Poplar/ Beech Core​

Poplar is a light-coloured, medium-weight, durable softwood that flexes and pops nicely as well as having a whole load of vibration absorption capabilities. The darker-coloured, heavier hardwood, Beech, adds stiffness and rebound. The results are a reasonably light ski that grips great and feels snappy between turns - always maintaining a soft enough flex to pop, slash and butter all over the mountain.

 

Directional True Twin

A considerably skinnier tail width than in 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.

Flat Camber

A flat camberline underfoot makes the ski easier to pivot and slash, as well as improving general float and manoeuvrability in fresh snow.

CT Signature Shape

The day Candide clicked into the original CT 5.0, it was love at first flight. A couple of seasons later, the CT 5.0’s shape has been refined to the point of perfection — a blend of new ideas and old truths. The award-winning ski’s iconic silhouette is now represented across the entire CT line. Moderately tapered tips and tails are complemented by an elliptical radius 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. Candide designed the new CT range to be proportional as you descend from the deep-snow-loving 5.0 to the 1.0 daily driver. For the increasingly popular category of high-performance all-mountain skis with freestyle flair, a new benchmark has been set.

CT Signature Flex 

The 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.

CT Mounting Point

As if the Candide Thovex Signature Flex and Shape weren’t enough, the best skier in the world has discovered a new, unique mounting point. The narrowest spot on the ski is the center of the radius, and it happens to be the most intuitive place from which to initiate pivoting of the funkfreaky- freestyle variety. Mounting here also works wonders for carving and popping of f the back and front of your skis.

Titanal/ Rubber Stomp Pad

Titanal and rubber reinforcement under foot adds additional strength to a freestyle ski, where it mat ters most. As well as protecting the wood core against heavy dut y impact on rails, the titanal and rubber adds stability and vibration absorption under your boots, so that stomped landings feel bet ter, both for you and your skis

 

XL 2.5mm Edges

7 fractions of a millimetre might not sound like much, but when it comes to edges, it adds up. The 2.5mm edges stack an extra 35% of height on top of Factions already super-durable standard 1.8mm edges. This extra steel gives the rider a pair of skis that are going to take more abuse and last longer.

 

Full Strength Sidewall

A construction that 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 woodcore, edges and topsheet from impact and outside damage.

Anti-Chip Micro Cap

Micro-cap construction is 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 join that can be prone to chipping.

 

Elliptical Radius Sidecut

Elliptical Radius Sidecut is made 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 result in seamless turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turns lengths and angles.
