Introducing the limited edition CT5.0 – the exclusive and illusive benchmark of backcountry destroyers.

The CT 5.0  LTD Skis from Faction are the pinnacle of pro-model big-hit sticks. These hand-numbered, limited edition backcountry killers bring come serious power on powder day. Let’s put it this way – if Candide Thovex can do his thing on these planks, then anyone can…

Fully featured for legendary performance

The CT 5.0 revive the classic Candide 4.0 – the first ski the Faction developed with Candide Thovex. They’ve kept the lightweight, performance-focused design but a few select upgrades to make the ride extra-special. It’s easier to control on snow and in the air thanks to the new Balsa, Flax and Poplar Hybrid Core construction.

An all-round hard charger for sending it deep

The CT 5.0 LTD is a total ripper, just like Thovex. It’s geared up for super-speed straight-lining with a somewhat stiff layup and 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 somewhat of a dream.

Strong but smooth

Titanal reinforcements add a huge amount of durability under binding points without sacrificing manoeuvrability and the Anti-Chip Micro-Cap sidewall vastly increases the damage from any non-snow objects you may encounter on your missions.
