as well as Faction’s need for high-end quality and performance. And so the Agent 4.0 POW Collab Ski was born.
