The benchmark of backcountry destroyers is now available for all

The 2019 Candide 5.0 Skis from Faction are the apex of pro-level go-big skis. These backcountry assassins rule the roost on any steep powder day. Let’s put it this way – if Candide Thovex can do his thing on these planks, then anyone can…

A legendary ski, befitting of a legendary skiier

The Candide 5.0 skis are total rippers, just like Thovex. They’re ready for super-speed straight lining with a fairly stiff construction and ultra-wide 122mm underfoot (152mm in the tips) but they’ll have your back on heavy landings too. A clear-cut rocker/flat/rocker profile that pivots perfectly and 25m turn radius means that laying into those long, powerful carves is a veritable dream.

Fully featured for legendary performance

The 2019 Candide 5.0 reimagine the classic Candide 4.0 – the first ski the Faction developed with Candide Thovex. They’ve retained the lightweight, tech-focused design but added a few key tweaks to make these skis extra-special. Now easier to control because of the Balsa, Flax and Poplar Hybrid Core construction.

Strong but smooth

Titanal reinforcements add durability without forfeiting manoeuvrability and Faction’s trademark Anti-Chip Micro-Cap sidewall vastly increases the damage from any non-snow objects you may encounter on your missions.

The best bits…

  • Hybrid Core construction for lightweight handling
  • Pivot-on-a-penny Rocker/Flat/Rocker profile
  • Directional Twin shaping for blasting spins in the backcountry
  • Full Strength Sidewall Construction with 
  • Die-Cut P-Tex 3000
  • Flex rating: 8/10 (Stiff)
  • Weight: 1920g @182cm
  • Turn radius: 25m
