Faction Candide 1.0 2019
Whether you’re making sparks on urban handrails at midnight or dialling your style on the biggest features at your local park, the CT 1.0 is going to roll with the hits.
WHETHER YOU’RE MAKING SPARKS ON URBAN HANDRAILS AT MIDNIGHT OR DIALLING YOUR STYLE ON THE BIGGEST FEATURES AT YOUR LOCAL PARK, THE CT 1.0 IS GOING TO ROLL WITH THE HITS. A COMBINATION OF A CARBON STOMP PAD, OUR THICKEST XL 2.5MM EDGES AND ANTI-CHIP MICRO-CAP CONSTRUCTION PROVIDE A SOLID LANDING GEAR, BULLET PROOF PROTECTION AND A LIFE EXPECTANCY THAT’S SECOND TO NONE. ON THE RARE MOMENTS THAT YOU’RE NOT SLIDING THAT TRIPLE-KINK OR STOMPING THAT KNUCKLE TRICK, THE POPPY POPLAR/BEECH SANDWICH WOOD CORE COUPLED WITH A LIVELY SYMMETRICAL SIDECUT MAKES THIS SKI A WHOLE LOAD OF FUN TO JIB ALL AROUND THE MOUNTAIN. DESIGNED WITH THE FREESTYLE PIONEER HIMSELF, CANDIDE THOVEX, AND VOTED THE NO.1 PARK SKI BY FREESKIER, NEED WE SAY MORE?
7 fractions of a millimetre might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges on our CT 1.0 stack an extra 35% of height on top of our already super-durable standard 1.8mm edges.
An identical twin tip height, and width in both tip and tail ensures effortless switch skiing for all your freestyle needs.
Create a reasonably light ski that grips great and feels snappy between turns – always maintaining a soft enough flex to pop, slash and butter all over the mountain.
Carbon reinforcement underfoot adds additional strength to a freestyle ski, where it matters most. As well as protecting the wood core against heavy duty impact on rails, this carbon reinforcement underfoot adds stability and vibration absorption under your boots.
With micro-cap, the sandwich construction provides awesome edge hold and torsional stability while the ski’s topsheet wraps around and meets the sidewall, protecting the fragile join that can be prone to chipping.
