Product Info

When conditions don't really warrant a full-on powder ski and you don't really want a "hard pack" ski, but you know you want to rip hard regardless, take the playful Faction Candide 3.0 Skis and you'll never be far off the mark. This is Candide's choice for those "in between" days, and recommendations don't come any higher. Nimble and surfy when it's time to butter, but all business when you have your foot on the gas, the Candide 3.0 is in a freeride category all its own.

Product Details

Rocker Type

330 mm Tip Rocker / 2 mm Camber / 320 mm Tail Rocker


Medium Stiff Flex7 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)


Directional True TwinThis shape is inspired by symmetrical freestyle ski design, but tweaked for a freeride approach. A slightly skinnier tail width than tip width means this ski is faster and performs better on the downhill than a completely symmetrical ski. It features the same true, identical twin tip height as its symmetrical park brother for switch skiing and landings.


Lightweight Balsa/Pachaco CoreBalsa is a softwood with exceptional strength for its weight. Reinforce that with the lesser-known, unique Pachaco hardwood, as well as a small amount of Poplar, and you are left with a rare combination that ensures a lightweight yet solid ski setup that performs in all conditions.


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 SidewallThis construction places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the wood core, edges and topsheet from impacts and outside damage.

Anti-Chip Micro CapA hybrid of a premium sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski's topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile joint that can be prone to chipping.

Binding Compatibility

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