The collaboration between Faction and Candide Thovex has been around for a few seasons, designed to bring a range of skis to people who demand the very best from their equipment. The CT range of skis are responsive, demanding and high performing across a range of terrain. These skis are hardcore enough for Candide Thovex himself, so you know they will be up for the challenge. The CT range uses the most reliable materials combined with modern shapes and camber profiles to suit all Freeski disciplines. The CT 2.0 has been updated this year by the Faction engineers in collaboration with Candide, this new version of the CT 2.0 is designed to excel across any terrain and in all snow conditions, so you only need one pair of skis on your next mountain adventure. Equipped with the Candide Thorvex Signature Shape, Flex and Stance this ski butters over the rollers, whips between turns and pops off the boosters. With a 102mm waist width these skis are highly versatile, so you can enjoy mother natures playground

CT Signature Shape: The CT signature shape has been refined overtime and is now an award-winning silhouette which is used across the whole CT line. The shape is defined by a tapered tip and tail combined with an elliptical radius sidecut. As a result, this shape allows precise handling and great carving
The CT shape uses a generous amount of rocker with camber to suit all mountain skiing. Camber provides power, pop and quick edge to edge transitions whilst rocker makes it easier to initiate turns and lift the tips out of deep snow

Twin Tips: These tips are perfect for freestyle as you can ride and land switch easily without getting hooked up in the snow. Twin tips give you full creative freedom in and out of the park

CT Signature flex, 8/10 flex: Candide Thovex believes that rocker is complimented by stiffer tips and tails, helping to settle the ski and increase power. Less flex absorbs vibrations on the snow and during landings. Extra flex in the centre of the ski under the bindings helps you load up power and pop

Lightweight Poplar Core: Poplar is a mid-weight softwood that’s provides a balance of durability and flex. Poplar naturally absorbs vibrations for a smooth and comfortable feeling. As the core is only made with one species of wood it provides consistent flex and response for a predictable ski

Full Carbon Weave This carbon weave is made with 8 to 12 stands which are woven into fibreglass and then placed along either side of the wood core. The carbon weave increases the stability of the ski, response and stiffness of the ski without impacting the weight

CFK Stomp Pad The binding points are reinforced with a titanal and rubber stop pad, increasing the durability of the ski in the highest impact zone. This feature is extremely useful during freestyle sessions when the ski is goes through more impact. The stomp pad protects the woodcore during impact on snow and features whilst dampening out vibrations for a smoother ride

Full Strength Sidewall: Strips of protection material create the sidewall with runs along the side of the core, wedged between the topsheet and the edge. Full Strength sidewalls provides great edge hold and increase stability during your turns, in addition the sidewall protects the core, topsheet and edges during impact

Anti-Chip Micro-cap This is a hybrid construction made with a mix of classic sidewall and lightweight Capwall construction which have been sandwiched together, providing torsional stability and edge hold. The topsheet wraps around the ski to meet the sidewall, increasing the durability of the ski and preventing the joint being chipped during impact

Matte High Resistance Topsheet: Faction source the topsheet from a factory near their factory in order to make the supply chain more eco-friendly. Using only the highest quality materials these topsheet are tough, Faction have even tested them vigorously to ensure they are up for the task

CT Mounting Point Mount your skis just like Candide Thovex, this mounting point is at the narrowest spot on the ski which is the most natural place to initiate pivoting for funky freestyle ski experience. This mounting spot also allow you to pop of the tip and tail of your ski and skill carve down the hardpack

XL 2.5mm Edges: 2.5mm might not sound like much but in the skiing world is huge. This edge is 35% higher than a standard edge, this extra steel means the ski can handle harder and more frequent impacts

Elliptical Sidecut: This sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot that helps you pivot faster and easier whilst a shorter radius in the tip and tail makes it easier to initiate turns. The Elliptical sidecut allows the ski to make a wide variety of turns lengths and angles
