Product Info

The ski of choice for evoCollective athlete Tim McChesney, the Faction Candide 1.0 Skis are a pair of park-oriented rippers with a true symmetrical sidecut and a playful flex. Their vibration absorbing poplar/ash wood core is wrapped in Triaxial Fibreglass and carbon reinforcing underfoot to create a bomber feel that holds up to regular abuse on rails and jumps. Don't be fooled into thinking that these babies can't hang outside the park though, because their 90mm waist paired with the tip and tail rocker allows the Faction Candide 1.0 Skis to be an incredibly versatile and fun pair of freestyle sticks.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker10 mm rocker in the tip / 5 mm camber underfoot / 5 mm rocker in the tail


Flex Rating 3 (1 Soft - 6 Stiff)Medium flex for predictable handling in the park and on the slopes.


Short Turning RadiusQuick and agile edge to edge at all speeds.


Symmetrical Twin OutlineTip and tail dimensions are identical for reliable and consistent handling both forward and switch.


Poplar / Ash CorePoplar is a medium-weight, damp, vibration-absorbing softwood. Ash is a heavier hardwood that compliments the Poplar by increasing stiffness, responsiveness and providing a solid base for the binding screws.


Triaxial FibreglassFibreglass is used in two different formats to aid the compressional strength of the core and ensure long-lasting pop.

Carbon ReinforcingCarbon layer used to provide additional strength to the core against use on rails.


Sandwich ConstructionUsed on most Faction skis. A traditional manufacturing method that provides strength, durability, good grip and edge hold. Rubber is used to dampen vibration and bond the base layers to the core.


Die-Cut PTEX 4000Used on most Faction skis. Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax better than PTEX 2000.


2.5 mm EdgesUsed on the Candide 1.0 & 2.0, the 2.5 mm edges are stronger than the 1.8 mm edges.


Matte ICP8210 TopsheetMatte ICP8210 topsheets require no lacquering saving around 100 gm/pair, and reduces the use of not-quite-environmentally friendly lacquer. It also shows through the natural structure of the underlying laminate layers.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.
