Product Info

Being little doesn't mean you don't throw down, and Faction's known this for a long time (witness the pint-sized members of their Collective). Thus their proclivity for making real kids' skis that mimic the construction of their adult skis, although with an age-appropriate flex and weight. The Faction CT 1.0 JR Skis are a case in point, built up around a real poplar-beech core with Full Strength Sidewalls and the full Candide geometric treatment, just in a smaller size range. If your kid is a Candide fan, now's the time to start on the path and this is the ski.

Product Details

Rocker Type

220mm Tip Rocker / 2mm Camber / 200mm Tail Rocker

Flex

Candide Thovex Signature FlexThe living legend is never not tinkering, tweaking, learning, improving. Thovex is adamant that heavy rocker is best complemented by solid, stiffer tips and tails — to help settle the skis and power through variable snow. Additionally, the stiff tips absorb more vibration when skiers touch down after going airborne. Just add a touch more flex under foot and it allows the skis to load up and POP on request. Welcome to the Candide Thovex Signature Flex.

Flex Rating6 (1 Soft - 10 Stiff)

Sidecut

Elliptical SidecutMade up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail results in seamless turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turn lengths and angles.

Shape

Candide Thovex Signature Shape Moderately tapered tips and tails are complemented by an Elliptical Sidecut for efficient, precise handling and carving. A combination of generous rocker and modest camber results in a wonderfully playful character, injecting new energy into an otherwise routine day on the mountain. For the increasingly popular category of high-performance all-mountain skis with freestyle flair, a new benchmark has been set.

Directional TwinA considerably skinnier tail width than 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.

Core

Poplar / Beech CorePoplar is a light-colored, durable softwood that flexes and pops nicely as well as having great vibration absorption capabilities. The darker hardwood, beech, adds stiffness and rebound. The results are a reasonably light ski that grips and is snappy between turns - always maintaining a soft enough flex to butter all over the mountain.

Sidewalls

Anti-Chip Micro CapA hybrid of 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.

Full Strength SidewallThis construction places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the wood core, edges and topsheet from impacts and outside damage.

Edges

XL 2.2mm EdgesExtra edge thickness gives the skier a pair of skis that absorb shock and impact much better than skis with standard edges. The result is a ski with a much higher life expectancy.

Additional Features

Scratch Resistant Topsheet

Binding Compatibility

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