Product Info

Candide is the best skier on the planet. This is not up for discussion. And if Candide puts his name on something, you better believe there's something to it. The Faction CT 1.0 Skis feature an all-new micro-cap to reduce chipping, along with a silky-smooth flex and insane swing weight for agility both on and off the ground. Built to go fast and encourage you to take chances while handling better than just about any park ski on the market, the Faction CT 1.0 Skis just might propel you to slopestyle stardom this winter.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker10 mm of rocker over 150 mm in the tip, 5 mm of camber underfoot, 5 mm of rocker over 100 mm in the tail.

Flex

Medium-Stiff FlexStable at speed or on big landings, but still playful enough to butter and press.

Shape

Symmetrical ShapeDesigned to handle identically forward and switch.

Core

Poplar / Beech Core

Laminates

Carbon ReinforcingThe carbon layer is used to provide additional strength to the core against use on rails.

Sidewalls

Sandwich ConstructionUsed on Most of Faction's 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.

Micro-Cap ProtectionContinuing efforts to improve chip-resistance in their skis, Faction incorporated a 'micro' cap where the topsheet meets the sidewall on sandwich constructed skis.

Base

Die-Cut PTEX 4000 BaseUsed on most Faction Skis. Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax well.

Edges

2.5mm EdgesThe 2.5mm edges are stronger than 1.8mm edges to withstand rail abuse.

Graphics

Matte TopsheetMatte ICP8210 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.

Binding Compatibility

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

    Comments about Faction Candide 1.0 Skis 2017:

    I tested this ski in Loveland, CO's park early in the 2016/2017 season. Found this ski to be stiffer than most park skis. Many park skis these days are buttery, soft noodles...but not these :)
    I thought they were playful where they needed to be, but stable enough on hard-pack to actually carve. They are full symmetrical and need to be mounted near Candide's line or they ski smeary and you're constantly having to focus on staying forward. These skis ride switch very, very well. Camber underfoot and a beefy vertical sidewall gives you lots of pop too. This is a super playful, poppy ski that's buttery yet stable.
