Faction Candide Thovex CT 5.0 Skis - 2019
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.
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.
Underfoot for maneuverability, quick pivots and slashes
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.
