Product Info

A "Big Boy" powder and backcountry ski that stays playful with huge amounts of rocker at both ends, the Faction Candide 4.0 Skis have yet to find a big mountain situation they don't thrive in. A meter of fresh, big drops and fall-you-die terrain are all in play. Faction keeps the weight down with a Balsa and Pachaco core and Titanal only under the bindings, making the 4.0 a good choice for a freeride touring setup.

Product Details

Rocker Type

600 mm Tip Rocker / 1 mm Camber / 590 Tail Rocker

Flex

Stiff Flex8 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

Sidecut

Elliptical Radius SidecutMade up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail results in seamless turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths and angles.

Shape

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.

Core

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.

Laminates

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.

Sidewalls

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.
