Candide CT 3.0 2017 | Ski Review

November 18th, 2016


Named and developed for freeski legend, Candide Thovex, the Faction Candide range is designed to be super-versatile for all-mountain fun, whatever the snow conditions. The Candide CT 3.0 is the most versatile at 108mm underfoot; it’s the most popular ski of the bunch, with plenty of awards under its belt to prove it.

The latest incarnation of the 3.0 definitely doesn’t disappoint; it’s feather light, thanks to a balsa wood and flax core, taking it into further realms of ski touring and backcountry freestyle, while new titanal reinforcements in the mounting points improve the smoothness, dampness and power transfer on piste. These materials alone culminate in a ski that’s stiff and strong yet springy and buttery – a great combo if you like skiing fast and blasting though whatever the mountain has to offer. Elsewhere, traditional camber underfoot and a twin tip and tail rocker see to optimal float in powder, grip on piste and performance in the park.

There’s no doubt about it – if you’re an experienced skier and you’re looking for one ski that does everything, you won’t get much closer than the Candide CT 3.0. Whether you want to ride park, huck cliffs or just charge around the whole mountain, here’s a ski that’ll happily oblige – however hard you want to push it. Be sure to check it out if you’re doing a season in Europe this year.
