    The VIP of the Candide series.

    From buttering lips to dropping cliffs, the Faction Skis Candide 3.0 Ski is the VIP of its series. The tip and tail rocker make turning a breeze and help you ride through less-than-perfect snow conditions, and low camber underfoot gives you stability and edge hold in more packed conditions.

    To keep things light and lively, Faction built the Candide 3.0 with a balsa wood core that's reinforced with flax fibers for extra strength and pop. Biaxial and triaxial fiberglass laminates give the ski tons of edge hold and torsional stability, while an updated micro-cap construction provides increased durability. The Candide features an updated titanal binding plate to ensure you won't pull out a heelpiece at an inopportune time, and it's finished with a sintered P-Tex 4000 base, making it burly enough to make the entire mountain your playground.

    The ONE Ski Quiver

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is an impressive all round ski for people who live around deep winters. Plenty of float and can still handle groomers. Lets be honest, they were designed by Candide.

    I love these skis!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love these skis! They have great float in powder and a nice combination of flex with the underfoot camber really gives the ski some great pop. Also when ripping carves down some groomers these things can get edge to edge surprisingly fast for a 108 waist ski.

    If I was to pick one ski to use every day this would be the one for sure. Master of all trades, jack of none.

    Would these be good for alpine touring? Just starting out - not expecting trips over a couple of hours. looking for a ski i can ride on pow days and enjoy but still not struggle with the weight of them on the way up

    Hi Andrew, You should be good to tour on these bad boys, they are a great pair of boards. Really fun and surfy, playful but can charge when you lay them on edge. There are definitely skis that are lighter out there, touring specific skis, that would be easier on the way up, but these are fairly lightweight and should be a lot of fun on the way down. If you have any other questions, please feel free to reach out to me directly and I'll take care of you. - Matthew Pizza - Expert Gearhead
