Product Info

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.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Traditional CamberMaximum tip to tail responsiveness for positive turn initiation and feel on-piste


3/5 ( 1 softest - 5 hardest)


Balsa/Flax CoreThis 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.
