The Candide 5.0 brings the original Candide 4.0 back to life, revived and updated. As playful, poppy and easy to pivot as the legendary ski, with an updated core, rocker curves and contruction that polish up the ride and add extra durability.
Faction reinforced the super lightweight Balsa with robust Flax fibres plus Poplar strips crreating a durable wood core that holds an edge like other skis twice its weight.
A considerably skinnier tail width than in the tip provides ultimate downhill performance for attacking the mountain. A twin tip in the tail encourages playfulness and freestyle attitude, meaning you can ride switch without problem.
The ski comes with a flat camber underfoot for manoeuvrability, quick pivots and slashes.
With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile join that can be prone to chipping
This ski does not come with bindings. We recommend a pair of bindings with a brake from 5 up to 10 mm wider than this ski. Please feel free to contact our customer service if you have a question about binding compatibility.
If you buy skis and bindings together we can mount them for you free of charge. For further information check our FAQs.
Please note that adult bindings cannot be combined with kids skis (and vice versa).
