The CT 5.0 brings the original Candide 4.0 back to life, revived and updated. As playful, poppy and easy to pivot as the first legendary ski we developed with Candide, with an updated core, rocker curves and construction to polish up the ride and add extra durability.
Faction started out as a fun project for a group of shred happy ski bums in Verbier one winter. The group wanted to create skis that were affordable, could last 100+ days, survive without servicing and could be stowed away over summer and shine just as brightly once winter rolled around. Doing just that, they have seen great success over the last 12 years. They are united in their love for the mountains and the tools that allow them, us and you to escape there.
