Never before have I felt so good after riding a new ski for the first time. The Candide 4.0 has truly changed my skiing for the better. Every time I land I feel the new stiffness in the tail place me and my weight gently in the centre of the ski. Stable in all aspects of freeride skiing, the 4.0 has a perfectly designed and balanced concept in mind. Simplicity truly is the way to go. Subtle, and stylish the graphic is clean and is very warm towards the eyes. If the ski is jumping, hitting cliffs, flashing lines, streaking through pillows or tree it just does it, no questions asked, just think and the Faction 4.0 will be the guide.
Faction has done exactly what every company has been attempting to do the past few years. They have made a light weight, solid, big mountain touring ski. The 4.0 crushes every aspect if skiing whether it's jumping, pow skiing, or charging lines, this ski does it all. The Faction 4.0 is the future of backcountry big mountain skiing.
Faction found a way to make a light ski but stiff enough to ski hard on !
The perfect shape and the rocker allows me to ski forward in the deep snow and to stomp cliffs landing forward as well. They are so stable at hight speed and easy to maneuver in the forest.
for big lines in europe to Bc's powder this ski is the bomb!
Light weight and perfect rocker design.
When I ski them I feel like I'm Candide!!!
