Product Info

The Faction Candide 1.0 Skis are back, burlier and better than ever. With the likes of Tim McChesney, Tom Granier, Will Berman and of course the man himself slaying everything from park to urban on these bad boys, you know they need to live up to the test. New for 14/15, Faction has incorporated a Carbon reinforcement laminate for added protection from urban and park destruction. Super thick 2.5 mm edges also compliment the Candide 1.0, so you'll be sliding rails for as long as you darn well please. The Candide 1.0's softer jib flex and fully symmetrical shape round out these slay blades, for a winter of shenanigans you won't soon forget. Yezir!

Product Details

Rocker Type

Tip & Tail RockerTip & Tail Rocker with varying amounts of camber underfoot gives maximum versatility and float off-piste.

M Tip Rocker5 mm of Rocker over 150 mm of length

S Tail Rocker5 mm of Rocker over a 100 mm length

5 mm CamberMaximum rebound and quick turn initiation


Medium-Soft FlexJibs and rollers beware. Butters are incoming.


Full Length SidecutClassic, smooth sidecut for full contact when edging in all conditions


Freestyle TwinSymmetrical construction for incomparable forward and switch riding and landings


Poplar / Ash CoreFaction's standard core material. Poplar 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.


Matte EC4060 TopsheetMatte EC4060 topsheets require no lacquering, saving around 100gm / pair, and reduces the use of not-quite-environmentally friendly lacquer. It also shows through the natural structure of the underlying laminate layers.

FibreglassLaminates like fibreglass are used to compliment the properties of the core material by increasing torsional strength, edge-grip and rebound.

Carbon ReinforcingUsed 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 4000Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax better


2.5 mm EdgesThese edges are stronger than the 1.8 mm edges, but are slightly heavier.


Silkscreen PrintingUsed on 90% of Faction skis, silkscreen printing provides bright, strong colours that help our skis pop in-store and on-snow. Unlike the sublimation process used by many competitors, very little waste is created using this method, and water-based inks are used to reduce environmental impacts.

Binding Compatibility

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