Like Candide, If the mountain is your playground, and natural features are your preferred launching point, the Faction Candide 4.0 Skis will blow you away. At 122 mm underfoot with 0 camber, nothing will sink you, and edging in the steep and deep is a breeze. Plus, the weight of a typical large ski simply isn't there thanks to the Hybrid Balsa/Flax core, cutting down on swing weight and allowing you to spin, stomp and slay the mountain like never before. The Faction Candide 4.0 Skis are the ultimate combination of float, stiffness for stability at speed, and low weight. Take your skiing to the next level!
Rocker Type
Flat Camber - Ultimate edge-response off-piste
XL Tip Rocker - 15 mm of Rocker over 300 mm of length
XL Tail Rocker - 15 mm of Rocker over 300 mm of length
Tip & Tail Rocker - Tip & Tail Rocker with varying amounts of camber underfoot gives maximum versatility and float off-piste.
 
Flex
Stiff - For strong skiers that like to ski fast
Sidecut
Full Length Sidecut - Classic, smooth sidecut for full contact when edging in all conditions
Shape
Lightweight Backcountry Freestyle Twin - Ultimate flotation, swing weight and stability at speed
Core
Balsa/Flax Core - Balsa is an exceptionally light hardwood. Laminated vertically together divided by strips of woven flax (also known as linseed), to provide additional torsional and compression strength. Lighter than Poplar/Ash but more expensive.
 
Laminates
Matte EC4060 Topsheet - Matte 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.
 
Phenol Binding Plate - Phenol is a hard plastic material that secures the binding screws. The one-piece design fits most touring bindings with centre screws.
 
Fibreglass - Laminates like fibreglass are used to compliment the properties of the core material by increasing torsional strength, edge-grip and rebound.
 
Sidewalls
Sandwich Construction - Used 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.
 
Base
Die-Cut Ptex 4000 - Sintered PTEX 4000 base material is more porous and holds wax better
 
Edges
1.8 mm Edges - Used on 99% of Faction skis, the 1.8 mm hardened steel edges are strong and dependable.
 
Graphics
Silkscreen Printing - Used 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.

Specs

  • Terrain: Big Mountain, Powder
    Big Mountain
    Big mountain skis are designed for charging big lines with high speeds and big airs. These skis varry in width from wide, powder-oriented skis for skiing Alaska spines to narrower, mixed condition skis for ripping the beat up headwall at your local mountain. Skis in this category tend to be on the stiffer side, often with more rocker in the tip and less in the tail.
    Powder
    These skis are for the deep days. If you like to find powder stashes at your local resort, go on backcountry missions for the freshest of fresh or heli ski trips to BC, powder skis are what you need to stay afloat. Skis in the powder category are wide and most often have some form of rocker or early rise plus a relatively soft flex. Many powder skis today are versatile enough to handle mixed conditions and harder snow.
  • Ability Level: Advanced-Expert
    Advanced-Expert
    Whether you charge the steepest lines, carve with race-like precision, hit the biggest jumps or halfpipes; advanced to expert level skis/snowboards are for the more aggressive rider. You will often find the addition of layers of metal, carbon, bamboo, or other stringers in these. These features work to make a stiffer ski/snowboard with more power and rebound.
  • Rocker Type: Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker
    Rocker/Flat/Rocker is a variation on the rocker theme that seeks to provide a little more hard snow edgehold and pop than full rocker while retaining ease of turning and float. Performance is between a fully rockered ski and a rocker/camber/rocker ski.
  • Turning Radius: Long
    Long
    > 22 m radius is best for powder and big-mountain.
  • Core/Laminates: Balsa/Flax
  • Tail Type: Full Twin Tip
    Full Twin Tip
    Desinged to allow you to ski backwards, full twin tips are found primarily on park & pipe skis and freestyle powder skis. More and more, we are seeing twin tips on all-mountain skis of all abilities, as it makes it a little easier to get around, and for the most part does not inhibit forward skiing.
