New to 2020, the Faction Candide 2.0 X Women’s freeride skiboasts the same construction, shape and tech as the men’s counterpart but with female specific lengths and graphics. A true twin tip, with symmetrical side cut and smooth transition between rocker and camber gives the ski its playful feel.The brainchild of Candide Thovex himself, arguably the best skier on the planet right now. A soft flex complimented by carbon underfoot makes for a seamless park to all-mountain transition. A truly versatile ski, at 102mm underfoot you have the torsional stiffness you need at speed, float in soft snow and easy turn initiation. Coupling this with a truly symmetrical side cut makes for a true twin for those who like to ski backwards as much as forwards.Gradual tip and tail rocker and camber underfoot make for an adaptable and versatile ski. Poplar Beechwood core makes it light and sandwich sidewall construction is lightweight yet strong, with a design that supplies plenty of edging power. This ski is awesome for an intermediate to advanced skier who wants to ski the whole mountain daily. We recommend pairing this ski with any binding from the marker royal family range, specifically the Marker Squire 11 ID or Marker Griffon 13 ID bindings depending on skier weight and ability.
Faction was created from the minds of a varied group of skiers and snowboarders who simply needed more from their gear. They knew that what they made needed to be affordable, long lasting and above all, fun. Faction’s home is in Switzerland, and twelve years on their operation is largely the same – but slightly more sophisticated.
Faction commits itself to making products that stand out from the crowd, reflecting the fun and freedom of snow sports. They love to incorporate new and innovative technologies into their products, including the use of recycled materials and hand-crafted manufacturing. These industry driving aspects are used to create rebellious, unique designs that you’ll want to use all winter long!
Faction skis are created by independents, for independents. Be inspired by The Faction Collective’s range of skis, accessories and clothing.
