  • Features

    • You'll love these if you like light, nimble skis that are easy to spin and wash out, you want versatility—including for climbs—and you like to go backwards or land switch
    • These skis are great if you're interested in the Candide 5.0 skis, but want something lighter and quicker from edge to edge
    • Candide Thovex signature shape features moderately tapered tips and tails complemented by an Elliptical Radius sidecut for efficient, precise handling and carving
    • Elliptical Radius sidecut: A longer radius underfoot and shorter radius tips and tails deliver carving performance and effortless response
    • Full-strength sidewalls for maximum power transmission and edge hold
    • Titanal® plate underfoot adds rigidity for more effective transmission of power and for binding screw retention
    • Candide Thovex signature flex is stiffer in the tips and tails for a chatter-free experience and vibration damping
    • Tip and tail rockers
    • 3 mm traditional camber for high-performance edge hold
    • Extra-large 2.5 mm edges—compared to 2 mm industry average—add durability
    • Candide Thovex mounting points are designed for easy pivoting and catlike maneuverability
    • Anti-chip tip and tail caps and matte, high-resistance topsheets increase durability for long-lasting performance
    • Artwork by Candide Thovex
