Faction Candide 1.0 Skis 2014

Now in its second year, the Faction x Candide Thovex collaboration continues to push boundaries with its innovative use of new materials, technology and design: "When I'm skiing park or rallying around on-piste, this is my ski of choice. The Balsa / Flax core makes the ski lightweight and with that comes more versatility. You can ski on loner skis for stability bit hit rails and spin with the same ease of short skis." - Candide Thovex. If you're looking for everyday, on-piste/park-and-pipe twigs, look no further than the Faction Candide 1.0 Skis. With a balsa/flax core and medium turning radius, these lightweight skis are a great option for those looking for a spin friendly on-piste ski.
Rocker Type
Traditional Camber - Maximum tip to tail responsiveness for positive turn initiation and feel on-piste
3/5 ( 1 softest - 5 hardest)
Balsa/Flax Core - This core uses strips of Balsa vertically laminated together with flax fibers. This creates an incredibly light yet torsionally stiff core that provides all the feel of a full wood core. Skis made using this technology are around 20% lighter than their poplar & ash-cored equivalent.
Custom Matte Topsheets
ABS plastic
PTEX 4000 base
Walzhol Huber 1.9 mm edges
Binding Compatibility
We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.


  • Terrain: Park & Pipe
    Park & Pipe
    Park and pipe skis, often called freestyle skis, are for skiers who spend the majority of their time on jumps, rails, and jibs of all kinds. Traditionally park and pipe skis have narrower waists with full camber profiles, but this category is incorporating more rocker patterns and different shapes. You will almost always find these skis with twin tips as well as other park specific features like thicker, more durable edges, dense extruded bases, and butter zones.
  • Ability Level: Intermediate-Advanced
    The majority of skiers/snowboarders fall into this level, whether you like to carve on groomers or venture into the powder. These skis/snowboards may be somewhat wider than beginner-intermediate skis, usually with a stronger wood core and sandwich sidewall construction. Depending on the type of ski, intermediate-advanced level skis may have full camber, rocker, or some combination of the two.
  • Rocker Type: Camber
    Camber is the traditional profile for skis offering skiers lots of edge hold, especially on harder snow. A cambered ski has a smooth arch underfoot and contact points near the tip and tail when unweighted. Camber skis excel at carving on hard snow; you won’t ever see a ski racer on anything other than cambered skis.
  • Turning Radius: Medium
    17-22 m radius is best for all-mountain and park & pipe.
  • Core/Laminates: Wood
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
