Alpine Ski Faction Candide 1.0

The Candide 1.0 returns for another season. It remains an excellent freestyle twin-tipped ski and still carries Candide Thovex’ signature. If the jibber Tim McChesney has picked it as his new best partner it’s not because the ski is pretty. Faction gave it an explosive poplar and beech woodcore bringing pop and reactivity to their best. The ski was also reinforced with titanal reinforcements and thicker edges making it totally bombproof and shred-ready. 

What can the Faction Candide 1.0 ski do? 

This aggressive freestyle ski is a slaying machine that’s going to set the streets on fire and turn the park into ashes. With the Candide 1.0 on your feet, you are ready to rip and destroy any feature and obstacle that stands on your way. The ski climbs walls and grinds concrete ledges for breakfast. Its reinforced construction and poppy woodcore allows to go huge off kickers and send massive tricks and spins. The 90mm waist keeps the ski ultra versatile. It delivers fast edge to edge transitions for a smooth carving on groomers and provides agility and playfulness on powder. If you want to play in the backcountry and stomp natural booters, you can. The traditional camber keeps the ski lively and responsive while the tip and tail rockers enhance pivot, floatation and presses. It is the ultimate shred stick. 

Who is the Faction Candide 1.0 ski designed for? 

This powerful blade is suited for experienced freestylers looking for a true twin tipped ski that’s got tons of pop and that feels light under the feet. Its beefy construction makes it a great gun for urban assaults or big airs but make sure your level is high enough!

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.

Technology

  • 10/150mm Tip Rocker  :

    The Rocker, or reverse camber, enhances powder floatation thanks to a bigger surface of contact with the snow. By combining different degrees of rocker with a flat or normal camber, powder performance is improved while piste performance isn't affected.

    10mm rocker rising on 150mm

  • 5/100mm tail rocker  :

    The Rocker, or reverse camber, enhances powder floatation thanks to a bigger surface of contact with the snow. By combining different degrees of rocker with a flat or normal camber, powder performance is improved while piste performance isn't affected.

    5mm rocker rising on 100mm

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.

Various

  • 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
  • Twin-Tip  :

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