Faction CT 3.0 Candide Thovex Signature 18/19

Spend your mornings laying down first tracks then your afternoons airing natural hits and crushing steep freeride lines?
The CT 3.0 has a versatile 108mm waist that floats with ease in the deep snow but is also manageable and responsive in choppy and harder conditions.
Designed with Candide, the freestyle-inspired shape with a tapered sidecut makes the ski easy to press and wash out when you want to jib, but also holds a strong edge when you ask more from it at high speeds.
The updated Hybrid Core keeps the weight down but adds extra durability and life while the Titanal plate underfoot makes sure you can rely on your bindings to hold when you demand the most of them. This is the perfect one ski quiver for the rider who is always on the lookout for fresh goods and needs a lightweight, versatile ski to rip up the whole mountain.

In our (Sport65) point of view the Candide 3.0 does it all! The lightweight super strong ski for all kind of terrain. It cruises easy trough the trees, steep faces and ridges as well as wide open faces with high speed. Bundled up with a low tech touring binding the 3.0 is a great setup for freetouring!
By the way...we all know the 3.0 is not a on piste ski, but it works great on the groomers as well!

"Surprisingly this ski comes in at a relatively light weight, allowing it to serve as a touring ski option as well as the in bounds all-mountain charger that I would use it for. My knees were thankful for the low weight of these skis, even though they are on the wider end of the spectrum. For a playful ski that can do just about anything, the Faction Candide 3.0 will serve you well."
(Skiers Choice, Test US Powder Magazine)


logo_powdermag2.gif"Candide’s all-mountain tool of destruction returns with significant updates, like the addition of slight camber underfoot to add stability and power on straight lines and tighter, more technical zones. Bolstered by Faction’s well-received lightweight balsa/flax core, the 3.0’s newly increased sidecut of 22 meters is smooth while remaining maneuverable due to the significant tip-and-tail rocker. The new shape makes the 3.0 ideal for top-to-bottom laps and booter sessions. My first lap took me by surprise; these bad boys were mounted closer to center than I’m used to, and definitely benefit from a more centered stance in order to utilize the ski’s full length. But I soon settled into several insanely fun laps and a miserable attempt at Candide’s "One Of Those Days." Powder Magazine Best Gear 15/16!

"Among the terrain park crowd, the Candide Thovex Signature Series is associated with the center-mounted, symmetrical CT 1.0 and 2.0 skis. But for the directional skier, Faction's CT 3.0 is the ticket. The secret to CT 3.0's remarkable stability at speed, particularly for a ski so light, is a balsa/flax core. A pioneer in the use of flax as a dampening agent for skis, Faction understood that ounce-for-ounce, it’s a better vibration absorber than Titanal. The CT 3.0 adds a short section of metal underfoot, but it’s more for binding retention than added power. Looked at in profile, the CT 3.0 baseline, while rockered and twin-tipped, stays fairly close to the snow. It doesn’t take a lot of pressure to get a solid edge in the snow, so the CT 3.0 can be a dedicated off-piste ski for any lighter weight skier, male or female (note the 204-cm size, a ginormous footprint). Bob Gleason targeted the Faction CT 3.0 “for a skilled skier, a great charger. Strong carve with a crisp turn release, good hold and smooth at speed."  (On the Snow

freeskier_logo.jpg"Faction and the legendary Candide Thovex gave the popular Faction Candide 3.0 Skis a makeover this year, in the form of a slimmer waist width—down to 108 from 112—a tighter turn radius and a smoother flex pattern. A substantial amount of tip rocker and a bit in the tail keeps the ski playful for nose butters and big tricks, while a touch of camber underfoot ensures stability on the hardpack. “Solid construction, easy to pivot and bounce around on,” proclaimed one tester, while others celebrated its “solid construction” and “super stable and poppy” nature. These planks won’t make you ski like Candide, but they will certainly elevate your game." (Test Freeskier 15/16)
