Effortless float and catch-free butterability in a lightweight freeride charger

If your days are spent in pursuit of your next powder fix and your only time on piste is getting back to the lifts or resort then the 2018 Faction Candide CT 4.0 was made for you. The hugely successful pro-model of La Clusaz internet-sensation and all-around ski wizard Candide Thovex uses the narrower 3.0 as its foundation but adds more powder-friendly width and design into the mix. The result is a ski which charges and slashes powder with unbelievable float but remains fun and playful, meaning you’re free to throw a powder butter or huck a cliff if the fancy takes you without being weighed down.

Go-anywhere hybrid profile and a super-versatile sidecut

The rocker in nose and tail combines with that chunky 118m waist to provide lift and improve butterability in pow while also reducing the chance of catching your edges. Camber underfoot delivers great edge hold and stability through the turn, along with a bit of shock absorption for those big hits.  Sitting between stiff and mid-flex, the 4.0 is a great choice for intermediate and advanced skiers who want a ski which is powerful and obedient but retains a little bit of forgiving flex should you need it. A Multi-Dimension Sidecut with shorter radius underfoot and longer radii blended out to the tip and tail lets you tailor the turn radius to your environment – short for tight couloirs, long for straight-line charging.

Light on your feet for a nimble but solid-feeling ride

Built using sandwich construction, the core is light balsa laminated together with strips of woven flax to improve torsional stiffness and increase pop in the nose and tail. A rubber dampening layer helps to soak up unwanted vibrations in choppy conditions and Titanal plates underfoot ensure that the binding screws are fully locked into the core. The super-fast die-cut base utilises sintered 4000 P-Tex, a highly porous material with high top speed and great durability, while the matte topsheet with Microcap protection resists chipping.

If it’s good enough for Candide, it’s good enough for anyone. Highly recommended.

Size Guide

The size chart below provides a basic guide to finding the right ski length based on your height and ability but there are several other factors you should consider before choosing your new skis!

The two most relevant considerations when interpreting the chart below are your weight and the type of skiing you intend to do. 

Weight: If you’re a heavier built that the average person of your height then we suggest choosing a longer ski as a heavier skier requires more edge to grip the snow and more base area for floatation in powder and cruddy snow.  Conversely, if you’re a slimmer build you may want to consider going for a shorter ski as you’ll need less edge / ski to support your weight than someone of an ‘average’ build.

Skier Type: Secondly, if you want a ski that’s going to inspire confidence when you’re skiing fast and you like to ski faster than most, then a longer ski is going to be preferable.   The additional edge and float provided by a longer ski will give you a more stable ride.  If, however, you’re more freestyle focussed and you want a ski that’s going to be more nimble and easier to manoeuvre at low speeds then a slightly shorter ski will work better for you as there will be less ski to manage.

If you have any queries at all on finding the right ski or ski size for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us for further advice.
