Candide Thovex Signature Series 2018

Présentation de la gamme Candide 2018

Alpine Ski Faction Candide 2.0

Ski sold without binding.

The Candide 2.0 is Faction’s flagship, a ski that has become a legend over the years. Jointly designed with the notorious pro rider Candide Thovex, the 2.0 is the flexiest ski in the Candide series. Don’t get us wrong though, we are not saying the ski is soft, its carbon-reinforced construction and traditional underfoot camber makes it lively and stable. Feels great on landings.  

What can the Faction Candide 2.0 ski do? 

The Candide 2.0 is going to propel you into the world of freestyle/backcountry. With these skis on your feet, you’re ready to shoot extreme videos and be the next big thing in the skiing industry. The 102mm platform and the rockers deliver ultimate powder fun while the twin profile offers the freestyle performance you were dreamin’ of. Shape your own kicker or jump off a natural booter and feel the power of the ski. Sneak through the trees, go venture beyond the marked runs, explore the unknown part of the mountain, you won’t regret it. And if you really must take the skis on groomed snow, fine. They’ll back you up with enough edge control to make your way down to the resort. But…yeah…obviously, you’re not buying this ski to carve on groomers are you? 

Who is the Faction Candide 2.0 ski designed for? 

Like all Candide skis, the 2.0 is not for beginners. It is responsive, powerful and demanding, if you are not sure about your skills, better buy something easier to use. This one is for reckless freestylers who warm up with a double cork and who’d like to own the best backcountry weapon from Faction.

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. 

Rocker - Camber

  • 2mm Camber  :

    Easy turn initiation on the slope, added reactivity off piste


  • Medium Flex  :

    The ski flex is carefully chosen after hour-long tests in every possible conditions. Thanks to the program Rider-Centric, the flex used is set according to the sidecut radius and the ski size in order to provide the best possible performance.

  • Twin-Tip  :

    A symmetrical shape for a 100% freestyle ride, as efficient in switch as in regular stance.
