Its been on the cards for a while that Candide Thovex was going to join Faction Skis and finally its been officially announced.
Faction and Candide are hooking up to lauch a collaboration FA|CT, this has enabled them to develop 3 new progeressive products. The freeride fat twin, park/pipe twin and the kidsall mountain twin.
Here is a short teaser from Faction filmed in Marrecotte, Switzerland at the start of the month, i’m sure over the coming months we will hear alot about this new colab.
Lets the film sooth your eyes.
Candide 3.0 – Freeride Twin
Tip/Waist/Tail: 142/112/132mm, lengths: 167/175/183/191cm
A double Editor’s Choice award-winning freeride twin just got supercharged.
We took our 3.zero, already one of the best high-performance freeride skis on the market, and together with Candide refined the flex pattern for better control, feedback and stability. The D120 core and flax fibres result in a ski that is 900 grams per pair lighter than the standard model.
Candide 1.0 – Park and Pipe
Tip/Waist/Tail: 114/82/110mm, lengths: 168/173/178/181cm
A perfectly balanced, fully-centered sidecut park and pipe ski for those who want ultimate control and responsiveness in a phenomenally lightweight, durable package. Starting with the Kennedy platform, Candide replaced the core and re-profiled the flex for optimum feel over the entire terrain park. Destined to be a classic.
Candide 0.5 – Kids Ski
Tip/Waist/Tail: 113/79/105mm, lengths: 125/135/145cm
Finally, a high performance junior freestyle ski for aspiring heroes.
Using the same bomber construction as Faction’s adult skis, the FA|CT 1.0 combines sandwich construction with a generous 79mm waist width. Deep sidecut and a flex that will help younger skiers develop over the entire mountain, whilst rewarding those who are already advancing.
