Alpine Ski Faction Candide 2.0

Ski sold without binding.

The Faction Candide 2.0 went through a slight upgrade this summer to return with more horsepower under the belt. This freestyle backcountry weapon delivers tons of versatility and appears to be the perfect compromise between a park ski and a freeride ski. Watch Adam Delorme and Daniel Hanka ride with it, you will know what we mean. Construction-wise, the Candide 2.0 comes with a twin tip shape and a 102mm platform. It’s super poppy thanks to its light woodcore and remains as powerful as it used to be with its carbon reinforcements. The tip and tail rockers maximise the agility of the ski on deep powder and make it more playful. 

What can the Faction Candide 2.0 ski do? 

If Faction ranks the ski in the all-mountain category, we can tell you the Candide 2.0 has an obvious bias towards freestyle and could easily be sold as a FS backcountry ski. Its 102mm waist and the two rockers per ski ensure the perfect floatation no matter how deep the powder. It is the ideal partner for sending tricks off natural booters or homemade kickers. Landings are smooth as silk thanks to the carbon featured and it also helps to keep reactivity at its best. If you like dancing through the trees and slaloming between various obstacles, the ski will make you happy. And if you want more, take it on a few park laps and learn new tricks with the beast until you reach Candide’s level... 

Who is the Faction Candide 2.0 designed for? 

We recommend it to advanced riders who want a one-ski-quiver for shredding the park and the backcountry with the same ski. Just keep in mind that it is powerful and it requires strong legs to be managed.

Structure - Construction

  • Poplar & Ash Core  :

    A poplar core with ash "stringers" is used for their complimentary characteristics of dampness and responsiveness. Used on the bulk of the skis, this together with fiberglass above and below the core provide a smooth feel and control in all snow conditions.

  • Carbon reinforcement  :

    A carbon layer makes the core more durable and best suited for a rail use. 

  • Sandwich Construction  :

    Sandwich construction

Camber type

  • Classic camber  :

    When the ski sits flat on the ground, the tip and the tail are in contact with it while the midsection rises above. It is this section that maximises the energy transmission towards the edge, ideal for piste skiing. It also provides a rebound which enhances energy return and pop.


  • 10/200mm Tip Rocker  :

    Skis featuring a rockered tip and a traditional or flat camber float better on soft snow and deliver goof performance on groomers.

    10mm rise on a 200mm length. 

  • 5/150 Tail Rocker  :

    5mm Rocker though 150mm in the tail

  • 2mm Camber  :

    Easy turn initiation on the slope, added reactivity off piste

Rocker type

  • Tip and tail rocker  :

    Full length rocker perfect for surfing powder. It floats easily and ensures smooth and effortless turns. Landings are easier too.


  • Micro-Cap Protection  :

    In continuing their efforts to improve chip-resistance in their skis, Faction has incorporated a ‘micro’ cap where the topsheet meets the sidewall on their sandwich construction skis. Available on most models.

  • 2.5mm Edges  :

    More durable

  • Ptex-4000 die-cut bases  :

    Very High density base for an excellent glide performance, wax retention, and resistance to abrasion.

  • Custom Matte Topsheet
