The Faction Candide 4.0 skis will have you floating through pow and stomping pillow lines just like your idol. The ultra lightweight core makes the 4.0 extremely light, no matter how big or wide the ski is. But don't be fooled by the width, the Candide 4.0 has enough shape to carve turns and hold an edge at speed.
With SLIGHT CAMBER UNDERFOOT, FULL STRENGTH SIDEWALL CONSTRUCTION AND THE UPDATED, LIGHTWEIGHT HYBRID CORE MEAN THAT THE CT 4.0 IS MORE VERSATILE THAN EVER AND FEELS SUPER RESPONSIVE IN THE CRUD AND HARDER CONDITIONS.
The multi-radius sidecut takes the dual-radius sidecut concept a step further. Instead of going directly from sidecut to taper, the ski has multiple sidecuts to straighten it out before the taper. This maneuverable shape consists of a shorter radius underfoot, keeping the ski nimble on those steep and narrow entries, and longer radii blended out to the tip and tail that ensure a stable and surfy feel when you’re flying out the bottom. This creates a fluid ride with smooth transitions from carve to slide.

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
Super lightweight Balsa with robust Flax fibres plus Poplar strips crreating 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.
