Description: The Faction Candide Youth 2.0 are real skis sized to fit junior rippers who've long since left their parents in the dust. Made in the image of the adult Candide series, with a rocker-flat-rocker profile and full sidewalls, this youth version of the Candide charges as hard as the adult skis and the 98 mm waist provides plenty of float even on over-the-shoulder days.

Product Details

Rocker Type

410 mm Tip Rocker / Flat Camber / 390 mm Tail Rocker

Flex

Medium Stiff Flex  7 (1 = Soft, 10 = Stiff)

Shape

Directional True Twin  This shape is inspired by symmetrical freestyle ski design, but tweaked for a freeride approach. A slightly skinnier tail width than tip width means this ski is faster and performs better on the downhill than a completely symmetrical ski. It features the same true, identical twin tip height as its symmetrical park brother for switch skiing and landings.

Core

Poplar Core  Poplar is a light-colored, medium-weight, durable softwood that flexes and pops nicely as well as having a whole load of vibration absorption capabilities. Used as the only wood in this core, it allows the ski to pop, butter and stomp like a park ski and also have enough torsional stability to grip impressively on the downhill.

Sidewalls

Full Strength Sidewall  This 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.

Anti-Chip Micro Cap  A 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.

Binding Compatibility

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