The CT Signature Series

Candide Thovex Signature Series

Candide Thovex’s Signature skis are responsive, high performance machines for those who demand the very best from their equipment, just like the legend himself. The Faction Collective have relentlessly mixed the most reliable materials with modern shapes and camber lines in order to create the perfect tools across all freeski disciplines.

CT SIGNATURE SHAPE

Moderately tapered tips and tails are complemented by an elliptical radius sidecut for efficient, precise handling and carving. A combination of generous rocker and modest camber results in a wonderfully playful character, injecting new energy into an otherwise routine day on the mountain. Candide designed the new CT range to be proportional as you descend from the deep-snow-loving 5.0 to the 1.0 daily driver. For the increasingly popular category of high-performance all-mountain skis with freestyle flair, a new benchmark has been set.

CT SIGNATURE FLEX

The living legend is never not tinkering, tweaking, learning, improving. Thovex is adamant that heavy rocker is best complemented by solid, stiffer tips and tails — to help settle the skis and power through variable snow. Additionally, the stiff tips absorb more vibration when skiers touch down after going airborne. Just add a touch more flex under foot and it allows the skis to load up and POP on request. Welcome to the Candide Thovex Signature Flex.

CT SIGNATURE STANCE

As if the Candide Thovex Signature Flex and Shape weren’t enough, the best skier in the world has discovered a new, unique mounting point. The narrowest spot on the ski is the center of the radius, and it happens to be the most intuitive place from which to initiate pivoting of the funkfreaky-freestyle variety. Mounting here also works wonders for carving and popping off the back and front of your skis.

Candide Thovex Series Technology

FULL STRENGTH SIDEWALL

A construction that places strips of protective material along the sides of each core, between the edge and the topsheet. Full strength sidewalls provide the best possible edge hold and stability when the ski is engaged in a turn as well as protecting the woodcore, edges and topsheet from impact and outside damage.

ELLIPTICAL RADIUS SIDECUT

Elliptical Radius Sidecut is made up of a longer radius underfoot and shorter radii in the tip and tail of the ski. The long radius underfoot means you can pivot faster and easier, while a shorter radius in the tip and tail result in easier turn initiation. This sidecut allows for a wide variety of turns lengths, angles and mounting positions.

TITANAL / RUBBER STOMP PAD

Titanal and rubber reinforcement underfoot adds additional strength to a freestyle ski, where it matters most. As well as protecting the wood core against heavy duty impact on rails, the titanal and rubber adds stability and vibration.

ANTI-CHIP MICRO-CAP

Micro-cap construction is a hybrid of a full strength, sandwich sidewall construction fused with a lightweight, durable cap construction. 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.
