Faction Candide 1.0 Skis -

With multiple X-Games gold medals and a Freeride World Tour Championship beneath his belt, pro-skier Candide Thovex knows what he wants in a ski so it's no surprise that he helped develop the Faction Candide 1.0 Ski. Specifically designed for park and pipe and for whipping around on groomers and on-piste terrain, the 1.0 features an 82-millimeter waist and 5 millimeters of traditional camber underfoot. As a result, this ski loves to rally the park and pipe, hit rails, and spin with the same ease of shorter skis.
Designed with a SuperLite wood core, the 1.0 uses strips of Balsa vertically laminated together with flax fibers. This creates an incredibly light yet torsionally stiff core that provides all the feel of a full wood core. Skis made using this technology are around 20% lighter than their Faction poplar and ash-cored equivalents. All wood used in making of the 1.0 are also farmed from FSC-certified forests.
Faction utilizes a full sandwich construction in the 1.0 for a more traditional feel and to provide smooth flex properties. Two layers of fiberglass above and below the core, vibration-dampening materials, edges, ABS plastic sidewalls, and topsheets complete the ingredients. Its die-cut Ptex 4000 bases also ensures durability, longevity, and speed.

Now in its second year, the Faction x Candide Thovex collaboration continues to push boundaries with its innovative use of new materials, technology and design: "When I'm skiing park or rallying around on-piste, this is my ski of choice. The Balsa / Flax core makes the ski lightweight and with that comes more versatility. You can ski on loner skis for stability bit hit rails and spin with the same ease of short skis." - Candide Thovex. If you're looking for everyday, on-piste/park-and-pipe twigs, look no further than the Faction Candide 1.0 Skis. With a balsa/flax core and medium turning radius, these lightweight skis are a great option for those looking for a spin friendly on-piste ski.
