Product details: Faction CT 3.0 Candide 21/22 Skis
The Faction CT 3.0 just received a construction overhaul. Thovex was after the perfect freestyle-inspired one-ski-quiver, and in collaboration with Faction designers he knocked this one out of the park. Its playful shape allows the CT 3.0 to easily butter and wash out for jibbing, and also hold a strong edge when you crank up the dial.
For the rider who is always on the lookout for fresh goods and needs a lightweight, versatile ski to rip up the whole mountain, look no further.

Mounting Point Information by Faction:
“For our 21|22 collection, we are introducing a new mounting point system on all our skis, which has three recommended mounting spots: Newschool, Progressive and Classic, all of which are separated by 15 mm. However, we only have one marked on each ski. The Newschool mount (30 mm forward) is designed for people that want a playful ski, for twin tip inspired riding. The Progressive mount (15 mm forward) is great for versatility, carving and slashing - people that want a more balanced ski but don’t want too forward of a mount. The Classic mount (marked) is designed to offer optimal carving ability and float in deep snow, giving you the most tip length of any mount.
On all of our skis except for the Candide series, we only mark the Classic mount - if you prefer to mount at the Progressive or Newschool points, you will need to measure an additional 15 mm (Progressive) or 30 mm (Newschool) from the marked mounting line.
Conversely, on the Candide series, we only mark the Newschool mount - if you would like to mount it at the Progressive or Classic point, you will need to measure 15 mm back (Progressive) or 30 mm back (Classic) from the marked line
Ultimately, the mounting position of your skis comes down to personal preference and your style of skiing. Some chose to mount the skis further to the front or back of the ski depending on what they want to focus on.
We do not recommend mounting your skis at true center as it has more disadvantages than advantages, even if you only ski park, as it will put you too far ahead of the sidecut of the ski, and negatively impact performance.” (Faction, Autumn 2021)
