Product Info

Candide's personal choice when there's a meter of fresh on the Great Wall, the Faction Candide 5.0 Skis throw down like nothing else when the going gets deep. And while we don't guarantee your skiing will start to approach Candide's on these, they certainly won't hurt. This 122 mm waisted monster resurrects the OG Candide 4.0 profile with its turn-on-a-dime flat camber, but substitutes a lighter Balsa-Poplar-Flax core.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Flat / Rocker420mm rocker in the tips. Flat (zero camber) underfoot for maneuverability, quick pivots and slashes. 400mm rocker in the tails.

Flex

Flex: 8 / 10(1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

Shape

Directional TwinA considerably skinnier tail width than in the tip provides ultimate downhill performance for attacking the mountain. A twin tip in the tail encourages playfulness and freestyle attitude, meaning you can ride switch without problem.

Core

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.

Laminates

Phenol Binding PlatePhenol reinforcement plate laid on top of the hybrid balsa/flax core ensures binding screws hold like nothing else and add durability to these super lightweight cores.

Sidewalls

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

Base

Die-Cut P-Tex 3000

Additional Features

Anti-Scratch Textured Topsheet

Binding Compatibility

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