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: Flax, Balsa, Poplar
We reinforce the super lightweight Balsa with robust Flax fibres plus Poplar strips creating 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 manoeuvrability, 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.
