The Candide Thovex superlight series ski models are highly praised in the skiing media. Now in its second year, the Faction x Candide Thovex collaboration continues to push the boundaries with its innovative use of lightweight materials (bCores™ D200), technology and design. New this year, the 4.0 is a 122 mm waist, fully rockered backcountry machine.
The skis have generated a lot of buzz in the skiing media, winning prestigious awards by Skiing, Backcountry, Freeskier or Powder Magazine. Kyle Meyr from the freeski community Downdays about the Candide 3.0:
“My favorite feature? The balsa/flax core… When it comes to rockered skis, maintaining a bit of rigidity is everything and this proven construction – it kicked so much ass last year – delivers while still being able to claim to be one of the lightest powder skis on the market. I apologize for getting a bit nerdy there for a second. Point being, these skis are light as hell and will hold up under stress, which means you can overshoot your landings and not fret then hike back up without dying of exhaustion.”
