Product Info

"Number one," "gold medal," and "first place" all bring to mind the Faction Candide CT 1.0 Skis. Sporting a fresh topsheet, the latest CT 1.0 retains all the technology and performance you've become accustomed to. Prepared to rip rails on a daily basis, the 2.5mm edges dampen hits while providing excellent edge control. Speaking of dampening, the carbon reinforcement transfers impact throughout the entirety of the ski and provides a feeling of confidence at speed. Nimble at it's core and built to push your boundaries, the micro-cap construction keeps the Faction CT 1.0 Skis chip-free. Arguably the best ski in the world named after the best skier in the world definitely says something, and this ski lives up to all the hype.

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Camber / Rocker320mm rocker in the tip, 3mm camber underfoot, and 310mm in the tail.


Stiff Flex7/10 - Designed to provide bite and stability in steep terrain and variable snow.


Symmetrical ShapeDesigned to handle identically forward and switch.


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


Carbon Reinforcement Underfoot


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.

Multi-Colored Sidewall

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.


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


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


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.
