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. "The Candide 3.0 has had a slight overhaul from last year, benefiting from the addition of the XL tip/tail rocker and taking out the camber underfoot to make it more playful. The balsa / flax core keeps the ski light and the 112 mm waist makes it great across a variety of conditions, from powder fields through trees to BC Booters." - Candide Thovex. Looking for a big-mountain, pow field, BC booter slayer? The Faction
Candide 3.0 Skis have got you covered. With 15 mm rise over 300 mm in both the tip and tail, zero camber underfoot, and a 112 mm waist, these lightweight skis are a great option for the experienced skier looking for a playful, all mountain / big mountain ski.
XL Tip & Tail Rocker / Zero Camber - Twice as much rocker as the standard Faction version provides, as much float as you'll ever need. Couple this with zero camber underfoot and you have a ski that provides instant edge responsiveness off-piste.

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.
