Quick Overview

The Faction Candide 5.0 has a massive 122mm waist combined with tip and tail rockers. The flex is on the stiffer side and the 25m long radius grips hard. A true powder ski that likes to go fast in all conditions. The Hybrid Core keeps the weight down and the Micro-Cap sidewall adds durability. If you are looking for a Freeride machine with Freestyle capabilities than this is your ski.

Details

Directional Twin
The Faction Candide 5.0 is a directional freestyle ski with freeride capabilities. Double rockered with zero camber and a stiffer flex. This ski likes to go forward fast but can spin, slash and carve the entire mountain.

Anti-chip Micro-cap
Micro-cap construction on the topsheet increases the durability. No more topsheet chipping!

Phenol plate
A reinforcement plate is placed on top of the lightweight Balsa/Flax hybrid core for better binding screw hold.

Anti-scratch (textured) topsheet

The textured topsheet does not scratch like a smooth shiny topsheet. It sheds off snow very easily aswell. 

Die-cut ptex 3000
Very fast and durable base.

Sizing
The Candide 5.0 is only available in one size: 183cm. This ski fits skiërs between 170 and 190 centimeters depending on their weight, style and experience. 

Camber
These skis have zero camber making them easy to turn and slash. They do grip hard when put on edge though!

Radius
The 25 meter radius is on the longer side but it gives the ski great stability when on speed and in longer turns. Because of the double rockers you can still make shorter turns with a little more effort.

Weight
A set weighs 1920 grams and that is impressive for such wide skis. Thanks to the hybrid Balsa/Flax core these skis have great swing weight despit their width.

Core
The core is a mix of Balsa and Flax wood with fiberglass laminates and a Phenol binding plate keeping the weight down. The flex is on the stiffer side and matches the need for speed of Candide.
