Overview

Arguably the most versatile of the Candide family, the 3.0 merges freestyle performance with a lightweight construction and all-mountain shape

As comfortable threading lines through the trees as it is going waist deep in slack-country or charging freshly-groomed piste, the 2019 Faction Candide CT 3.0 is your ticket to all-mountain domination. With an adaptable 108mm waist, the 3.0 is perfect for the sort of hard-charging all-mountain freestyle action that King Candide has made his own. Not familiar with the man himself? Go and stick his name into YouTube and you'll see just what this ski is capable of.

Underfoot camber with plenty of tip and tail rocker

With plenty of nose and tail rocker it reduces the chance of catching your edges, giving you the confidence to push your riding, while also delivering loads of lift in powder and helping with your butters and presses. Camber underfoot takes care of edge hold and stability through the turn, inspiring confidence when pushed hard. Slightly stiffer than mid-flex, the 2019 CT 3.0 is a great choice for intermediate and advanced skiers who want a ski which is powerful and obedient but doesn't sacrifice forgiveness on powder landings or flex for powder nose butters.

Lightweight and chatter-resistant core

Built using sandwich construction, a method of layering the core materials, which increases strength and edge-hold, the CT's core is comprised of exceptionally light balsa hardwood, which is laminated together with strips of woven flax to reduce the amount of torsional flex in the ski and increase pop in the nose and tail. A rubber dampening layer bonds the base to the core while simultaneously working to absorb any vibration in high speed and choppy conditions.

Durably reinforced and solidly constructed

Titanal plates underfoot ensure that the binding screws are fully locked into the core, drastically reducing the chances of a pull-out if you land heavy. And that's a good thing, because with a super-fast sintered base, the CT 3.0 is capable of going big! It's all topped off with a matte topsheet, featuring Microcap protection, a chip-resistant construction that joins the sidewall for increased durability. What a weapon! Grab one now while you still can.
