Product Info

The most versatile of all the Candide variants, the Faction Candide 3.0 Skis rock a do-it-all 108 mm waist, directional "true" twin shape, and plenty of rocker at both ends. A light but stout hybrid core of Balsa, Poplar and Flax fiber is the foundation of this and other Candide models, and it's a great, light and strong way to build a ski. If you watched Candide latest video and are dreaming of having "one of those days," this is the setup for you.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker330 mm tip rocker, 2 mm camber, 320 mm subtle tail rocker


Flex: 7 / 10(1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)


Directional True TwinThere is some tail taper in this ski, but the design is meant to encourage switch skiing and jibbing.


Hybrid Balsa-Poplar-Flax CoreBalsa is a sandy-colored softwood with exceptional strength for its light weight. Reinforce the super lightweight Balsa with earthy-colored, robust Flax fibre plus Poplar strips and you have a durable wood core that holds an edge like skis twice the weight. During the drying process, cells of water in the Balsa wood are driven off, leaving behind a strong core with no excess weight.


Titanal Binding PlateWhen you're on a day-long touring trip in the backcountry, you need to rely on your gear. Titanal reinforcement plates are laid up on top of the lightweight cores ensuring that your binding screws hold. This one-piece design fits alpine and touring bindings, adding trustworthy durability to these lightweight cores.


Full Strength Sidewall Construction with MicrocapSandwich sidewall construction for power and edgehold, with a topsheet that wraps around and meets the sidewall for durability.


Die-Cut P-Tex 3000

Anti-Scratch Textured Topsheet
