Faction Candide 2.0 Skis 2018

It's Candide Thovex's ski and it's been brought to the masses. The Faction CT 2.0 Skis are ideal for an all-mountain ripper who wants a flexy feel in the park to butter and press with. The 2.0 is perfect for someone needing a versatile ski that really finds it's stride in park. Shaped symmetrically, so you can ride it regular or switch with equal ease. Carbon reinforcement in their core dampens the entirety of the ski, allowing super solid landings no matter how sketchy you get in the air. The Faction Candide 2.0 Skis are a one ski quiver for the freestyle-oriented all mountain skier.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker325mm rocker in the tip, 2mm camber underfoot, and 310mm rocker in the tail.

Flex

Medium-Stiff Flex6/10 - Stable at speed or on big landings, but still playful enough to butter and press.

Sidecut

Symmetrical ShapeDesigned to handle identically forward and switch.

Core

Poplar/Beech Wood CoreGreat hold on hard snow with a light and snappy feel.

Laminates

Carbon Reinforcement Underfoot

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 3000 BaseUsed on most Faction Skis. Sintered PTEX 3000 base material is more porous and holds wax well.

Graphics

Matte Textured 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.

Look Pivot 14 Dual WTR Ski Bindings 2018

If you crave the performance and security of the Pivot but simply cannot justify the Pivot 18, the Look Pivot 14 Dual WTR Ski Bindings are for you.
