Faction Candide 3.0 Skis
The Faction Candide 3.0 skis are extremely versatile for its size. With slight camber underfoot and tip and tail rocker, the Candide 3.0 can pivot with ease, slash turns, and carve groomers.
The Balsa/Flax core makes the ski ultralight and the 108mm waist makes it great across a variety of conditions, from powder fields through trees to BC booters. This unique core uses strips of Balsa vertically laminated together with flax fibers to create an incredibly light yet torsionally stiff ski. The result is a ski that is 20% lighter.

Sidecut: 20m @ 182cm

Full sandwich construction with micro cap protection
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 join that can be prone to chipping.
Superlite hybrid balsa/flax core
We reinforce the super lightweight Balsa with robust Flax fibres plus Poplar strips creating a durable wood core that holds an edge like other skis twice its weight.
A considerably skinnier tail width than in the tip provides ultimate downhill performance for attacking the mountain. A twin tip in the tail encourages playfulness and freestyle attitude, meaning you can ride switch without problem.
