Product Info

A true standout in the mid-fat freeride class, the Faction Candide 3.0 Skis are adaptable and capable of taking on the entire mountain with grace and ease. A versatile skier who takes on steeps, trees and powder as they come up will find the 108 mm waist the ideal "quiver of one' choice. With a moderately stiff and lively balsa flax core, the Candide 3.0 manages to float through freshies and maintain a super minimal swing weight while still railing the hardpack. Titanial reinforcement underfoot provides dampening, as well as a stronger mounting platform for the binding of your choice. The Faction Candide 3.0 Skis are quite possibly the most versatile, fun-to-ride freeride skis on the market, and while they probably won't make you ski like Candide they certainly won't hurt your chances. Mount 'em up, click in, and go have 'one of those days'!

Laminates

Titanal Reinforcement UnderfootTitanal plates secure the binding screws. The one peice design fits most touring bindings with center screws.

Sidewalls

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.

Multi-Colored Sidewall

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.

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.
