Product details

The Faction Candide 5.0 is Candide Thovex’s go-to ski. A super wide freestyle-oriented powder ski built strong enough to charge but playful enough to get tricky at top speed. Built for the skier who values some stability in a playful powder ski.

Key Features:

  • Full Rocker – A full rocker profile allows the ski to float extremely well in powder and be very nimble. It’s easy to break the tails out into a slash at any time.

  • Paulownia/Poplar core – The combination core of paulownia that adds stiffness and poplar that adds pop and playfulness results in a strong ski that still has the playful characteristics of a freestyle ski.

  • Full Sidewall – A full sidewall ensures that even though this is a powder ski, it’s still capable of holding an edge when need be.

  • 122mm underfoot – 122mm is a super wide ski. It’s going to shine in deep powder but it is not meant for performance on groomers and hardpack.

Playing from the park to the cliffs to the bumps, if you can imagine it these skis can probably do it.

Deep powder days skiing big lines. It also has the versatility to hold an edge at high speed and prevent chatter in the crud and hard pack. Let these dudes loose and hit some cliffs, kickers or just play in the park.
