Faction Candide 5.0 LTD Skis 2019

It's back! A revival of the original ski that Faction developed with Candide, the Faction Candide 5.0 LTD Skis boast the same ripping sidecut, super slashable pivot-on-a-dime feel, and gloriously girthy waist width but with a new hybrid core and more durable sidewall construction. The result? A powder ski that'll have you so excited to ski the storm cycles that you might just give up on even trying to maintain a real job... We can't promise that these will make you ski like Mr. Thovex, but we can promise some of the most memorable deep-day turns of your life. With limited edition badging on each of the 200 available pairs, you'd be foolish to sleep on this opportunity to get your paws on a pair!

Product Details

Rocker Type

Rocker / Flat / Rocker420mm rocker in the tips. Flat (zero camber) underfoot for maneuverability, quick pivots and slashes. 400mm rocker in the tails.


Stiff Flex - 8/10Designed to provide bite and stability in steep terrain and variable snow.


Directional TwinA considerably skinnier tail width than in the tip provides ultimate downhill performance for attacking the mountain. A twin tip in the tail encourages playfulness and freestyle attitude, meaning you can ride switch without problem.


Hybrid Balsa-Poplar-Flax CoreBalsa is a sandy-colored softwood with exceptional strength for its light weight. Reinforce the super lightweight Balsa with earthy-colored, robust Flax fibre plus Poplar strips and you have a durable wood core that holds an edge like skis twice the weight. During the drying process, cells of water in the Balsa wood are driven off, leaving behind a strong core with no excess weight.


Phenol Binding PlatePhenol reinforcement plate laid on top of the hybrid balsa/flax core ensures binding screws hold like nothing else and add durability to these super lightweight cores.


Full Strength Sidewalls

Anti-Chip Micro-CapMicro-cap construction is a hybrid of two construction techniques: a premium, sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. 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 joint that can be prone to chipping.


Die-Cut P-Tex 3000


Anti-Scratch Topsheet

Additional Features

Limited Edition PlateEvery pair is unique, equipped with a metal plate underfoot indicating it's number out of 200.

Binding Compatibility

We recommend a brake width equal to or at most 15 mm wider than the ski waist width.

Salomon Warden MNC 13 Ski Bindings 2021

The Salomon Warden MNC 13 Ski Bindings have seen a dramatic uptick in popularity as more and more of the best skiers in the world gravitate away from established runs at the ski area and head into sidecountry and backcountry zones, often with touring boots on their feet. The MNC capability of the Warden 13 makes it ideal for this sort of use (as they can be re-adjusted at the toe to accommodate an ISO 5355 alpine sole). What's more, the Warden MNC retains the proven, easy and reassuring step-in consistency and durability that has made it a winner in the first place. Don't let a new do-it-all, touring-capable alpine boot restrict your ability to ski your favorite in-bounds rigs, mount 'em up with the Salomon Warden MNC Ski Bindings and keep the party rockin'!
