From powder fields, through trees, to BC booters.

The redesigned Candide 3.0 Ski from Faction is here to take you into uncharted powder fields, hidden tree glades, and backcountry booters. Tip and tail rocker give this ski the ease you love while the minimal camber underfoot reinforces the smoothness with which you can use these to ski powder. An extremely light core means that you can whip these around very quickly for planks of this size, giving you a "best of both worlds" type feel to your ski day. 

  • Tip and tail rocker, minimal camber underfoot
  • Sandwich construction
  • Balsa and flax core
  • 112mm underfoot
  • Traditional sidecut 142/112/132

Unanswered Question

Can anyone give a review of this ski as a daily driver? How is it on firm snow and groomers? In crud? Does it make a decent one ski quiver for the West?

Hi I am 5'10 178 and I wanted to see if I could get away with a 175. Im looking for something that can be a daily driver at AltaBird and still handle a good day in the Vail bowls providing plenty of float. I have a 185 JJ and it feels a little long for most days. I am going back and fourth between the 175 / 185. Please help! Thanks!

I think the 175 would be great for you. You can get away with a longer ski with the Candide 3.0 as it's light due to the balsa/flax core and carbon sandwiching, and because there is so much tip rocker (and a good bit of tail rocker), it skis shorter. I am 6'2" and have the 183, and it's my daily ski, and kills it in pow.

I ride the Faction Soma in a 178 for a park ski and im 6'0 and it rips everything. I'd recommend that size
