2019 Faction Candide CT 5.0 183 withMarker Griffon 13ID Bindings & Phantom base
2019 Faction Candide CT 5.0 183 w/ Marker Griffon 13 ID and Phantom base. Treated with DPS Phantom base treatment. Absolutely amazing for fat skis. Mounted to 27.5 boot, 317mm BSL. Only mounted once, at All Mountain recommended mount point. They were on midwest snow for about 1 hour, but they are perfect. I live in the midwest and have two other pairs of fat skis. With Canadian trips cancelled this year, these just didn't make it out at all. 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.
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.
Short background info about the man himself: Candide Thovex is a professional skier and he has won multiple X-Games Big Air, Halfpipe and Slopestyle medals. After his freestyle career he started focusing on the backcountry.He successfully cleared the legendary Chad's Gap on his first attempt in 1999. Later he entered the Freeride World Tour and won the overall event in his first year on the tour. Candide is praised for his style and speed in the backcountry. His films like Candide Kamera and Few Words show his full potential where he brings his freestyle skills to the backcountry. The last couple of years his YouTube videos like "One of Those Days" have crushed the internet hitting tens of millions of views. Candide is a legendary skier and he teamed up with Faction to build a series of freestyle and freeride skis on which you can show your full potential! Perfect for 1,000 meter heli drops in a meter of fresh or shredding the pavement of the Great Wall, the Faction. Candide 5.0 Skis are not only Candide's ski of choice in the big mountains but a ski you'll have the time of your life on, snow or no snow.
A heavily rockered, flat cambered profile keeps this 122 mm-waisted monster not only manageable but super surfy. Keeps the weight down by using a core of Balsa and Pachaco woods with a Phenol plate underfoot and nometal.
