The history of the brand began in 2006 in Verbier, Switzerland. Thanks to its work, collaborations and research, Faction has today become an emblematic leader in the freeskiing revolution. With an incredible development process, the brand has been able to gain market share and obtain athletes to find themselves at the feet of the greatest mountaineers, Freeride World Tour champions, Olympic and X Games gold medallists.
The process is simple: the skis are tested on the beautiful Swiss slopes and then adjusted by the Faction team. This ensures performance in all conditions. In fact, they are built for their use and to be durable over time. With Faction, your skis will follow you for years to come!
To be on all fronts and show its performance, Faction has a real community of mountain professionals. To excel in their work, TPC members use and recommend Faction as the brand that offers incredible products for all terrains.
In 2012, Candide Thovex, the greatest freeskier of all time, joined the Faction team for multiple adventures. This athlete, who has been boosting the brand for so many years, has in fact been the winner of numerous world competitions, which has put Faction skis in the spotlight.
So much so that the brand is projecting itself to its side, the teams have decided to create a new model of skis, with its name : the CANDIDE range. These skis, which have been a real success from the moment they came out, are still there and are not about to come out.
The shape of the Candide skis is simple but effective with a beautiful precision. Its generous rocker and camber allow you to have fun in all situations.
