Manufacturers description
You can trust in the Candide 3.0 when staring down giant backcountry booters or waist-deep pillow lines. A lightweight and responsive hybrid balsa flax core and progressive sidecut design make the ski easy to maneuver and equally at home whether ploughing through fresh snow or sending it through the air. A 108mm waist width, camber underfoot and rocker provide float in pow and a solid edge hold that will rock the hard pack. Titanal reinforcement underfoot adds trustworthy durability when tapping trees and taking landings deep.

versatile, stable and playful


Pork skid. Was able to drive hard while playing playful and poppy. In my pist I pressed on and challenged it as much as I could and the ski was going well. It went well in the snow. Had been super cool to test in really deep snow. A good allround ski. Rating 5.

Good pop
Stability in the uproot
Swings well in the piste
Speed ​​stability (Considering weight and size)

Not the best flow
The tail may feel limiting in the woods

Has mounted the skid on the Candide mark (about 2-3 cm behind the center) with a pair of Tyrolia turbines. Have traveled with the skid in ice pist, nypistat, 3 dm cold nose, crooked cold nose. In ice piste it is of course not the funniest ski, which can be assumed in terms of width. In nypistat and half-shot piste you can cut at high speed, which can be assumed to depend on the cutting and the minimum rocker.

The ski is best suited to the conditions under which I feel that you can take advantage of the ski's potential to the maximum. In these circumstances, the ski is extremely playful and keeps good stability when increasing speed. In the woods the tail can feel big and clumsy as there is a lot of skis behind the tie, and minimal rocker. In clean cushions the ski is okay but with the minimal rockers the skid has it is hard to keep the peaks above the snow.

Have not tested the ski in the park, in heavy snow or wreck yet. However, think that it's a great ski slope in the park because it's basically an upscale parkside in my eyes. Would recommend this ski to anyone who plays in the skiing system like Candide during the winter / winter, then to ride and go parking in a waster before in the spring

CT (Candide Thovex) 3.0 is available in the length of 204 centimeters, just one such thing. Number three all the tested skis in the golden waist range 100-113 millimeters. The perfect ski for the more jibbic freelancer liked those who tested.
