The CT 5.0 brings the original Candide 4.0 back to life, revived and updated. We keep the same ripping sidecut, the same pivot-on-a-dime flat camber and the same fat 122mm waist width as the legendary first ski we ever developed with Candide. An updated, lightweight Hybrid Core, smoother rocker curves and Anti-Chip Micro-Cap sidewall construction revitalizes this classic ski, polishing up the ride and adding extra durability. Available only in a 183cm length, this is Candide’s ski.
Hybrid Core: Balsa, Flax, Poplar

We reinforce the super lightweight Balsa with robust Flax fibres plus Poplar strips crreating a durable wood core that holds an edge like other skis twice its weight.

Directional 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

Underfoot for maneuverability, quick pivots and slashes

 

Micro-cap

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.
